Cognitive Therapy

Today, under pressure from managed care companies as well as from patients who are demanding briefer and more focused treatments, therapists are creatively combining cognitive and psychodynamic approaches and obtaining unprecedented therapeutic results. In this volume, Robert Leahy describes Aaron Beck's seminal model of depression, anxiety, anger, and relationship conflict and shows how each of these problems is handled by the cognitive therapist in the context of an interactive therapeutic relationship. Leahy demonstrates how uncovering resistance to change and using the therapeutic relationship enhances recovery and promotes rapid change. With concrete examples he shows how to implement all of the basic cognitive techniques, including: —activity scheduling —graded task assignments —exposure hierarchies —response prevention —challenging underlying schemas —thought monitoring Drawing from cognitive and dynamic orientations and taking into account the complexity of countertransference and resistance, this book is for today's clinicians who, rather than being wedded to a specific approach, are committed to a quick and successful therapeutic outcome.

Persecutory Delusions

Paranoia is the fear that others intend to cause you harm. It occurs most dramatically as delusions of persecution in conditions such as schizophrenia, but it is related to suspicious thoughts that occur in some 10-20% of the general population. Typical concerns might be that people are trying to harm you, saying bad things behind your back, deliberately irritating you, or conspiring against you. It is one of the most significant psychiatric problems, and increasingly, researchers and clinicians have begun to focus on understanding paranoid experience. In this landmark publication, the three major authorities in the field bring together the current knowledge about the assessment, understanding, and treatment of persecutory delusions. Leading experts in cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, social psychiatry, neuroimaging, and neuroscience explain their perspectives on paranoia. Pharmacological, cognitive, and family interventions are comprehensively reviewed, and personal accounts of paranoia are included.
