The 10 Minute Consultation
Using CBT in General Practice provides GPs with an overview of the basic principles of CBT and shows how these principles can be applied within a typical 10 minute consultation. The book is written in a user-friendly, interactive and practical style and focuses on realistic ways to make CBT work by helping patients to make positive changes to their lives.
Key features include:
* case examples to highlight how the techniques can be applied in practice for patients with particular problems or clinical conditions
* problem-solving sections describe how to manage time constraints
* a new consultation model that can be used to implement CBT in general practice
* overviews of the major clinical psychological conditions that can be treated using CBT
Using CBT in General Practice uniquely provides the practical advice needed to implement CBT within the time constraints of a busy practice - it is therefore essential reading for all GPs who must now offer CBT as a treatment option. As this is a practical manual and not just a book of theory, it will also appeal to other professionals involved in the management of patients with psychological problems such as practice nurses, health visitors, community psychiatric nurses, practice counsellors and palliative care doctors.
From the foreword:
I wish Lee David' s book had been around 20 years ago; because then I could have helped a lot more people and had a lot more fun.
I wish every GP would read it; because then they' d be able to help a lot more people and have a lot more fun.
