Publisher's Summary

If you suffer from anxiety, depression, addictions, and other problematic disorders, you can treat and overcome them with cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a psychotherapeutic approach that addresses dysfunctional emotions, maladaptive behaviors, and cognitive processes and contents through a number of goal-oriented, explicit systematic procedures. Cognitive behavioral therapy addresses negative patterns and distortions in the way we look at the world and ourselves. It involves two main components. The first component is cognitive therapy, which examines how negative thoughts, or cognitions, contribute to anxiety, depression, addictions, and other problematic disorders, and the second component is behavior therapy which examines how you behave and react in situations that trigger these disorders or conditions. In his book entitled Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, author Lance Pettiford shows you how to effectively use cognitive behavioral therapy to treat any problematic disorder you may suffer from.
You will learn:



Exactly what cognitive behavioral therapy is, how it was developed, and what the general process involves.
The specific techniques that cognitive behavioral therapy uses to treat problematic disorders, including: cognitive processing therapy, exposure therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive therapy, relaxation training, and dialectical behavior therapy.
The cognitive distortions that are involved in the negative thought processes and how to identify them.
How to conduct your own mental health assessment so that you can better understand exactly what is wrong and what needs to be fixed.
And much, much more....

Very quick overview of (CBT)

Very quick overview of (CBT). It's more of an explanation of (CBT). Not good if you're looking for a self help book.

Really nice, but really short

It's only an hour long, but within the hour the narrator covers all the basics about each problem, symptoms, the causes, exercises for how to deal with each problem.
Overall, I liked it, but it was just surprisingly short.
