The main principle behind cognitive behaviour therapy is that a client's emotional and behavioural disturbances are not determined by events, but by the way he or she views them. Cognitive behaviour therapy is an innovative approach to the psychological care and treatment of people with psychotic disorders. This book provides a concise overview of essential theory and techniques, clearly illustrated with case examples, and is aimed at clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, mental-health nurses and therapists. The techniques described in this book have been developed and evaluated in clinical and research settings, and offer a comprehensive approach which focuses on the four main problems presented by people with psychosis: Emotional disturbance; Psychotic symptoms such as delusions and bizarre beliefs; Social disabilities; Relapse risk. The therapy recognises the wide variation in people's problems and a wide variety of therapeutic techniques may be used, based on an individual formulation of the client's problems, which is developed collaboratively between client and therapist. But this book is more than a treatment manual: it sets the treatment approach within a rationale which takes full account of the experience of the client and the way an individual attempts to cope with psychotic symptoms, which ca cause helplessness, depression & suicidal behaviour.
