Book Description

February 3, 2010 0195368894 978-0195368895 Workbook
Multiple Sclerosis presents not only physical challenges, but emotional challenges as well. Many people with MS suffer from depression, anxiety and stress. Problems with mood and stress can interfere with your relationships with others, reduce your ability to meet your obligations at work and at home, and substantially worsen your overall quality of life. If you have MS and are experiencing problems with mood and stress, this workbook can help.

The stress and mood management program described in this book is backed by research and has proven effective in clinical trials. Based on the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), one of the most effective therapeutic techniques available for combating depression and anxiety, this program can help you manage stress and improve your well-being. In Part I of the program, you will learn skills for identifying and challenging your unhelpful thoughts, as well as how to motivate yourself to reengage in pleasant activities. In Part II, you will choose those treatment modules that apply to you and your specific MS-related problems. Choices include modules on managing symptoms like fatigue, pain, and cognitive problems, and improving communication and assertiveness skills, among others. If you take injectable medications and have a fear of injecting yourself, the module on self-injection anxiety will also prove useful.

Complete with user-friendly forms and worksheets, this workbook provides all the materials you need to supplement treatment with a qualified mental health professional. If you are a highly motivated individual, you may have success using this book on your own. Whatever the setting, the stress and mood management program will give you the tools to handle the stresses of your disease and improve the overall quality of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY helpful August 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very helpful. It was very well laid out, and easy to follow. It certainly helped me to put a lot of things into prospective. I have struggled for years with management of stress. I know that stress makes my M.S. worse, yet I could never seem to stop letting the stress control my life. After using this workbook, I changed somethings about my ways of handling life. The book is correct when it states, "Treatments that work". Even though most of it is common sense, sometimes we need things written out for us. We need to see it in black and white, in order to start applying it. I would definitly recommend this book to anyone with M.S. or anyone who struggles with stress and anxiety. I keep this book handy, with all my tabs on the pages, and notes in the margins, to help me when I need it. I have noticed I need it less and less these days.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good manual for people who prefer manuals. November 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is systematic and covers many of the topics I have discussed with my patients with MS. This is its strength and its flaw. Because it attempts to be so systematic, it is somewhat rigid in its approach and for the many patients with MS who don't have these particular symptoms, it will not hit the target. It is a criticism I have of manualized treatment approaches in general, so if you like these approaches, then you can't go wrong with using this book for your patients with MS or for your own efforts. But if you are looking for a fuller grasp of what people with MS face and the complexity of their symptoms, this is probably not your best bet.
