Lau (University of British Columbia, Canada), Judy Proudfoot (University of New South Wales, Australia), Lee Ritterband (University of Virginia, USA), Chris Williams (University of Glasgow, UK), and Jim White (STEPS, UK).  As stated in the ‘product description’:  The Oxford Guide to Low Intensity CBT Interventions is a state-of-the-art handbook, providing low intensity practitioners, supervisors, managers commissioners of services and politicians with a practical, easy-to-read guide - indispensible reading for those who wish to understand and anticipate future directions in health service provision and to broaden access to cost-effective evidence-based psychological therapies.  As mentioned in an editorial review by Doody's Notes (heh – Doody), “This excellent book addresses an important new topic in a comprehensive manner...This is must reading for CBT practitioners.”  You can get it online either on Amazon or at the OUP site itsel.
