Excerpt

When we began writing this book, we thought about “How do we begin?” As cognitive therapists, we found it natural to begin with a series of questions to introduce the purpose of the book, its content, and its format, as well as ourselves to you.

WHO ARE WE?

We are cognitive therapists at different stages in our careers. Robert Friedberg is a clinical psychologist who is in the middle stages of his career, while Jessica McClure is beginning her professional career. Dr. Friedberg has worked with children and their families in a variety of outpatient and inpatient settings. His work is fundamentally shaped by the writings of Aaron Beck and Martin Seligman, as well as by his mentors Christine Padesky and Raymond Fidaleo. Dr. McClure has had clinical experience with children and adolescents in a variety of settings, including inpatient psychiatric hospitals, pediatric medical centers, outpatient clinics, and innovative prevention programs.

We began writing this text together when Dr. McClure trained under Dr. Friedberg's supervision in the Preventing Anxiety and Depression in Youth program at Wright State University School of Professional Psychology. We thought that a book written by two psychologists at different points in their careers would speak to professionals with different levels of experience.
