Not a guide

First half is an overview of what cbt etc means and the history, second half explains a bit about what therapists do with them and mentions examples. There's a bit about what people can do but in summary this is just do mindfulness and set goals around your life principles.

Not helpful if you're looking to practice CBT

6 chapters in and nothing on how to actually practice CBT, if you want explanation and history then this is for you, if you want to practice CBT avoid

5 stars!

I think this book is great for anyone looking for extra support, motivation and guidelines in combating their mental health, and I would especially recommend it to anyone who is or enjoys more process-oriented change.

Hard going

The narration makes this book a really hard listen. It sounds robotic. Did not get what I hoped from it. Quite disappointed.

A bore, does not deliver on the title.

If you are buying this book to learn about CBT, DBT, or ACT, as you likely would be after reading the title, you will be sorely disappointed. Rather than then getting into the nitty-gritty on those forms of therapy, the first 4 hours (yes, FOUR hours!) of this book recount the history of psychiatry, stemming from the days of Freud, in painfully cursory detail, not at all helpful for someone who is actually looking for helpful behavioral therapy techniques. It's a lot like attending Psych 101 at a community college. Don't waste your dollars or your credit. You won't learn what you came for. Not to mention, the narrator is an utter bore. Sounds like Siri's more monotone uncle. Couldn't hold my attention one bit. I dozed off or my mind wandered throughout. I tuned in just often enough to be reminded that I wasn't receiving what I paid for. Don't waste your time.

Awesome Audio Book!

Great book for clinicians. Reviews the basics of CBT and discusses client conceptualization and interventions.

I really enjoyed the approach this book takes.

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.

Too Many Chapters Dedicated to the History

I eventually got bored after 7-8 chapters on the history of each one then in the following chapters they break down each one with specific types.

Good introduction to these techniques

Very good objective and overall summary. The reader is a little robotic, but otherwise eat to listen to
