Book News Annotation:

Gaus, a practicing cognitive-behavioral therapist, describes strategies for managing depression, anxiety, and other comorbidities frequently found in adults with Asperger syndrome (AS). She begins by describing AS and its manifestation in adulthood, using clinical examples to illustrate challenges that patients face in everyday life, relationships, and the workplace. She then outlines a rationale for using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with AS, and gives guidelines and instructions for assessment, treatment planning, and using CBT techniques to help patients improve social functioning and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. A comprehensive resource section lists professional overviews, therapy tools and workbooks, autobiographical and self-help books by authors on the autistic spectrum, education and advocacy web sites, and publishers that focus on autism-spectrum topics.

The author presents a cogent rationale for cognitive-behavioral intervention and offers clear guidelines for conducting assessments and designing and implementing individualized treatment plans. Throughout, the emphasis is on helping people with AS decrease distress while preserving and building on their unique strengths. Special features include a case formulation worksheet and other helpful reproducibles.
