The book describes how the Holistic Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (HCBT) model grew from patients bringing their spiritual beliefs and their socio-economic and cultural context into CBT sessions, factors sometimes missed in standard CBT. Holistic CBT is explained as a new strengths-based, solution-focused and creative model, exploring people’s identity and potential within their individual context, and recognising a body-mind-spirit link. The book sets out the process of this transpersonal, third wave CBT approach, recognising the importance of relating to different racial and cultural worldviews, and in particular, raising the profile of spirituality as an important aspect of people’s lives. An excellent reader for those looking to extend their therapeutic practice in mental health, community and faith settings. A companion course manual ‘Free to be Me’ by the same author provides guidance and resources for running HCBT sessions with individuals and groups.
