Editorial Reviews

Review

“Addis and Martell are on the cutting edge of research on psychological treatments for depression. Now they have adapted one of the most powerful new psychological treatments for depression into an easy-to-use and convenient workbook that will be of enormous benefit to both individuals suffering from depression and therapists conducting treatment. The authors are the first to make this program generally available to clinicians and the public and, in its straightforward easy to understand format, millions of people should benefit.”
—David H. Barlow, Ph.D., professor of psychology and director of clinical programs at Boston University

From the Publisher

Behavioral activation-a fast-acting, effective therapy for overcoming depression-focuses on reengaging with life; for the first time, this book brings these powerful techniques directly to the self-help reader.

The ideas about depression are different than your typical self-help book and I found them very powerful in helping me to feel better.

It requires some work - record keeping is key - but it really helped me become productive.

Medication and therapy got me less depressed, but I still couldn't get anything done. This book was essential to get me moving again. It requires some work - record keeping is key - but it really helped me become productive. And that was key to improving my self-esteem.

This book and the exercises it offers may be the most effective way out of depression that I know. I am a therapist in a hospital and I work with people who have been truly overwhelmed by life and whose depression has come to dominate their world. This workbook gives a path out of the cycle of behavior and thinking that keep depressed individuals stuck. When I share the simple perspective that this book offers, my patients are so grateful to understand their depression and to get a sense that there is a manageable set of skills that they can use to make a positive impact on their lives.

I found this workbook extremely helpful. It's very straightforward. The ideas about depression are different than your typical self-help book and I found them very powerful in helping me to feel better. The fact that this new approach is based in solid research is one reason for its effectiveness. The other is the authors' knowledgeable guidance through the process.

Format: Paperback
I've found this workbook absolutely fantastic. It's written in plain English, is easy to follow, and makes real sense. Has helped me realise just how unhelpful some of the things I was doing really were, and given me a new perspective on depression and how to overcome it. Much more practically helpful than other workbooks I have looked at!

I had to write a review for this book to encourage others to give it a try. I have ordered other depression workbooks and for me this one is the most effective. Why? Because the steps you have to take aren't buried in a lot of fluff and filler, and they are very clear and actionable. It helped me to get out of my depressed state and I find myself going back to these techniques with success whenever I feel my mood starting to go down again. A definite keeper. I only wish it was available in a Kindle version, too!

The book is very well written, very friendly and practical. Behavioural patterns are well explained one I had no difficulty applying different techniques. I think it is good for professionals as well.
