I'm sorry to hear it didn't work for some of the reviewers. I hope they found better resources and will share with us.
Most of the time, it doesn't even manage that. Hilariously worst example: the old "endorphin from exercise will make you feel better" advice is followed by suggesting, among other things, rollerblading and skipping with jump ropes. I think my obstetrician would have something to say about that. It's just plain sloppy.
Another example: for panic attacks, it follows the tired old "write down the worst thing you fear will happen" chestnut, but the worst example they can think of is every-CBT-book-uses "people will see me hyperventilating." That's not even trying. As a pregnant woman with an anxiety disorder, I can come up with a long list of worse fears related to panic attacks, starting with panic breathing difficulties causing oxygen deprivation to my baby.
It also suggests CBT for obsessive compulsion syndrome, when the evidence base is that while CBT gives short term relief it worsens the condition long term, and mindfulness is much more effective as an OCD therapy. (My own experience backs this up.)
If you've never read a CBT workbook, this is - well, not a particularly good one anyway, but it might be of some use.Read more ›
What that book gave me is a tool to concentrate it. I think that the most important thing is that you are proactive to understand and solve the situation. So this book is a great tool.
A very important thing is that THERE ARE NOT MANY BOOKS out there that offer this content and homework at the same time.
I have done a lot of practical sessions too together with self work and I have to say that although it was a little too narrow subject for me , it has a lot of sense.
It is a start to work on Cognitive behavior therapy
But for me what it really work was to do the CBT with a therapist that gave me the tools to work. This book thu gave me the basis to understand what CBT was and if I wanted to try. I think that can be really good to start somewhere and to prepared yourself for the road of cure
I don't think I have the knowledge to criticize the weakness of the book but what I MISSED was the part that you work a little bit deeper on working on those negative thoughts. There are a lot of techniques and they are really helpful, but I couldn't really find them in this book.Read more ›
