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.

Overview

Quick, easy, and affordable read but only told symptoms and treatment that must be used with professional help. This book illuminates the diagnosis or at the very least helps a person understand, what's affecting them in psychological terms. No home remedy!!

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.

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.

Excellent coverage of CBT

Have you listened to any of Deborah Fennelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nothing to compare

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I was able to listen this in 3 sitting and I feel like I have some good ideas

Any additional comments?

In this book you will learn how to overcome depression, anxiety intrusive thoughts. What I like more about this book is, it is detailed, concise and well written; kudos to the author!
