"This book gives us new voices in the literature on behavioral activation. It is to be commended for its practicality as well as its well articulated treatment of basic behavioral theory. The authors bring together the principles of BA with important concepts in other newer behavior therapies in a readable and engaging format. Behavioral Activation is an outstanding work, and will be a welcomed addition to the libraries of beginning and seasoned clinicians." - Christopher Martell, Clinical Associate Professor Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Department of Psychology, University of Washington, USA 'All therapists who treat depression should read this excellent overview of behavioural activation. The authors describe an integrated model of depression and a stepped care approach in the application of the behavioural activation. There are good clinical examples and descriptions of how to apply the principles in practice.' - David Veale, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, UK "This book is one of the latest additions to the CBT Distinctive Features Series, an attractive collection of inexpensive hardbacks that distill key ideas into brief, accessible, focused presentations. Quite the page-turner. These authors have succeeded nicely at a difficult task. By page 8, it's clear that this is a treatment worth learning. This is an accessible summary that any clinician would appreciate. A lot of people who have been suffering are going to have an amazing chance to get better." -Mitch Earlrywine in PsycCRITIQUES Vol. 54
