?  About our Ebooks


Expanding the therapist's toolkit, this book provides creative activities and exercises for every stage of the cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) process, from initial diagnosis through to relapse prevention.

The exercises are an integrated part of the CBT work and assist in the process of acquiring the required skills and behavioural outcomes. Drawing on creative techniques such as clay therapy and guided imagery, each chapter focuses on a different stage or element of the CBT process and provides creative exercises to enhance the work, with clear step-by-step instructions and case examples.


'Dr Sherwood's innovative text adds holistic, therapeutic depth and breadth to classical CBT through introducing specific, replicable and evaluable sequences of steps drawn from the creative art therapies, incorporating mediums of sand, colour, drama, clay and play. Client transformations are advanced through working with these expressive therapeutic materials within a CBT framework. This excellent book is highly recommended for members of the healing professions in general and counselling psychologists in particular.'
- Steve Edwards, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of Zululand
