This book examines:
the social significance of interventions that target mental-wellbeing and psychological disorder
why treatments are ‘lost in translation’ from research to routine practice
steps that can be taken towards a translation that better recognises the complexity of research and ensures fidelity to an evidence-based treatment protocol
the deleterious effects of current provision on clients and therapists.
Towards a Mental Health System that Worksis a valuable resource for therapists, mental health practitioners, Clinical Commissioning Groups and politicians, enabling them to critically evaluate service provision, distil what constitutes cost-effective evidence-based mental health practice across the whole spectrum of disorders and client populations, and chart a new direction. It also serves as a guide to consumers of mental health services, as well as their friends and family, allowing them to understand what they are likely to experience and what they can demand.
As Nicholas reveals the intricacies of his amazing long life, Brett discovers not only the origins of every facet of the much beloved Santa Claus myth, but also that, when confronted with the miraculous, faith is the only rational choice left.
Supervision requires a combination of knowledge and skill – the knowledge of the appropriate CBT protocol for the situation and the skill to equip the practitioner with the competencies to deliver these protocols in the context in which they are operating. In Simply Effective CBT Supervision, Michael J. Scott provides a unique guide to the particular skills necessary to monitor the fidelity and competence with which an EBT is implemented. There is an emphasis throughout on the importance of experiential learning, with detailed transcripts of supervisor-supervisee conversations, a focus on group supervision and the management of group processes. The power differential between supervisor and supervisee is acknowledged and addressed with guidelines and safeguards that will ensure that client needs can be addressed in a spirit of collaborative empiricism, and the text also covers the importance of matching the supervisor and supervisee. The book also incorporates downloadable worksheets for supervisor and supervisee.
Covering the skills necessary to be an effective CBT supervisor, this is the ideal book for current and prospective CBT supervisors looking to extend their knowledge base.
