Do you find yourself often feeling anxious, unmotivated, depressed, or negative about yourself? Is it so often that it is beginning to impact your day-to-day life? Have you wondered if your feelings are normal, but you feel too ashamed to ask those close to you about their own experiences, and you are unable or unwilling to speak to a therapist?

This is a great way to learn to deal with anxity.

I just started this workbook and it’s really helpful. It’s a great way to learn to cope and what reasons you might be having attacks. It’s definitely a good tool to use.

This cure!

This workbook is life changing. Granted, there is a lot of work you must put into it. I dedicated an hour everyday to doing the worksheets and reading the book, and it still took about a month to complete. Its like going through an intense 4-6 week CBT Therapy Bootcamp....but afterwards, the rewards and relief are priceless!

Best easy book so far.

It gets five stars because it is the best so far. I couldn't get through 'Feelin Good' which is the most recommended CBT workbook. CBT in 7 Weeks is short and to the point. The structure and speed of learning are where this book shines the most.My issues are with anxiety.My obsessive thinking is still there, but my anxiety has greatly reduced. Because my issues are with anxiety I can't speak to its efficacy on depression nor phobias.

Good self help book.

I really enjoyed the approach this book takes. It encourages you to go through slowly, one chapter per week, doing the exercises and really thinking about how you feel and why you feel that way.Take the time to review these notes as you progress through the book, you will learn a lot.

Good read.

I like the way this book is clear and concise, and to the point. I also appreciated the section on core beliefs as that is important and not always talked about.

Awesome book!

I haven't finished reading this book yet, but so far it is the best self-help book I have ever purchased. The information in it is completely practical and easy to understand. Everything is very well explained and presented. I think pretty much every person would benefit from reading this book whether they think they're depressed or not.

Pure genius!

I have read it at least six times. It remains one of the ten most impactful books I have ever read. The chapter on perfectionism helped me eliminate a dangerous habit. The list of cognitive distortions should be taught in schools.

Tremendous.

This is a tremendous volume of great information. I eagerly read it page after page, chapter after chapter. There is such good progress being made in the treatment of trauma and it is here to learn about. The brain changes and challenges of those who have experienced trauma is laid out to be easily understood as are the things that do work and why as well as the things that don't work (and why).

One of the foundational works.

For the most part, we usually see the red workbook more often than this original study. On top of that she considers the treatment, but also relooks some of the earlier - but still rampant - biases against people suffering from BPD. If you are working with BPD clients/patients, or doing research into aspects of BPD, this should be required reading.

Helpful,insightful read.

Very readable and I started treating myself right away after the first few chapters. I give myself more permission to turn negative experiences in my life into a positive power that helps me grow and see the good in all that happens to me. Seriously. But you need to want to be positive. Life is hard and I can see how some of us may not want to get over a passive negative.

Practicing.

In my humble opinion, It's a helpful book as long as you get into the discipline of following the exercises, and practice them, day by day.
