9781572240933: Thoughts and Feelings: Taking Control of Your Moods and Your Life

Many therapists believe that out-of-control thoughts and behaviors cause most mental disorders. The method of psychotherapy created to directly address these unruly patterns of thinking and reinforcing behavior is called cognitive behavioral therapy. It is a highly focused, highly effective system of treatment that can produce lasting change in a very short period of time. This is amongst the most complete and useful guides to cognitive-behavioral techniques ever written. It applies these techniques to an extremely wide range of symptoms and disorders. The book includes step-by-step protocols for treating problems ranging from depression and panic disorder to obsessional thinking and anger control.

Review:

Chock full of systematic strategies for the treatment of a wide variety of psychological problems. Eminently readable and helpful for professionals as well as patients. --Aaron T. Beck, MD, president of the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research Psychopathology An outstanding book. I recommend it without reservation for both general readers and therapists. It stands apart from other similar books in its reliance on scientific data, not fad, hype, or mysticism. --Jacqueline B. Persons, Ph.D., director of the San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy and associate clinical professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, BerkeleyAn excellent resource, reference tool, treatment manual, therapy coach, and compendium of techniques. --Arthur Freeman, Ed.D., ABPP, HSPP, president of the Freeman Institute for Cognitive Therapy and director of clinical training and supervision for the Center for Brief Therapy, PC, in Fort Wayne, IN, and chair emeritus and professor of psychology at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic MedicineOne of the most comprehensive and empirically sound guidebooks in all of self-help literature. All of the major problems in living are covered. --Cory F. Newman, Ph.D., clinical director of the Center for Cognitive Therapy and associate professor of psychology in psychiatry at the University of PennsylvaniaFor professionals and the public, this wonderful workbook, like a wise teacher, can help make a positive difference. --Thomas F. Cash, Ph.D.A jewel of a book: supportive and empathetic, short on platitudes and long on practical applications. A must-buy for all cognitive-behavioral therapists. --Thomas E. Ellis, Psy.D., ABPP, professor of psychology at Marshall University in Huntington, WV
