James Bennett-Levy


James Bennett-LevyThere are various strings to James’ bow. He has co-authored 4 leading CBT textbooks, including the classic Oxford Guide to Behavioural Experiments in Cognitive Therapy (2004) and the Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy (2011).

He is Guilford Press’ series editor for their Self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR) series, which includes his latest book, Experiencing CBT from the Inside Out: A Self-Practice/Self-Reflection Workbook for Therapists (2015), and a forthcoming book, Experiencing Compassion-focused Therapy from the Inside Out.

And James is also one of the world’s leading researchers on therapist training with 35 training publications; in particularly his evidence-based self-experiential approach to therapist training (SP/SR) has led to invited workshops in 21 countries. His twin enthusiasms for contemporary approaches to CBT and compassion-focused training are represented by his 2017 workshops, in which therapists have the opportunity to ‘really get it from the inside out’.
