James Bennett Levy

James Bennett-Levy is Professor in Mental Health at the University of Sydney, Australia. He was previously with Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (UK) between 2002-2008. He is a highly published researcher in the field of therapist training, and an in-demand trainer who has trained over 8000 therapists in 21 countries. His pioneering self-experiential approach to CBT training, known as self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR), has become increasingly influential internationally. This work is encapsulated in his recent book, Experiencing CBT from the Inside Out: A Self-Practice/Self-Reflection Workbook for Therapists (Bennett-Levy, Thwaites, Haarhoff & Perry, 2015, Guilford Press). He has also developed a widely cited model of therapist skill development known as the Declarative-Procedural-Reflective (DPR) model. James has co-written/co-edited three other books for clinicians: the Oxford Guide to Behavioural Experiments in Cognitive Therapy (2004), the Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy (2011), and the Oxford Guide to Low Intensity CBT Interventions (2010). Currently, he is co-writing another self-practice/self-reflection workbook for therapists, Experiencing Compassion-Focused Therapy from the Inside Out (Kolts, Irons, Bell & Bennett-Levy, in preparation).
