Dr. Leahy's successful techniques draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and practices to help you boost your self-esteem and confidence, decrease anxiety and feelings of helplessness, and develop resilience and strength during your unemployment. By keeping your head and learning how to deal with this time, you can learn how to live your life more effectively once you get a job.
Despite the efforts of therapists and patients, many patients in cognitive-behavioral therapy or any therapy do not improve. This unique book is designed to help the clinician better understand and work with patients who seem unable or unwilling to make needed changes. Integrating ideas from a range of psychotherapeutic approaches, the book presents a multidimensional model of resistance. It enumerates the specific impediments to change that may arise in the cognitive therapy context and brings each one to life with realistic clinical illustrations. Clinicians learn practical strategies and interventions to deal with a number of types of resistance, from reluctance to comply with basic cognitive procedures to risk-aversion and self-handicapping. Also addressed are countertransference issues, including workable ways that clinicians can modify their own responses to patients to overcome impasses in treatment.
This book is a unique and practical clinician's toolbox and includes bibliographical references and index. This book pulls together all the pieces a clinician needs to do effective therapy for seven of the most common disorders and integrates symptoms, theory, interventions, patient education, and data collection so well for so many diagnoses.
