We would like to congratulate three of our ISST members, Gitta Jacob, Hannie van Genderen, and Laura Seebauer, on the upcoming English version publication of their book, Breaking Negative Thinking Patterns, due out on March 9, 2015 (Wiley-Blackwell). A description from the publisher follows:

Breaking Negative Thinking Patterns is the first schema-mode focused resource guide aimed at schema therapy patients and self-help readers seeking to understand and overcome negative patterns of thinking and behavior.

  • Represents the first resource for general readers on the mode approach to schema therapy
  • Features a wealth of case studies that serve to clarify schemas and modes and illustrate techniques for overcoming dysfunctional modes and behavior patterns
  • Offers a series of exercises that readers can immediately apply to real-world challenges and emotional problems as well as the complex difficulties typically tackled with schema therapy
  • Includes original illustrations that demonstrate the modes and approaches in action, alongwith 20 self-help mode materials which are also available online
  • Written by authors closely associated with the development of schema therapy and the schema mode approach

"The authors have distilled their extensive clinical experience as therapists, supervisors, trainers and researchers in Schema Therapy into a wonderfully clear and enlightening self-help guide. Their ability to explain and address complex issues in such a straightforward and compassionate manner means that this book will be invaluable for people struggling with ‘negative thinking patterns’, and a great inspiration for therapists looking to explain the concepts and ideas of schema therapy to others. Harnessing the use of mental imagery is a useful addition too to many standard texts. Super case examples and vivid images illustrate the concepts throughout."—Emily Holmes, MRC Cognition & Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge UK and Department for Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden 

"This book is an amazingly successful explanation of the essence of Schema Therapy. It is perfect for anyone interested in understanding what drives our emotional, thinking and behavioral patterns, and how those patterns can be changed. It is already a bestseller in the Netherlands and Germany and a great help to its readers, so it is fantastic that it is now available in English."—Arnoud Arntz, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
