A ground-breaking book that shows how coaches can harness ‘third wave’ CBT approaches such as ACT, DBT and CFT, as well as techniques drawn from mindfulness, neuroscience and motivational interviewing, to develop their practice in evidence-based, client-focused ways.
Coaching is an emerging discipline that is continually exploring new frontiers. An area of particularly fertile ground is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Developed from behavioural roots by integrating cognitive models of behaviour, and since developed in a range of directions to place increased value on individuals’ histories, emotions and potential, CBT offers a host of interrelated, evidence-based approaches that draw on psychology and our knowledge of the brain to help people cope with psychological challenges. Adapting cutting-edge psychological science to the needs of a coaching audience, Third Wave Cognitive Behavioural Coaching shows how, by drawing on techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy (ST) and more, coaches can adopt a more holistic approach that takes account of the problem, the context and the unique individual.
