Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression, Hardback Book

Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression Hardback


This groundbreaking book explains the "whats" and "how-tos" of metacognitive therapy (MCT), an innovative form of cognitive-behavioral therapy with a growing empirical evidence base.

MCT developer Adrian Wells shows that much psychological distress results from how a person responds to negative thoughts and beliefs-for example, by ruminating or worrying-rather than the content of those thoughts.

He presents practical techniques and specific protocols for addressing metacognitive processes to effectively treat generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression.

Special features include reproducible treatment plans and assessment and case formulation tools, plus a wealth of illustrative case material.
