Review "A masterwork of CBT for the next generation. Tolin bases his approach on the (often-neglected) fundamentals of behavior therapy, and deftly merges them with the new science of emotion regulation, acceptance, and mindfulness. I was delighted to see that Tolin provides a wealth of information about dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). This book picks up on what so many other CBT texts miss, such as how to manage the therapeutic relationship, how to make clinical decisions based on case conceptualization, how to deal with treatment-interfering behaviors, and how to approach truly challenging cases. All that, and it’s an entertaining read to boot--how many textbooks can make that claim? This book is a 'must read' for every clinician, student, and professional who wants to deliver excellent CBT."--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director Emeritus, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington; developer of DBT "A thoughtful and pragmatic guide to the practice of CBT. Tolin not only describes what to do, but also lays out a theoretical basis for his recommendations. His approach is clinically informed and eminently practical. This book does a marvelous job of cutting through the academic clutter and speaking directly to what needs to be done in the clinical context. It will prove to be an invaluable training tool for students in psychology and the allied professions."--Steven D. Hollon, PhD, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University "As CBT becomes the dominant scientifically informed approach to treatment, having access to easily digestible explanations of core concepts is increasingly important. Tolin presents sophisticated concepts in a lively manner, with case examples that run through each chapter. I plan to adopt this book in my graduate course on CBT, and expect it to be a go-to resource in treatment planning. I recommend this book to every clinician at every level, given the universality and broad appeal of the approach."--Dean McKay, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Fordham University; past president, Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies "Truly a definitive volume on how to implement CBT principles with skill, sensitivity, and flexibility. This is a 'must-read' book for anyone who is learning, practicing, or teaching CBT; I will certainly use it in my graduate course. Tolin weaves complex scientific knowledge into his clear, clinically relevant, step-by-step guide. The prose is engaging, accessible, and sometimes even wry. Don’t be daunted by the book's comprehensiveness--you will thoroughly enjoy every chapter!"--Lizabeth Roemer, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Boston "This is a very useful book written by one of the field’s leading clinician-researchers. Tolin moves the reader through the process of formulating a patient’s difficulties and then directly tyi
