CBT for Worry and Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Tailored to current High and Low Intensity (IAPT) training, it covers self-help literature as well as traditional one-to-one therapy. The book:
- contains illustrative case material, balancing an evidence-based approach with awareness of the realities of today's practice
- alerts trainees to the potential complicating factors and the co-existence of other anxiety or mood disorders alongside GAD
- addresses cross-cutting professional themes, such as working with morbidity and the pressures of working within NHS settings.
Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this book is essential reading for all CBT trainees on IAPT programmes, as well as trainees on postgraduate counselling, psychotherapy and clinical psychology courses. Qualified therapists who require an update in this area will also find this a useful resource.
'Several evidence-based CBT programmes for GAD have been developed. This book provides an outstanding guide to one of the best validated approaches, based on the Laval model, and is likely to be of interest to any clinician treating GAD, including those working in IAPT services.'

A great book, well written. A must read when learning about Generalized Anxiety Disorder and worry.
The content was not relevant for the task we are hoping to achieve. However for people interested in generalised anxiety disorder, this book provides a structured process to be followed or adapt for client needs.
This is an excellent textbook which sets out practical and understandable CBT treatment approaches for worry and general anxiety disorders. This book is suitable for new and experienced CBT therapists and for those teaching CBT skills.
The text offers students an overview of CBT theory in relation to GAD. Well written and easily accessible.
This book is very reader-friendly and as such is more accessible than the protocol text. It will be useful source for students on both our courses
Very student friendly text with extremely useful self report questionnaires incorporated.
A good text which provides useful additional reading for CBT students and therapists. I have suggested it will be used as a supplementary text as it lacks more details on the socialisation aspects of client introduction to CBT interventions, not enough on self-help approaches and also on the amount of effort required to ameliorate this distressing condition. Neveretheless I enjoyed reading the book and will refer to it when lecturing or writing articles so tghis is not to be taken as a negative review.
