The central aims of this work are: to review critically models of attention and their application to attentional processes in emotional disorders; To develop an integrative theoretical framework and model for conceptualizing attentional processes associated with the aetiology and maintenance of emotional stress reactions; and to discuss the implications for clinical practice of attentional theories of emotional dysfunction.

Patients with complex problems, including co-morbidity, chronic conditions, enduring vulnerabilities, psychotic conditions, persistent difficulties with social relationships and destabilising social environments, are increasingly recognised as the reality of the therapist's case load. The cognitive behavioural case formulation approach can be particularly suited to the treatment of such complex cases. This book brings together some of the most experienced and expert cognitive behavioural therapists to share their specialist experience of formulation and treatment of these complex cases. The experienced clinician will find in these accounts: * Evidence-based approaches to assessment and formulation of complex cases * A wide range of problems not restricted to disorder categories, including anger, low self-esteem, abuse and shame * A concern with the realities of clinical practice which involves complex cases that do not fit neatly into simple case conceptualisations or diagnostic categories Many of these chapters highlight the difficulties and complexities encountered by the clinician in conceptualising and treating these cases. However, they go beyond raising awareness of issues and provide,. where appropriate, specific guidance on dealing with problems of engagement, socialisation, and implementation of treatment in complex cases.

Rumination (recyclic negative thinking), is now recognised as important in the development, maintenance and relapse of recurrence of depression. For instance, rumination has been found to elevate, perpetuate and exacerbate depressed mood, predict future episodes of depression, and delay recovery during cognitive therapy. Cognitive therapy is one of the most effective treatments for depression. However, depressive relapse and recurrence following cognitive therapy continue to be a significant problem. An understanding of the psychological processes which contribute to relapse and recurrence may guide the development of more effective interventions. This is a major contribution to the study and treatment of depression which reviews a large body of research on rumination and cognitive processes, in depression and related disorders, with a focus on the implications of this knowledge for treatment and clinical management of these disorders. * First book on rumination in depressive and emotional disorders * Contributors are the leaders in the field * First editor is a rising researcher and clinician with specialist interest in depression, and second editor is world renowned for his work on cognitive therapy of emotional disorders

Diagnostik und Behandlung der Generalisierten Angststörung gelten nach wie vor als schwierig, zudem ist die Wirksamkeit der Behandlung derzeit geringer als bei anderen Angststörungen. Umso wichtiger ist es, die neuen Modelle und die neuen Behandlungsmöglichkeiten bei dieser Störung kennen zu lernen. Der Band gibt eine praxisnahe Darstellung aktueller kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutischer Ansätze, die spezifisch für das Störungsbild der Generalisierten Angststörung entwickelt wurden.Die Generalisierte Angststörung ist schwerer als andere Angststörungen zu identifizieren und differenzialdiagnostisch abzugrenzen, die psychologischen Modelle der Störung sind komplex und noch nicht vereinheitlicht, und nicht zuletzt ist die Störung schwer behandelbar. Patienten mit dieser Störung blockieren allzu leicht den Therapeuten mit immer neuen Sorgen und Zweifeln und verhindern ein strukturiertes Vorgehen, wie es sich bei anderen Angststörungen längst durchgesetzt hat. In den letzten Jahren wurden jedoch verschiedene effektive kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutische Modelle und Methoden speziell für die Behandlung der Generalisierten Angststörung entwickelt, die in diesem Band vorgestellt werden, nämlich die Sorgenexposition, die kognitive Therapie nach Wells und die Angewandte Entspannung. Die anschauliche Erläuterung der einzelnen Schritte wird durch zahlreiche Arbeitsmaterialien für die Therapie ergänzt
