The purpose of the book is to increase knowledge and awareness of how CBT can be applied within a theoretical framework from which physiotherapists and occupational therapists work. The book explains the psychological model and provides a rationale for applying CBT as a tool to strengthen physiotherapy and occupational therapy interventions.
By bringing new knowledge to the practice of physiotherapists and occupational therapists in regard to CBT approaches opens up new options in relation to the management of specific conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, fibromyalgia and other specialist areas.
Case studies are integral to this book, highlighting the application of CBT, outlining the strategies, and illustrating the outcomes and boundaries of treatment.
This is not a book for experts in CBT: focusing on physiotherapy and occupational therapy professions, Donaghy and her co-authors link models of current practice with CBT interventions, giving parameters an integrated practice.
