    I highly recommend this book to anyone curious about or taking part in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT CBT is used to help people cope with issues such as depression anxiety anger low self esteem panic attacks and so on CBT helps us understand how our core beliefs thoughts emotions and behaviour are all intertwined CBT then helps us correct any flawed beliefs or thoughts that are causing us to act or react in any way that isn't helpful healthy or functional This book carefully explains the value of thought records what they are and how to create them Thought records help us to connect our reactions and emotions to our core beliefs and thoughts By doing so we can trace back why it is we react the way we do and then consider an alternative healthier beliefthought This book explains this process very clearly and very well

    There's the book and then there's the approach The approach is explained well the book doesn't distract from that Some repetition but that's important too For me this is a good starting point I'll definitely try to photocopy the sheets so I have many on hand The Reviewers on Goodreads seem to be either users of the book or perscribers of the book I was hoping for some meaty theoretical info but apparently cognitive therapy is as straightforward as can beThe techniues I feel would complement very well a meditation course when all's said and done this is basically what you're doing watching a thought trigger an emotion then giving yourself some space to evaluate its causal attributions before letting the effects grip you and steer you down a path you don't want Eventually you're able to replacey our automatic errant thoughts with a balanced version that leavens the bulk with a handful of potential positive theories for what just happened and so takes some of the bitter flavor away recognizing both rather than only the positive or only the negative Repeat until it becomes second nature and voila mind over mood

    I've been working with this book for a few months now and it's completely changed my mood my thoughts and helped me deal with issues correctly rather than how I was previously dealing with things This book is a MUST for someone who is having problems coping with things when they go wrong It's a perfect book for rehabilitation of the mind

    This is the first book I recommend to people who –for whatever reason– can’t get help for their mental disorders since this is what my two CBT groups followed when I was in for depression and later bipolar disorder And it worked for the most part It’s circumstantial so I’ll elaborate furtherThis book is covers a lot of mood disorders and gives you the tools to manage imbalanced thoughts The trick is putting the effort into it I find this method helps better in short term because the steps can be forgotten over time and are easy to discard when you aren’t in a clear frame of mind It also works better for emotions triggered by situations; when you don’t know what it upsetting you it’s difficult to follow the process That being said it still can help ease problems that arise afterwards but it’s not a magical cure It’s a tool that won’t always work but when it does it’s a saviorTo get personal I have noticed some lasting differences I’m not free of depression bipolar but I used to be self conscious and now I’m not as harsh on myself For that I’m gratefulSo all in all the tools included are helpful when it can be applied It allows you to be able to help yourself and that independence can be nice

    I suffer from anxiety This book was recently recommended to me by my regular family doctor to see if I could change my negative thoughts into positive ones I don't feel any different now that I've read it These are the things I will remember Whenever you experience a mood there is a thought connected to it which defines the mood seems simple enough but for some reason I'd never thought of it that wayNegative thinking about the world is a style of thinking in which we notice and remember negative aspects of our experiences vividly than positive or neutral eventsA child begins to develop and use language to make sense of experiences at the ages of 2 and 3 That knowledge will guide their behavior For example they will think Dogs bite or Dogs are friendly Because core beliefs help us make sense of our world at such a young age it may never occur to us to evaluate them as an adult

    I have found this book truly beneficial to improving my mental health I have always had an interest in psychology and a believer of cognitive behavioral therapy The way the book is written is easy for anyone to understand The exercises are well explained and really help you to dive deep into the reasons why you may be feeling or acting a certain way The skills you develop through this workbook will be beneficial to my life as well as those around me as I have become emotionally aware This book would be beneficial to anyone suffering from mood disorders such as depression anxiety anger guilt etc or if someone is simply wanting to learn how to grow as a person and improve their own understanding of themselves

    Whether or not you are interested in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy this is a great book for therapists and general public to deepen their insight into the connections between thoughts feelings and behaviour Calling it a self help book doesn’t do its justice It is a exploratory manual to help deal with depression anxiety anger guilt and shame using simple but effective worksheets and strategies It is something that you can use on your own or alongside a therapist that does empower to resolve challenging emotional states with the power of cognition As a mental health professional I absolutely recommend this book to everyone who is willing to change the way they live their lives
