Let's say that I'm completely green about psychology and CBT (like I really know nothing, apart from that CBT exists). Is there a good introduction/ seminal work, but with relatively low barrier of entry and not too massive (something that could be learned/ studied in several evenings)?

I'm aware of this question, but what I'm looking for specifically is a book or a more involved/ in-depth resource.

I think that you should look at one of the more well rated books on CBT.

Aaron beck is the father of CBT so maybe start with his book if you can't make a decision.

  • $\begingroup$ I'll maybe try to be a bit more specific: I'm not trying to help myself, and most of top-rated CBT books you've linked to are self-help -- my interest is CBT is more academic than clinical as well, so step-by-step clinical programs are of no interest to me either. The suggestion of trying out Aaron Beck is probably more relevant. $\endgroup$ – Adam Kurkiewicz Nov 14 '15 at 1:03
  • $\begingroup$ For a thorough understanding I would have a look at the Handbook of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies amazon.com/… $\endgroup$ – Peter Slattery Nov 14 '15 at 23:58
  • $\begingroup$ Or for a quick overview have a look at chapter 8 in volume 8 of the Handbook of Psychology au.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470917997.html $\endgroup$ – Peter Slattery Nov 14 '15 at 23:59
