Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a popular psychological treatment for many common mental health problems. While its effectiveness is based on solid empirical evidence, to apply CBT techniques successfully in a real world setting, clinicians must engage and inspire the individuals they are treating. Narrative is a powerful communication tool that can greatly aid in this endeavor.Stories and Analogies in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy teaches practical CBT by employing relevant stories, metaphors, analogies, quotations, and anecdotes. The book also demonstrates how practitioners can use the examples described with their clients and patients.

Based on the accrued wisdom of the author and many other leading CBT practitioners, Stories and Analogies in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy provides clinicians with a well organized, accessible guide to facilitate effective change within the therapy session.
