Dr. John Ludgate has come up with more than 60 reproducible handouts, worksheets, and forms for therapists and clients alike. Following the skill-development focus of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, homework assignments are an intrinsic part of CBT practice. The homework assignments and handouts facilitate learning and generalization of skills that are helpful in reducing distress or changing behaviors. Each section describes: who the resource is applicable to, when in therapy it is introduced, how to introduce it to the clients, how to deal with common problems that may come up, and recommended additional resources for therapists and clients. Book also includes a link for purchasers to download reproducible materials and audio recordings for personal use, or for use with individual clients.
"In clear, simple language, John Ludgate lays out the basic principles of Cognitive-Behavior Therapy and describes a wide range of problems for which CBT is useful. Better yet, he provides a treasure trove of worksheets and forms to help practitioners and clients deal with life’s problems more effectively. I highly recommend this book, written by one of CBT’s master clinicians and trainers." -Scott Temple, PhD, Clinical Professor, Departments of Psychiatry & Medicine, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics
"Clinicians have been gifted this masterfully created collection of handouts, broken down with clinical explanations and detailed instructions, to maximize the effectiveness of the homework and in-session procedures used in CBT. This allows clinicians everywhere to share the benefits of these pre-created and succinct handouts with their clients as they embark together in the treatment process." -Susan D. OldenKamp, LCPC, NCC, Founder of the CBT Center of Idaho, Certified CBT Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy
