An authoritative practitioner guide and student text, this book offers clear advice on how to structure and lead cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) groups and overcome common challenges that arise. Specific, evidence-based group assessment and treatment protocols are provided for a range of frequently encountered disorders. Emphasizing that a CBT group is more than the sum of its individual members, the authors show how to understand and use group process to optimize outcomes. Up to date, accessible, and highly practical, the book is filled with session outlines, sample dialogues, checklists, troubleshooting tips, and other user-friendly features.

Serves as a supplemental text in graduate-level courses.

''Provides an excellent and comprehensive discussion of the basic structure and implementation of CBT techniques offered in a group format. The book is a must-read for beginning group therapists, providing in-depth coverage on how to perform behavioraI strategies in a group, establish group rules, interact with problem members, work with a cotherapist, and decide between sticking with the agenda versus pursuing unplanned group interaction. Important questions are raised in a thoughtful manner....We wholeheartedly recommend this book to those interested in researching and conducting CBGT and endorse the recommendations regarding future directions to maximize group process integration in CBT groups.''
