Summary 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 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 can cause helplessness, depression and suicidal behaviour. Mental health professionals in training and practice will find this an authoritative and practical guide to cognitive behaviour therapy of psychoses and related theoretical concepts
