I found particularly useful and clear their systematic treatment of types of emotional cognitions with appropriate interventions... I shall recommend it without hesitation to my trainee clinical psychologists' - Behaviour Research and Therapy This eminently practical guide is designed for trainee and practising counsellors and other professional helpers involved in cognitive-behavioural counselling.

Finally, guidance is offered on its application to specific emotional problems: anxiety, depression, anger/aggression, shame and guilt.
