Organized around specific psychological disorders, this important work brings together leading scientist-practitioners to present strategies for maximizing the benefits of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Described are effective ways not only to overcome frequently encountered treatment obstacles, but also to help people stay well once therapy has ended. Tightly edited chapters provide clear recommendations for adapting standard treatment protocols for tough-to-treat patients; enhancing motivation and homework compliance; dealing with common comorbidities; complementing CBT with other approaches; and targeting the factors that contribute to relapse and recurrence.

"Cognitive-behavioral therapy has demonstrated success in a large number of treatment areas, but important challenges remain. These include the maximization of acute care to people suffering from mental disorders and, more importantly, a shift in focus to the prevention of relapse and recurrence. In this innovative work, some of the world's foremost authorities demonstrate what is known about the predictors of outcome and how the field can use this knowledge to maximize treatment. As such, this volume helps to fill a recognized void in the treatment of mental disorders. Congratulations to the editors and authors for challenging the field to think outside of its usual parameters! This book should be required reading for mental health professionals."--Keith S. Dobson, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Calgary, Canada
"I wish this kind of sophisticated graduate-level text had been available 30 years ago, when I was in training. Although CBT is clearly a first-line, evidence-based treatment for many mental disorders, such treatment does not always yield complete and lasting remission of symptoms. This book provides a complete, state-of-the-art review of what can be done to enhance the maintenance and generalization of behavior change for clients with refractory or relapsing problems. This is an excellent choice as an advanced graduate-level text for the mental health professions. The cast of contributing authors is first-rate!"--Bruce A. Thyer, PhD, College of Social Work, Florida State University
"This powerful new book answers an important need in the implementation of CBT: how to go beyond basic methods to enhance treatment response and reduce the risk for relapse. Full of clinical insights and innovative ideas, this important contribution will help clinicians build advanced skills in reaching difficult-to-treat patients. The authors provide a cogent and practical guide to solving many of the most vexing problems encountered in clinical practice."--Jesse H. Wright, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Louisville School of Medicine
"This volume is an excellent resource both for therapists working to master CBT and for seasoned practitioners who want to increase their effectiveness. Each chapter takes a major Axis I problem and summarizes empirically supported treatment approaches. The authors then provide clear, practical suggestions for overcoming problems encountered when treating that disorder, getting better results, and reducing the risk of relapse. Antony, Ledley, and Heimberg have produced a book that belongs on my short list of the most valuable texts in CBT. It will be excellent for graduate students if paired with another text that introduces the basic principles of CBT."--James Pretzer, PhD, Cleveland Center for Cognitive Therapy
