Cognitive behavioral therapies are well supported by evidence-based research. But what happens when they run into the real world of agency bureaucracies, budgets, and difficult clients?

Graduate Psychology, James Madison University
Written by two of the most respected leaders in
the application of cognitive behavioral therapies in justice-involved
settings, this new resource helps practitioners translate the major themes
and principles of cognitive behavioral interventions into the real world of
agency hierarchies, priorities, and available resources—and the hard-to-reach clients
often encountered in justice- and school-based settings. Drawing on their
five combined decades of experience in CBI program development, Barry Glick and Reginald Prince give
practitioners field-proven tactics and strategies they can add to their
existing diagnostic and counseling skill sets. Readers will get concrete,
practical guidance on how to deliver CBI programs for a broad range of

"With the clarity that one associates with the previous work by these authors, Glick and Prince have provided a definitive volume for those of us charged with implementing the evidence-based treatment known as cognitive behavioral treatment. In my particular specialty of sex offender treatment, almost all programs describe themselves as using a CBT approach and yet the programs vary tremendously and war with each other over what exactly is this method. This work addresses many of the issues associated with these discussions. What I most admire in this work is that it is obviously written by practitioners who are familiar with the very practical considerations faced by clinicians and administrators. This is a must read for anyone interested in establishing a CBT program with a variety of population or in updating or refining their current program."
—Barbara K. Schwartz, Ph.D., Program Director, The R.U.L.E. Program, Editor, The Sex Offender: Corrections, Treatment and Legal Practice
"In this remarkably accessible and authoritative volume, Glick and Prince commendably achieve three interrelated goals: (1) documenting the historical and contemporary sweep of cognitive behavioral theories and interventions; (2) describing how to develop, implement, and evaluate ecologically valid programs with a very wide array of populations and presentations; and (3) providing a compelling rationale for why such interventions matter for real people in the real world who are grappling with some of the most vexing challenges humans face. Most important and appealing, the authors adopt a refreshingly pragmatic and ecumenical stance toward the many models and methods they illuminate, which makes Implementing Successful Cognitive Behavioral Interventions a must read not only for CBT aficionados, but for any mental health practitioner of whatever theoretical bent who rightly aspires to be and become a master clinician."
