Publisher's Summary

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental illnesses in the world. Often they go hand in hand with each other, and unfortunately for thousands of people these serious mental health concerns go untreated. Perhaps you or a loved one suffers from anxiety or depression. I want you to know that there is help out there, and that no matter how bad things may seem, tomorrow holds a brighter day, with solutions that you might not see right now.
Anxiety and depression have been a major component of my life for over 30 years. I have been an avid follower of the medical community, and watching the perspective change on depression and anxiety has been fascinating. Today, one of the leading methods for treating anxiety and depression rests with cognitive behavioral therapy. It is my goal over the course of this book to educate you about the core causes of depression and anxiety and to provide advice and help for everyday things that you can do to minimize the negative effects of these mental health conditions.
My experience in the field of behavioral health is practical and comes with years of research, both introspective and academic. I want to provide you with a toolbox to treat anxiety and depression and to understand part of the root cause. Start listening, and soon your anxiety and depression will be put into perspective; you will have a theory of the root cause of depression and anxiety in the modern age, and you will have a set of strategies to help you cope. There's no reason to let anxiety and depression take hold in your life; start listening, and you, too, can break the grip of these serious mental health conditions.

This isn't CBT. I'm sure the author meant well, but telling people who are suffering from depression and/or anxiety that they should just, "Make lists! Eat right! Exercise! Yeah, it's hard, but it's worth it!" is so condescending and absolutely not helpful. Worse, he advises turning to comfort food to feel better. I've read other books (such as The Feeling Good Handbook) on CBT and they cover in-depth guidance on analyzing the twisted thoughts that lead to our emotions and how to change your thinking. I was hoping for something like that in audio format and am very disappointed in this book.

Helpful Advice!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to be better than the print version?

i love the both version both where good...
One of the solutions that the book proposes is the simple, but powerful act of recording your own thoughts. If you boil it down, it's basically 'journal-ing' your thoughts.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

I'm a big believer in using this method as a way to gain clarity and help you emotionally de-tach from what's going on in your mind. It has helped me on many occasions to put things back into perspective, when I "feel" like I'm losing control of what's going on in my life.

What about Miguel Rodriguez’s performance did you like?

amazing performance i really like his performance Miguel Rodriguez..

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

i heard it by one sitting..

Any additional comments?

There are others that the book suggests that are also worth trying. Find one that works for you, and stick with it until it becomes a habit.
