Change for the better back with third edition
Date:1/24/2008

Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, and Singapore (25 January, 2008) Elizabeth Wilde McCormicks best-selling guide to Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is published in a third edition today, with even more valuable advice on self-help through practical psychotherapy.

Building on the success and popularity of the first two editions, Change for the better (published by SAGE) illustrates in ordinary language how learned patterns of responses to relating and thinking contribute to psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, phobia and relationship difficulty.

The book presents an easy-to-follow programme, showing readers how to identify their own different inner dialogues, and the traps, dilemmas, snags and unstable states of mind that lead to things going wrong. Incorporating the latest theories and developments in CAT practice, there are new case studies, as well as additional content on unmanageable feelings, eating disorders and stress. Wilde McCormick also addresses mindfulness-based psychotherapy, with exercises woven throughout the text to encourage self-reflection, helping the reader to achieve lasting change.

The strength of CAT is its integration of already well researched psychological theories and its creative and collaborative approach, commented Wilde McCormick. She continued,

CAT, through its use of shared written material, tailors the therapy to what the patient can use and this means that CAT can be offered in many different clinical settings. And with CAT specialists now working in several different countries, awareness and uptake of this fantastic approach is continuing to grow.

Wilde McCormicks approach is friendly and compassionate, making it an ideal introduction for therapists and clients, as well as students studying CAT and other psychotherapies. It is also recognised as a leading self-help text, guiding readers towards monitoring their own problems, and working through solutions that suit their individual needs. This edition looks to develop this personal approach even further, with Liz as therapist inviting the reader to imagine sitting with her whilst they explore their problems, in order to internalise an attentive listening relationship with themselves.

The value of all good therapies lies in a successful therapeutic relationship. This non-judgemental listening space can offer reparation and change as well as a creative dialogue. In the book the reader can gradually learn to engage with a reciprocal role of listening in relation to being listened to, which is important for making conscious change, added Wilde McCormick.
