This is the first text to give a systematic, in-depth coverage of adult clinical problems and their treatment in a cognitive-behavioural perspective. The book has been specifically prepared for clinical psychologists in training or recently qualified, and for students of psychology. It shows clearly how cognitive-behavioural approaches can be applied to a wide range of clinical problems, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, mental handicap and schizophrenia.
