Publisher's Summary

Are you consistently plagued with feelings of Anxiety or Depression?

Almost every person will suffer from issues relating to negative thinking patterns at some stage in their life, it's unavoidable. Whether it's facing phobias, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, or full-scale anxiety or depression. It's much more prevalent than you think. But most people aren't equipped with the right mental tools to identify the underlying reasons for their problems, or spot the triggers which set them off.

This is where Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help. Since its discovery in the 1960's, CBT has proved to be one of, if not the most beneficial and effective modes of therapy for treating all human mental disturbances.

Katherine Chambers is an ex-Stanford Psychologist who specializes in all forms neuroscientific and psychotherapy subjects. However it wasn't until she left college life and entered the "real world" did she start to understand these theoretical topics in a practical sense. This has included intense scrutiny of CBT methods.

In this insightful and functional book, Chambers gives listeners a comprehensive overview of the specific CBT principles and treatment techniques available today, including:

  • What actually is CBT and what can it treat?
  • Understanding anxiety and depression
  • Identifying thought patterns and why it's so important to break the negative cycles
  • How to spot and address maladaptive coping mechanisms
  • Multimodel ModeI personality approach explained
  • Reprocessing and EMDR techniques for post-traumatic stress
  • Dialectical Therapy for high risk cases
  • ...and much more.

A Psychologist's Guide to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is designed to give listeners an overall outlook on the CBT principles available today.

Nice summary of CBT

It is very readable and easy to follow. The author did a good job of presenting what CBT is and how to apply it with a step by step tutorial in various situations. This book will help as both a self-help book and an educational material for therapists.

Great book. Highly recommended.

Not as advertised

This book is only two hours long which could have been worth the money had it really been a two hour book on CBT; however, this book is an overview of many different therapies. Could get the same info on Wikipedia. Waste of time.

Any additional comments?

Very pleased with this purchase! I haven't been able to go to a therapist in quite some time but I've already received more from this book in two weeks than I have from probably ALL of my past therapists combined. Well, one specific therapist excluded, but he was amazing! (DBT therapist)

This book life-changing.

As someone who has benefitted from CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), I highly recommend this book - and wish it had been written years ago! I come from a family with a history of anxiety and depression, and was both told - and believed - I would be plagued by this history for most if not all of my life. However, through the use of CBT, I was able to work through crippling anxiety and almost daily panic attacks to a place where I have been free of these chronic experiences for years. And, as someone who uses both "self-help" approaches in addition to a relationship with a therapist, I think anyone seeking healing, breakthrough, and full recovery will find this book life-changing.

Such a very insightful read!

Such a very insightful read! I never thought that it's possible to improve emotional intelligence. Personally, I do appreciate what I've learned from this book most especially on how not to be judgmental towards other people. Such a very informative guide that I can also use personally.

The book is worthy of attention! I highly recommend this book to all.

Good basic introduction to CBT

I'm a therapist and use CBT on a daily basis. I always look to refresh my learning and sometimes like to go back to review the basics. I was able to listen to this for free with a promotional offer and did not expect much, but I really enjoyed how practical and to the point this short book is. Definitely worth it.
