There's the book and then there's the approach. The approach is explained well, the book doesn't distract from that. Some repetition, but that's important too. For me, this is a good starting point. I'll definitely try to photocopy the sheets so I have many on hand. The Reviewers on Goodreads seem to be either users of the book or perscribers of the book. I was hoping for some more meaty theoretical info, but apparently cognitive therapy is as straightforward as can be.

ينتمي الكتاب الى المدرسة النفسية القائلة بان المشاعر والعواطف تتغير بتغير القناعات والافكار او ما تعرف بالمعالجة النفسية المعرفية

يشرح الكتاب المبادئ المركزية لهذا العلم للاشخاص الغير متخصصين خطوة بخطوة مدعوما بالتمارين التي تعزز فهم الفصول

عدد فصول الكتاب فصلا تحتوي على عدد من المشكلات مع طريقة التشخيص لها مما يجعل القارئ قادرا على تشخيص مشكلته وحلها عبر فصول الكتاب المختلفه، الكتاب مكتوب بأسلوب شيق ولكن يحتاج الى جلسة صادقه مع النفس اثناء حل التمارين

I highly recommend this book to anyone curious about, or taking part in, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is used to help people cope with issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, panic attacks, and so on. CBT helps us understand how our core beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and behaviour are all intertwined. CBT then helps us correct any "flawed" beliefs or thoughts that are causing us to act or react in any way that isn't helpful, healthy, or functional. This book carefu ...more

I suffer from anxiety. This book was recently recommended to me by my regular family doctor to see if I could change my negative thoughts into more positive ones. After reading it, I don't feel any different. Then again, I only gave it a half-hearted attempt. It mentioned keeping a "thought record" but I'm too lazy to do it.

This are the things I will remember . . .

Whenever you experience a mood, there is a thought connected to it which defines the mood. (seems simple enough but for some reason
I've been working with this book for a few months now, and it's completely changed my mood, my thoughts and helped me deal with issues correctly, rather than how I was previously dealing with things. This book is a MUST for someone who is having problems coping with things when they go wrong. It's a perfect book for rehabilitation of the mind.

Simple to follow and step by step. Definitely one of the best places to start in the field of mood, worry and anxiety.

This book help me overcome panic attacks. It can also be applied to Depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Rocks!!
A fantastic self-help cognitive therapy book. Easy to follow and great participation exercises to do.
Niamh Griffin
These is an excellent resource for understanding a host of human conditions stemming from negative experiences/emotions. Good insight into anxiety, depression, guilt, anger. Workbook style so useful ongoing tools. Informative for understanding conditions that others, that you may be supporting have, as well as obviously useful for the person experiencing difficulties. I'd think from reviewing it, that it is more useful for depression than anxiety, but it still has helpful tools, tips, explanatio ...more

This is the book I recommend to patients who want a do-it-yourself (with some guidance from me) guide for treatment of depression or anxiety.
A great workbook to utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I was first introduced to this book in one of my counseling classes while we were studying different methods of using CBT effectively, so some of the ideas such as the Thought Records weren't entirely new to me. But it was a different experience to be reading this not as a psych student but as any other person clearly looking for ways to improve their mindful skills and stop their moods from ruining their lives. And I wasn't disappointed.

I first got the book when I wanted to gain better understa

لم أتخيل أبدا أن أقرأ كتابا بهذه الروعة وهذا الإبداع عن التطوير النفسي. نصحتني به صديقة بريطانية عندما علمت بمعاناتي من القلق والحقيقة أنه كان مساعدا جدا
لم أعتمد على الكتاب وحده ولكنه كان عاملا مساعدا هاما للغاية تعلمت منه الكثير حتى فيما يخص الاكتئاب أو الغضب. قد يكون للكتاب مفعول السحر في حالات أقل حدة ولكن المؤكد في كل الأحوال أنه عامل مساعد.
في البداية بحثت عن النسخة العربية ولكن لم أجدها للأسف فاضطررت لشراء النسخة الإنجليزية الأصلية ولكنها تستحق السعر الباهظ الذي دفعته

Mind Over Mood is sometimes described as the Bible of cognitive behavioural therapy - though I know a couple of CBT therapists and trainee therapists who would debate this! It's essentially a book about how to do a thought record to reduce feelings of depression, anxiety or other distressing emotions. This involves identifying the thoughts that are running through your head, deciding which one makes you feel worst, listing the factual evidence for and against that thought, then coming up with an ...more
This is the first book I recommend to people who –for whatever reason– can’t get help for their mental disorders, since this is what my two CBT groups followed when I was in for depression (and later bipolar disorder). And it worked …for the most part. It’s circumstantial, so I’ll elaborate further.

This book is covers a lot of mood disorders and gives you the tools to manage imbalanced thoughts. The trick is putting the effort into it. I find this method helps better in short term because the st

هذا الكتاب ينتمي الى مدرسة علاجية في علم النفس تسمى العلاج السلوكي المعرفي وعلى خلاف مدرسة التحليل النفسي الفرويدية التي تستغرق وقتا طويلا وتسعى الى اكتشاف سبب المشكلة النفسية في الطفولة تسعى مدرسة العلاج السلوكي الى علاج الأعراض فقط وفي وقت اقصر مثل الخوف او الحزن او الغضب وبطريقة عقلانية اي ان التفكير الذي يستطيع إدراك هذه العواطف السلبية ويعرف اسمها يمكنه ان يبددها
Knowing I was a librarian, my doctor asked me to take a look at this and let her know what I think so she knows whether to recommend it to others. I believe this was a tactful way of recommending it to my notice in the hope it would help, but unfortunately, I find it rather pathetic. I think in 1995, this may well have been a very exciting book. However, we aren't in 1995 anymore, and a 1995 emotional workbook is pretty sad-looking in 2012--it reminds me of the Windows 3.0 manual that came with ...more
This is one of the few self-help books worth more than the paper it's written on. This is self-help cognitive behavior therapy at its best. And since cognitive behavior therapy is the only therapy with any scientific proof of effectiveness; that is saying a lot. I don’t know all the books in this area, there are probably some other good ones, but this one is the only one I’ve read. I always recommend this book to anyone wanting to change something about themselves, but most of all to anyone who ...more
كأخصائية نفسية هذا الكتاب من انفع الكتب و ابسطها لفهم طبيعة العلاج السلوكي العرفي . كذلك من اسهل الكتب التي قد تعطى ليرجع لها العميل و الاستعانه بها.
Awesome advice, though chapters 3-7 were ridiculously slow.

All right, here's the play-by-play as I work through this book - my physician recommended it to help with anxiety/depression-y things, and I was all "sure, I can therapize myself."

I'm on Chapter 3 right now, "Identifying and Rating Moods". This made me go "huh" because I thought it would be easy, and quickly realized that I have no idea what my negative moods are most of the time. I just know they're negative. Something tells me I'll be working on this chapter for a while...
This is truly useful do-it-yourself explanation of cognitive behavior therapy, complete with simple practice exercises. The writers are both experienced psychotherapists who are in complete sympathy with folks who want to learn how to control their destructive moods without extensive therapist sessions.

I wish I had known of this book in my practice as an internist up to about 2 years ago. So many of my patients could have benefited from the common-sense approach.
Terry Cohoe
There are a lot of practical, hands-on tips and techniques in this book that will force you to look at your emotions and thoughts more constructively so that you can act in an appropriate way. Greenberger addresses depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame and gives readers many ways to combat these destructive forces. The book seemed way too long to me and could have easily been pared down while still portraying the same helpful message.
I'm not so sure how I feel about this book, in that some of the worksheets seem a little...outdated. I've been to a few therapists, and I get why you have to rate the anxiety/depression/anger/insert mood here. It does help to figure out what is causing the negative mood in the first place.
Sadly I bought this book and am finally reading it...10 years later. Oh well, better late than never. ;0)
Once you get past the grade-school "workbook" feel of filling out forms about your feelings, this book is actually helpful. It can give some insight into how some old thought patterns influence current strong emotional responses to certain scenarios. This can help with re-routing thought patterns for a more logical approach and positive outcome to emotionally reactive situations.

Shelves: psychology
I think this is a great tool to use when working through anxiety and depression issues. It has come in handy for myself and I've recommended it to a number of other people.

It offers a workbook type layout with analysis of mock situations to help you work through your own situations.

It helped me. It might help you. Rewire your thought processes.

Good for professionals/individuals who can work through this book with a therapist/doctor but as someone working alone without professional help to try and ease my depression it wasn't helpful.

The worksheets were ones I've been given before by psychologists, perhaps proof that this is best for professional use.
This was the book given to me by that first psych nurse I saw back in 2006 who totally screwed everything up.....later on, when I had given up on therapy altogether, I tried just doing the workbook on my own. It is pretty good...but hard to follow when you're doing it alone!
Padesky is a master with CBT. This is a good workbook for therapists to use with patients. Anyone who uses the book on it's own must first develop an understanding of CBT through Padesky's writing. It is a helpful tool on the path to growth and change.
