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 ١٢ 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

الفصل الاول : هناك خمسة جوانب لخبرات الحياة

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.

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'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.

لقد قراته في الوقت المناسب
افتقد شخصا احببته كثيرا لكنه لم يستمر نظرا انني سيئه للغايه و نعم لم ارى نفسي الا انني شخص سئ وظننت انني خسرته لكن عندما قرات هذا الكتاب الرائع فقد اعطاني جزئا من التفائل والثقه ومهما بلغت مساوئ فالبتاكيد هناك اسباب لها وتحتاج الى دعم حقيقي حينها ادركت بمن يرحل من اجل مساوئ ولم يلتمس الحسن فليس داعي للحزن والاكتئاب وحقا الحياة لن تتوقف وهنا يبدا العقل فوق العاطفة
قد نواجه مشاكل كثيرة بكل اشكالها وقد تغير هذه المشاكل في شخصيتنا وتتغير العاطفه وقد تصل الحالة الي التفكير

كتاب رائع وعملي جداً ويناسب كل العقول مختلف مستوياتها , يتحدث بشكل عملي عن كيفية السيطرة على أفكارنا ومحاكمتها قبل أن تتحول لمشاعر وسلوك قد يؤذينا , وكيف يمكن تعديل مشاعرنا تعديل أفكارنا والحكم على أنفسنا والآخرين والعالم
قد لا يتحقق التحسن والوضع المنشود لكل منا 100% , وهذا ما يعترف به الكتاب , لكن أعتقد أنه يممكن تحقيق مستوى ولو بسيط من التحسن
كتاب ألفه مجموعة من الأخصائيين النفسيين الغربيين وترجمه طبيب نفسي عربي أظنه عمل معهم
أنصح قرائته

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

This book mainly focuses on how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be used to treat the negative feelings of anxiety and depressive symptoms. 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 interconnected and so, they affect each other. Thus, the focus of CBT is to help us correct any beliefs or thoughts that are causing us to act ...more

وأخيرا كتاب فاق توقعاتي

العنوان سمعته من أكثر من طبيب نفسي للمساعدة على فهم مشاعرنا والتحكم فيها (مثل الغضب، الحزن، القلق، الخجل، خيبة الأمل، السعادة، الحب،…)

كنت محتاجة كتاب بهالمستوى لاحتواء مشاعري بعد اجباري على العمل مع الدراسة (كأنه إنسان يطبطب علي)

من الكتب اللي برشحها للناس بمختلف أعمارهم وفترات حياتهم.

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

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

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 book explains Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and then takes you through steps, workbook style, to apply CBT strategies to yourself. There are a nice set of case studies that get pulled through the whole book to illustrate how thoughts-feelings-behaviors are intertwined and they're used as examples for each activity. There are separate chapters to skip ahead to for certain disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety), which are helpful in and of themselves, but flipping back and forth between can be ...more

Just finished this book after 3 years of reading and taking time off (on & off) and here's what I think:

What I love about this book is that it teaches you to look at things from a different angle or broadens your awareness. A drawback of the book is that it has a lot, and I mean a lot, of information and techniques that you need to learn. I read chapters 1-4 three times just to understand and memorize what's in them. Finally, I recommend reading this book or studying it with a therapist or a

كتاب رائع يشرح تطبيق العلاج السلوكي المعرفي، وهو موجه للعموم وليس للمختصين مما يجعل لغته و أمثلته مفهوم.

قد يستفيد منه أكثر من حضر جلسات علاج سلوكي معرفي لأنها تأكد على مافيها وتضيف بعض الجوانب المتقدمة و المفيدة جدا

من الفصول الرائعة لكن لم يتم التفصيل فيها بمافيه الكفاية هو الغضب و كيفية التحكم به، ربما بضع صفحات في الكتاب تحدثت عنه بالتفصيل لكنها مركزة وتستحق القراءة.

كتاب رائع خاصة أنه يناقش كيف نتعامل مع الأفكار التلقائية السلبية ومعالجتها , الكتاب لايدعو الى التفكير
الايجابي المطلق الذي يزعم البعض أنه يجعلنا أكثر سعادة, ولكن يدعو لمناقشة الأفكار بحيادية والنظر إليها من مختلف الزوايا

Loved all the worksheets that actually enables to look at your problem in a systematic way all by ourselves and enable us to realize that our situation is not as bad as our Automatic mind creates by stacking up the negative thoughts. Also, I got inspired by the stories inside the book which are actually very harsh compare to what we normal people worry about.

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.
