An excellent best-selling guide to treating the most difficult cases in your practice: personality disorders and other chronic, self-defeating problems.  This approach is a pioneering integration of cognitive behavior therapy with gestalt, object relations, and psychoanalytic approaches.  The author describes how he adapted traditional cognitive therapy techniques to more effectively treat patients with narcissistic, borderline, passive-aggressive, dependent, and other personality disorders, as well as chronic dysthymic and anxious patients.  Contains rationale, theory, practical applications, and active cognitive behavioral techniques.  Presents an extended case example, and updated revisions of the Young Schema Questionnaire, a Client's Guide to this approach, and schema listings.  Click here to go to Author's web site: https://www.schematherapy.com/

Reviews
"During a 10-year stint as director of research and training at Beck's Center for Cognitive Therapy in Philadelphia, Jeffrey Young trained hundreds of clinicians in his unique approach to cognitive therapy.  In this little volume, written primarily for the mental health professional, he presents his innovative...cognitively oriented approach to the treatment of patients with personality disorders and a variety of related chronic, self defeating problems."
     -Contemporary Psychology

"This is a well written book which will make a positive contribution to the field of short term therapy.  The case studies are clearly presented and generalize to similar situations from one's own practice."
     -Psychotherapy in Private Practice

"This book is a nice addition to cognitive-behavioral therapy.  It is well done because it operationalizes the centerpiece of cognitive-behavioral therapy, schemas, and outlines methods for change."
     -Leon A. Hyer, EdD, ABPP, Augusta, Georgia VAMC
