Basic introduction to cognitive therapy and psychopathology

Aaron T. Beck explains in simple language the emotional disorders: anxiety, depression, phobias, mania, obsessions and compulsions... It describes both theories and specific strategies to cope with each disorder. The last chapter of the book is a comparison between cognitive therapy, psychoanalysis and behavioral therapy.
