"The second edition of this classic book will be invaluable to clinicians working with adults on the spectrum. It provides a treasure trove of materials to learn from and use in clinical practice. Gaus does a truly fantastic job of integrating research with a patient-centered approach to skill building. The new coverage of 'third-wave' CBT approaches is extremely helpful."--Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

"CBT has long been a preferred therapy for adults on the spectrum--unlike some other approaches, CBT is respectful of who we (spectrumfolk) are as people. In this second edition, Gaus updates her wonderful book with important new knowledge. This book is a manual for success for any clinician who works with spectrum adults."--Michael John Carley, Founder, GRASP (Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership); school consultant; author of Asperger's from the Inside Out

"Any clinician who treats adults for anxiety and mood disorders should read this book. It helps us identify individuals with ASD and provide them with skillful care that is responsive to their unique information-processing styles. Students, trainees, and clinicians at all levels of experience can learn from this valuable volume. Gaus has a deep understanding of individuals with ASD. And she's an excellent teacher, providing clear explanations illustrated with examples drawn from her rich clinical experience."--Jacqueline B. Persons, PhD, Director, Oakland Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center

"This is the comprehensive and essential guide to understanding and treating this underserved population. Drawing on empirical literature as well as decades of clinical experience, Gaus shares a vast wealth of knowledge, and her compassion for the struggles of clients with ASD is palpable. Gaus shows clinicians how to incorporate treatment components specific to ASD while developing individualized case formulations and using well-established CBT interventions. Her multiple case examples are spot-on and offer concrete, practical clinical guidance. This book is well organized, user friendly, and easy to follow. Since clients seek help for an array of clinical concerns, ASD-related problems may not be immediately evident, making the book highly relevant for all clinicians and trainees."--Joan Davidson, PhD, Co-Director, San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy; Assistant Clinical Professor, University of California, Berkeley
