Default New editions of two classics

Two classic CT texts have recently been published in second editions:

Clinical Applications of Cognitive Therapy, Second Edition (Freeman, Pretzer, Fleming, & Simon, 2004) updates a text that provides a thorough introduction to the practice of CT. The original edition (1990) covered the principles of CT and their application to the treatment of depression and suicidality, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. The second edition updates this material and adds chapters on treating substance abuse, children and adolescents, couples, and CT in groups. It is designed to be appropriate both for readers who are new to CT and for readers who are familiar with CT of depression.

Cognitive Therapy of Personality Disorders, Second Edition (Beck, et al, 2004) updates a text that provides detailed coverage of CT with personality disorders (it presumes that readers already are familiar with CT for Axis I problems). It includes a summary of recent empirical support for CT with personality disorders.

I may be biased (I'm a co-author of both) but I think they came out quite well.
