Review Quotes
"In these times of increasing longevity and increasing lifespan,Developmental Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Adults is a breath of fresh air with regard to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for middle-age and older age adults....Each chapter is packed with useful information that not only sets the required background for working with individuals across the life span but also indicates how these strategies can be invoked and employed. This is an excellent book that would make an excellent reference for those working with any segment of the developmental population from birth to later adulthood. This book is also appropriate for students with similar interests and could even serve as a graduate-level text. & Zarb has the necessary background (30+ years as a therapist) and that makes the book even more accessible and readable."- F. Richard Ferraro, in PsycCRITIQUES, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books

'There is enough Cognitive Therapy literature concerning clinical conditions, but little dealing with 'adult adjustment disorders'. The author has done a commendable job of presenting basic Cognitive Therapy and extending it into new territory. I consider this to be a very important book - for both counselors and therapists.' - Richard Wessler, Ph.D., Pace University, USA

Summaries
Main Description
Developmental Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Adultsoutlines a new cognitive approach that combines existing CBT theory and strategies with a lifespan developmental psychopathology perspective. The major focus is on the relationship between mastery of normative psycho-social developmental tasks and mental health. Primary targets for therapy are maladaptive developmental pathways that have significantly disrupted the client "s ability to cope with normal adult tasks and challenges. The book builds on standard cognitive therapy models and techniques, while providing further assessment and therapy strategies to address patterns interfering with resolution of normative adult tasks and roles. It introduces several new developmental assessment and therapy strategies, designed to address client difficulties with normal adult developmental tasks and to identify longstanding maladaptive pathways maintaining these difficulties. The book offers a variety of psycho-social developmental task difficulties in occupational, social, and family functioning. The clinical examples provide a deeper understanding of pathways to competence, as well as pathways to deviance, and the contrast between normal and atypical processes as they emerge at different developmental periods.
