Read full description of the books:This is a great, and very practical, introduction to Cognitive Behavior Therapy, but one should make sure to get the latest edition (4th) rather than the earlier ones. The first four chapters covering the foundation of CBT are the same, but the newer editions also contain many more techniques, including some that are based on Buddhist meditation practices.
The key idea behind CBT is that "our thoughts cause our feelings" and most of the time our thoughts are generated automatically by our subconscious. The practices described in this CBT manual provide very effective ways of relating more thoughtfully to our subconscious in a way that allows it to be more accurately perceptive of our lives. I think of this as educating our intuition! Anyway, this book has some great ideas and most, if not all of them, have been validated as effective for the treatment of a wide variety of mood disorders from depression to anxiety, phobias to procrastination.
I'm telling all my friends and family to buy or borrow this book!
