CBT for Psychological Well-Being in Cancer is the first clinical manual to target psychological well-being in cancer by combining skill sets from DBT and other well-researched approaches, providing clinical material in a clear session-by-session structure organized by topic.
  • The first skills training manual in the field to provide an integrated session-by-session outline that clinicians can customize for their own needs
  • Adaptive and contextualist in approach – Carlson integrates skill sets from DBT, ACT, behavioral activation, and motivational Interviewing to promote efficacy and cost-effectiveness
  • The text provides a unique range of resources to support for clinicians, including session guides, specific interventions, client handouts, and invaluable measurement and tracking tools for those clinicians required to report outcomes
  • The content can be flexibly deployed by clinicians into their existing work to meet the needs of specific patients in individual or group treatment contexts, by selecting the most appropriate sessions, skills, and handouts
