"Imagery, long a staple of psychodynamic therapy, has re-emerged as a powerful and important technique in the therapeutic armamentarium in cognitive behavioral therapy. With this incisive and comprehensive clinical volume, one of the international experts on CBT, Tammie Ronen, has brought imagery front-and-center for the CBT therapist. The content, Ronen's clear writing style and presentation of the conceptual, strategic and technical work, are superb. The clinical perspectives and examples make this an essential guide for experienced and novice CBT therapists".
—Arthur Freeman, Director of Clinical Psychology, Midwestern University, USA
Tammie Ronen has written a remarkable book. She combines an intensely personal reflection on her own therapeutic practice with a scholarly review of a number of fields of enquiry, including positive psychology, creativity, and the issue of imagery and metaphor in therapy. She provides illuminating clinical examples throughout the book, and also suggestions for ways in which therapists can improve their practice. This is a fascinating book, which will be revisited again and again.
