Learn what CBT is, and how you can use it to improve your life - whatever your background.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is now hugely popular, and as a self-help technique that has helped millions of people, and as an NHS-funded treatment for illnesses like depression. TEACH YOURSELF: COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY was one of the first and most successful books on CBT. This new edition shows how CBT techniques, which focus on using altered patterns of thinking to achieve goals and overcome problems, can make a major difference to your mentality. The first half of the book explains the background to CBT, what it is, and how to use it. The second half of the book gives examples of how you can use CBT to deal with specific issues, such as helping to overcome depression and anxiety, and boosting your mindfulness, resilience, assertiveness and self-esteem.
