Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Of Schizophrenia Reviews


..."there are many useful ideas and comments which will stimulate the intersts of clinicians....Much of the work described would improve the quality of relationships with patients, even if systematic cognitive behavioural therapy is not attempted. For that reason I would recommend this book very highly to all professionals working with people with psychosis." --"Psychological Medicine"
"Applicable to a wide yet sophisticated readership including practicing clinicians, academicians, and graduate students. It is a useful guidebook for mental health professionals working with schizophrenic spectrum patients....The book would be an excellent text for a graduate seminar in special topics in cognitive therapy for advanced students with a solid background in cognitive therapy....A welcome addition to the literature. Kingdon and Turkington's readable style, thoughtful conceptual analysis, clear descriptions of techniques, and vivid case examples recommend the book to a wide readership." --"Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy"
...".it is full of stimulating ideas and guidelines, it is instructive and easy to read, and abounds with enthusiasm for working with psychotic patients on a psychological level. In this context I recommend it highly to any professional involved with such patients, even if methodical therapeutic work is not envisaged." --"International Review of Psychiatry"
"The case material is rich, and the patients come to life...I finished the book wanting to become more expert in cognitive-behavioral therapy and looking forward to reading the results of their controlled studies." --"Psychiatric Services"
"One student who reviewed this book in my graduate seminarexpressed these feelings: 'Before I read this book, I was doubtful that there was much in the individual psychotherapy literature that provided useful guidelines for working with schizophrenic persons. Now, I feel differently and more optimistic.' I agree." --"Contemporary Psychology"

"This is an immensely practical therapy manual for use in real-world clinical practice....[The authors] help readers conceptualise the huge variety of presentations falling within this diagnostic category and emphasise the underlying principles and attitudes that are essential to delivering this intervention effectively....The book reflects the authors' considerable experience disseminating this therapeutic approach for wider application in mental health settings. It makes for an interesting read, and is particularly recommended to mental health professionals who are already familiar with CBT and work within a psychiatric service setting."--"British Journal of Psychiatry"

"The basic message the authors convey, that psychotic patients can be engaged and worked with from a cognitive-behavioral perspective and that delusions and hallucinations are in many instance changeable and not immutable, is a valuable one. Finally, Kingdon and Turkington's enthusiasm for their work with patients and encouragement to other therapists adds a nice touch." --Kim T. Mueser, Department of Psychiatry, Dartmouth Medical School, New Hampshire-Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center, Concord, NH
"There have always been people who were able to come to reasonable terms with unreasonable experiences and there have always been relatives and friends who were able to help them do so. People who suffer from schizophrenia have found it particularly difficult to struggle through on their own and their families often feel powerless to help. This book shows how both parties, and professional health workers, how a rational approach to distressing symptoms can supplement and sometimes supplant other methods of treatment. It is worth reading." --John Wing, CBE, MD, PhD, FRCPsych, The Royal College of Psychiatrists
"The authors have developed an important approach to the psychological and social treatment of people with schizophrenia. The book is extremely well written and draws impressively from a wide range of valuable data." --John S. Strauss, MD, Yale University Department of Psychiatry
"This book will give a 'shot in the arm' to clinicians interested in working with psychotic patients....When I first started using and talking about cognitive therapy in the early 1960s, I thought that this therapy would be largely limited to patients with various neuroses, such as depression, anxiety disorder, phobias, and the like. When professionals at seminars and conferences asked me to state the conditions for which cognitive therapy was not indicated, I would say, 'Schizophrenia.' It is such a pleasant surprise now to see that I was wrong--cognitive therapy does have a direct application to this disorder....It is my expectation that the present volume will make this approach available to a vast army of mental health workers who are struggling with the difficult problems of this disorder and, at the same time, will provide new hope for patients with schizophrenia." --From the Foreword by Aaron T. Beck, MD
"Our understanding of the biological basis of schizophrenic illnesses has expanded rapidly in recent years. Antipsychotic medications remain the mainstay of treatment, but many people suffering from schizophrenia can also benefit from cognitive-behavioral therapy. Drs. Kingdon and Turkington provide an excellent review of the theoretical background of these treatments as well as useful illustrations of these techniques in operation. Cognitive-behavioral treatments have replaced the older, and largely invalid, psychoanalytical approaches to the psychological treatment of psychosis. The addition of these new psychological techniques to our improved pharmacological therapies provides considerable hope for the schizophrenia sufferer." --Robin M. Murray, M.D., D.Sc.
