"This is an important and timely book that fills a gap in the literature. There are few other comparable texts that address the behavioural approach to rehabilitation at this level of detail.

It is supported by research evidence demonstrating the close links between clinical and research expertise." - Nadina Lincoln, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Nottingham, UK
