Reflection in CBT
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy | Reflective Practice
Developing skills and competency in CBT is a complex process of which self-observation and self-reflection are an essential part. In this new book, leading figures Beverly Haarhoff and Richard Thwaites outline the rationale for a focus on self-reflective practice in CBT, before offering practical and accessible guidelines demonstrating how this can be achieved in training and practice.
Highlighting relevant research throughout and using case studies to illustrate theory in practice, ten chapters consider:
- reflection in training and in supervision and self-supervision,
- reflecting on the therapeutic relationship, on our sociocultural perceptions and biases and on client feedback
- how reflection is vital to self-care and to becoming a better therapist, supervisor and trainer.
This is an essential read for trainees in both high and low intensity CBT programmes, those on broader CBT courses, and for qualified practitioners working independently to enhance their self-reflective capacity.
This is an important book in the journey of CBT: a book that has needed to be written. With the greatest of pleasure I can report that the authors have done an admirable job.
This is a comprehensive, well-researched and well-organised book that is valuable for CBT practitioners at all levels of experience and that offers the reader an original approach to becoming a more effective CBT therapist.
I encourage you to engage with, reflect deeply upon and carry forward the insights, challenges and strategies offered to you in this masterful treatment of reflection in CBT.
A practical and accessible book. The chapter on self-practice/self-reflection has been particularly useful for our course.
This is a useful additional source for the self practice self reflection part of our CBT programme. The layout is clear and helpful, a lot of it is helpful for this group but there are also some really useful sections for therapists with more experience which are really useful
This is indeed very helpful, especially for my CBT trainees who are in placement to employ the best of the supervision they receive either from myself or supervisors at placements. It will be adopted as an essential reading from September 2016
