Publisher's Summary

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Master your brain and emotions to overcome anxiety, depression, and negative thoughts.

Most of us are trapped in a roller-coaster of "automatic" thoughts, emotions, and actions. Try as hard as we might, when we see certain people or heard certain things, we get emotional. These intense emotions then trigger us to say certain things out of habit. We also often feel pushed to act a certain way. This all plays out so quickly we feel we really have no control about it. Very much like being on a roller coaster. Might as well just brace yourself for the ride, right? After all, it’s too easy to conclude that your "automatic" reactions of fear, anxiety, depression, or anger are simply part of "who you are as a person"!

Well, you don’t have to keep making the same wrong decisions over and over again. You don’t have to be miserable, powerless, or small. You don’t have to keep defining yourself as a person who doesn’t have much power over your life and your world. What if I told you that you can get off the careening roller coaster that is your life? What if you can put an end to negative emotional reactions that consistently and constantly put you in a bad spot?

The answer? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a one of the most respected, thoroughly tested, and vetted psychiatric counseling systems in existence. Countless people have been liberated from personal prisons of helplessness, powerlessness, failure, anxiety, depression, and compulsive behaviors. Best of all, CBT doesn’t necessarily involve mind altering medication, hypnosis, or electro shock therapy. Instead, CBT works with a very basic premise: Whatever negative thoughts, psychology, verbal and habitual behavioral patterns you have are products of how you choose to interpret situations. These interpretations, in turn, are products of certain "truths" you choose to believe.

CBT zeroes in on the central fact that you have a lot of choice in how your life plays out. By simply choosing to think in a different way and interpret certain experiences differently, you can produce a massive positive change in your life. You no longer have to feel like certain negative mental and emotional states are natural and "automatic" responses to certain triggers in your life.

This workbook teaches you key Cognitive Behavioral Therapy principles that will enable you to become a happier, more fulfilled, more effective, and more content person. Stop thinking that your world is spiraling out of control or you don’t have control over your life. This guide teaches simple clear techniques that will enable you to start living life to the fullest.

10 out of 10

If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. It is very readable and makes so much sense to me. I hope I don't sound dramatic, but this book changed my life. The authors are well versed on the subject and are able to explain CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to us newbies. I'm actually studying Clinical Psychology and I feel that this book has not only helped me, but it will help me to help my clients when I get to work in a few years.

it's all in your head

Started the book and it repeatedly tells you that all your problems are just in your head and that you're not a victim. Didn't get to a part where it explains any exercises to practice.

Very interesting topic about CBT

I really like this book and the suggestions it gives in helping you to change your mindset.A must listen for anxiety reduction. The author hits it on the head in a simple to read and understand way.I found this book truly inspiring and helpful. The idea behind CBT is that you can change your thoughts and therefore improve your reaction to emotions that you cannot change in situations, helping you with anxiety, stress, and depression to name a few.

For younger people

A lot of this information in this book seems to be for millennials and younger people .
The book talks about participation ribbons and the world revolving around the listener.
I didn't grow up this way, a bit of this info is okay but the majority of it just isn't for this 49 year old, meh

Life changing!

After just 4 chapters I found myself making connections that I don’t believe I ever have before, and I was laughing at myself for the simplicity of it. Going back for another listen back to back. Sometimes it just takes a different approach and this book was to the point and very easy to grasp the concept of CBT. Thank you so much to the author Bill Andrews for this amazing text.

 This book is designed for a person with basic knowledge of cognitive-behavioral therapy who want to increase or establish their skills. Even if you don’t actively implement the techniques you will still take something meaningful from the listening experience. This is a great book for learning about CBT. Whether you are a student of psychology or someone looking into treatment programs there is a lot to learn. The simple steps provided in this book can begin to help understand and work through various anxieties and depressions on many levels.

start focusing on the positive things

Listening to it will rapidly give you a complete understanding of what causes anxiety and depression, as well as how you can practice CBT to defeat these very serious mental illnesses. It is mesmerizing to have a very basic understanding of how the brain reacts to different stimuli and how this can be applied to real-life situations to help people address issues with. there are ideas on how to change a negative thought into positive ones. If you can learn how to release the negativity and start focusing on the positive things in life, this therapy will work well for you. I think it is a great self-help tool and can be used by everyone to evaluate their beliefs and perceptions of the world around them and how they interact with it. A good guide for anyone seeking an approach to mindfulness and positive thinking.

I found this book truly inspiring and helpful.

If you seek gentle guidance regarding depression, anxiety, or intrusive thoughts that provides information and choices then this book is for you. Found it as one of the best reference books that guide therapists who are interested in using CBT in their sessions.  It definitely helped me not only get better control of my anxiety but helped me to understand where it was coming from. Really I am very happy with this book. This book contains heaps of accommodating data that are truly taken by surprise. It's a great example of how to articulate a formulation that becomes a roadmap for rational and effective intervention. This book is designed for clinicians with basic knowledge in cognitive-behavioral therapy who want to increase or establish their skills and creating a series of specific interventions with numerous case examples. This book is exceptionally useful and educational for me. So, I highly recommend this great guide book.

I actually want my family and friends to have this book also for them to understand and have knowledge on how to overcome anxiety and depression. This is a very informative book to know everything about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It does a pretty good job, presenting the tools of cognitive-behavioral therapy is very simple and effective ways, and backed up with plenty of exercises and hands-on activities so you can put the lessons into practice. This book seems to be filled with lots of great, useful information. It contains a complete plan for freeing yourself from social anxiety.

A great reference

It was an amazing journey and although I have always been quite interested in psychology and learned about the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, listening to this book and seeing living proof for the effectiveness was just so good. The purpose of therapy is to equip clients with applicable tools and interventions that they can put into practice. A great reference for those who simply want to change something about themselves - shyness, insecurity, any behavior that holds you back - it is much easier and more personal than counseling. A very informative course that introduces you to many tools available in books and ideas to improve my treatments across the many conditions I come across. If you're just looking to dip your toe into CBT, this would be a book to try.  I would prescribe this book to anybody battling with any of these or basically might want to know more on conduct treatment.
