"This is an excellent pair of books in what I imagine, given Barlow's expertise, experience, and track record, will be a very good series. The pairing of a therapist guide and companion workbook sets the series apart from previous texts that have provided either practitioner guidebooks or self-help manuals."--PsycCRITIQUES "The Therapist Guide is a good, well-written accompaniment to the wrokbook, providing the therapist with the latest research and treatment rationale to help develop effective treatment plans for individuals wishing to overcome their specific phobias."--CBT Today "The book covers a wide spectrum of fears and phobias, and are grouped in a way that reflects the heterogeneity among specific phobias... Both the Therapist Guide and the accompanying Client Workbook are user-friendly in terms of layout and comprehensibility of content. Time is taken to introduce the evidence-base for the efficacy of cognitive behaviour techniques in the treatment of fears and phobias; this supplies the therapist with knowledge and confidence in this form of treatment."--Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London "
