Cognitive Coping Therapy partners coping skills therapy and cognitive behavior therapy. It offers cognitive coping therapy, which essentially develops coping skills therapy, into a comprehensive model of care. It presents a practiced theory and underlying philosophy for the approach, along with methodology and guidelines for implementing it. It refines and further extends cognitive behavioral practice theory and, in doing so, offers case studies to illustrate how to use the model with a variety of disorders. A new coping skills slant for treating a variety of disorders.


"This is an up-to-date and well-integrated book on the many important aspects of cognitive-behavior therapy. Like Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), it adequately covers coping skills training and specific behavioral methods of treatment; and it also thoroughly includes the cognitive restructuring of absolutistic irrational beliefs and the use of sensation, experiential, and feeling processes. Very well done!" -- Albert Ellis, President, Albert Ellis Institute, New York City and author of Overcoming Destructive Beliefs, Feelings, and Behaviors
