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.
