Noted for its clarity and practical utility, the definitive guide to behavioral activation (BA) is now in a revised and expanded second edition. The authors are leading experts who enumerate BA principles and provide guidelines for assessment and intervention. Clinicians learn effective procedures for structuring each session, identifying and scheduling antidepressant activities, targeting avoidance and rumination, and monitoring progress. Illustrated with an extended case example, sample dialogues, and quick-reference tables, the book features 16 reproducible worksheets and forms. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials--plus a supplemental client booklet--in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
