  2. Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy

    NEW Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy presents a model that, although still inherently Beckian, organizes known cognitive and behavioral techniques in a step-by-step fashion in order to make cognitive therapy easier for the new therapist to learn, easier for patients to understand, and simpler to implement. Based on and backed up by a series of published studies, Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy lays out structured strategies for changing core beliefs about the self, and its clear, coherent, integrative conceptualization of psychopathology is presented as an easy-to-remember case-formulation model that is useful for both the therapist and the client.

  4. New: The Adult ADHD Tool Kit

    "In over 35 years of treating adults with ADHD, I have never come across a better resource than Ramsay and Rostain’s The Adult ADHD Tool Kit. After an excellent presentation of foundational processes such as planning, time management, procrastination, motivation, organization, and challenging distorted beliefs, they creatively apply these techniques to coping in college, the workplace, relationships, and health. They also address the excessive use of technology and the role of medication for treating adult ADHD. Adults with ADHD and the professionals treating them will benefit greatly from Drs. Ramsay and Rostain’s wisdom. Don’t leave home without this tool kit."
