Internationally respected authors, actively working in this area, establish theoretical reasons for extending cognitive therapy to these symptoms. This includes a justification for looking at symptoms rather than syndromes, first-person accounts of delusions and hallucinations along with an analysis of why the cognitive approach is ideally suited to the study and treatment of these disabling disorders. Describes how to make a cognitive assessment of both hallucinations and delusions and which measures to use. Contains new research and methods of managing these severe psychoses.
This book provides a practical framework for using a person based cognitive therapy approach for addressing the range of problems experienced by people with psychosis. Chapters 1-4 provide a context for the approach and chapters 5-12 cover the clinical application of the approach.

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. This book describes the clinical guidelines and detailed therapy procedures used in the practice of cognitive behaviour therapy for patients with schizophrenic disorders.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder that can devastate the lives of patients and their families. The condition is chronic and may persist throughout patients' lives, disrupting education and work and greatly reducing the quality of life. Affecting nearly 0.8% of the population worldwide, schizophrenia is a serious public health problem demanding improved treatment. Recent progress in neuroscience and biological studies of schizophrenia is promising. However, to understand the concomitant behavioral characteristics and implement effective treatment programs, multifaceted approaches are required. "Comprehensive Treatment of Schizophrenia" was the subject of the 8th Keio University International Symposium for Life Sciences and Medicine, held in Tokyo. From the symposium, 40 papers were chosen to be included here in nine sections covering the broad spectrum of recent clinical progress in the treatment of schizophrenia and allied disorders.

‘This volume provides the most comprehensive presentation to date of the phenomenology, clinical aspects and cognitive therapy of persistent depression. The text is highly readable, replete with illustrative case material, and highlighted by concise summaries at the end of each chapter. The treatment approach, already validated in the famed Cambridge–Newcastle clinical trial, is an invaluable contribution.’ Aaron T. Beck, M.D. Drawing on extensive clinical experience, Richard G. Moore and Anne Garland present a cognitive model of persistent depression that places particular importance on the role of thinking styles, underlying beliefs, subtle forms of avoidance and environmental factors. For the practitioner, this book offers guidance on how to address particular issues that commonly arise at each stage of therapy, such as: the patient is reluctant to engage in therapy the patient’s negative thinking does not respond to standard therapeutic techniques the patient’s negative beliefs have much basis in their experience the therapist becomes demoralised by the apparent lack of progress in therapy Through extensive clinical material, Cognitive Therapy for Chronic and Persistent Depression demonstrates how entrenched negative thinking patterns and ongoing avoidance can be addressed to achieve significant change in many people’s lives. This book is essential reading for any therapist working with these hard to help patients, such as clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses, psychiatrists, social workers and counsellors.
