Change How You Feel by Changing the Way You Think
En lättläst, pedagogisk och strukturerad bok. Med denna boka kan jag antingen själv eller tillsammans med en terapeut arbeta med depression och andra olika ångestproblematik som t ex panikångest, generaliserad ångest, olika fobier. Författarna lär ut olika vanliga interventioner inom traditionell KBT. Det som särskiljer boken lite från andra traditionella KBT-självhjälpsböcker är att författarna tar upp ett längre avsnitt om hur vi kan arbeta med tacksamhet mot oss själva och andra. Här finns...

"Only rarely does a book come along that can truly change your life. Mind Over Mood is such a book. Dennis Greenberger and Christine A. Padesky have distilled the wisdom and science of psychotherapy and written an easily understandable manual for change."--from the Foreword by Aaron T. Beck, MD, developer of cognitive therapy "Based on over 40 years of front-line research, this renowned book provides clinically proven strategies to help you manage your mind and the emotions that can so easily destroy your quality of life. Drs. Greenberger and Padesky show how your thoughts affect your feelings and teach step-by-step skills so you can free yourself from painful moods. The first edition of this book was a classic--the second edition is even better, and will be a trusted guide for even more people across the globe."--Mark Williams, DPhil, coauthor of The Mindful Way Workbook "Over a million people have used Mind Over Mood to alleviate--and in many cases eliminate--the suffering caused by depression and other psychological problems. Drs. Greenberger and Padesky are brilliant therapists whose thoroughly updated second edition is informed by the latest research and therapeutic innovations. Science has demonstrated incontrovertibly that changing the way we think about emotional situations is among the most powerful ways to change emotions themselves. Everyone struggling with challenging moods or emotions should read this book."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, coauthor of 10 Steps to Mastering Stress "True to its title, this book really can help you transform your thinking so you can make lasting changes."--Judith S. Beck, PhD, President, Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy -Mind Over Mood provides effective cognitive techniques for patients to develop a more balanced view of themselves, to challenge the automatic thoughts, assumptions, and core beliefs they dearly hold.Mind Over Mood; has many great features, including: (1) clear organization and structure, (2) readability, (3) analogies to supplement explanations(4) summaries, helpful hints, questions, worksheets, and exercises that reinforce learning for patients, (5) excellent chapters on specific problems(6) helpful sections on mindfulness, assertiveness, gratitude, forgiveness, and positive psychology.For physicians like me who are looking for ways to prevent burnout in these chaotic times in medicine, the greatest benefit I had reading and underlining the pages in this book was what I learned about my own cognitive distortions, assumptions, and biases. I gained a renewed sense of self, one that is mentally and emotionally more flexible to challenge core assumptions and beliefs about myself, spouse, patients, colleagues, and friends--and electronic health record administrators!--Family Medicine, 2/1/2017The book divides the techniques into small chunks accompanied by clear explanations. A therapist or school social worker could also use this format to teach a student or client about the way they think or to use self-talk. Later chapters guide the reader to challenge or create alternative healthier thoughts. The authors also tackle previously held assumptions and how these can negatively affect our core beliefs. The explanations are helpful because the reader can learn why the strategies can work.I can appreciate how the reproducible worksheets could be used for data collection to measure goals with students as well as to teach coping mechanisms that students can use when out of the social work office. The practical CBT techniques make a lot of sense in a school setting, and the empowerment the school social worker can provide to students when they find they can continue to help themselves would be a win-win.--School Social Work Journal, 9/1/2016_x000D_How refreshing it is to find a book which soars above the rest and systematically engages the reader to make real and long-lasting change.A workbook tha
