Product Overview

Cognitive-Behavioral Methods for Social Workers: A Workbook
Jacqueline Corcoran, Virginia Commonwealth University

This new workbook provides students witha working knowledge of cognitive behavioral therapy from a strengths-based perspective.

This text increases students' awareness that cognitive-behavioral interventions are helpful in a wide range of practice settings, not just private practice.Using numerous case examples and applications, students learn skills for assessing, planning, and implementing cognitive-behavioral interventions in practice.

Increasingly, social workers are held to standards of accountability in which they are called upon to practice with methods that have been supported by the best available evidence.Cognitive-behavioral therapy is an evidence-based approach validated for many types of problem areas in social work and counseling.


-The workbook format, with clear explanations, numerous examples, and exercises, provides students with immediate practice in applying the concepts and techniques presented.

-Case examples cover a wide-range of practice settings and client problems and populations, demonstrating how students can adapt their techniques to the different situations social workers may encounter.

-Teaches students how to construct scales and single-system designs to evaluate their work with individual client systems, helping them address a key component of evidence-based practice that involves social workers' facility and competence in evaluating their own practice with individual clients (Chapter 2).

-Discusses how to manage barriers to intervention, such as lack of motivation and compliance.Principles and basic interventions from motivational interviewing are also included (Chapters 10 and 11).
