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 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

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

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

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.

These 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

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

İlk 200 sayfa kendini tekrardan ibaret (aslında kendini tekrar tam nerede bitiyor tam sayfasına bile bakmadım.) Defalarca basılan birebir aynı şablonlar yüzünden okuması kolay oldu. Son 100 sayfada bir iki metre daha derinleşti kitap.

CBT is used to help people cope with issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, panic attacks, and so on.

I've used parts of this book for years - but this year I decided to sit down and read it cover to cover. It was a great intro to basic skills of mental health - and it actually sounded a lot like Motivational Interviewing, or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in certain parts... which are approaches that I took to more naturally than skill based CBT. I would recommend this book to people who get stuck in their thoughts and need to learn new habits and who thrive on intellectual self-direction an ...more

Depresyona mı girdim acaba diye soran ve endişe duyan herkesin okuması gereken bir kitap. Kendi kendinizi tedavi etmeye çalışmanıza yardımcı olacak ve sonrası için de size yol gösterecek bir kitap.
Kitap da 4 5 danışanın sorunları ve onlara uygulanan yöntemler yer almakta.
Panik atak , alkol bağımlılığı , depresyon gibi sorunların çözümü için danışanlarına testler uygulayan terapist sizin için de boş sayfalar ayırmış.
Akıcı ve dinamik bir kitap.
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.

My guide.
Having anxiety, CBT has been pushed on me quite a lot. I was recommended this book when it came out I believe. Honestly at that point, nothing really stuck and I almost found reading it caused more anxiety. I have found others that work better for me. But really, it's subjective for the person.

Como terapeuta cognitivo, meu único problema com esse livro é não ter lido ele antes.

É um plano de terapia cognitivo-comportamental de excelente qualidade embalado em um pacote amigável em linguagem agradável, clara e acessível tanto para o paciente quanto para o terapeuta.

Mesmo não usando o livro completo, vários dos seus exercícios são facilmente aplicáveis em consultório e de fácil compreensão ao paciente.

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

Whether or not you are interested in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, this is a great book for therapists and general public to deepen their insight into the connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Calling it a self-help book doesn’t do its justice. It is a exploratory manual to help deal with depression, anxiety, anger, guilt and shame using simple, but effective worksheets and strategies. It is something that you can use on your own (or alongside a therapist) that does empower to res ...more

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

تأخّرت في الحديث عن هذا الكتاب رغم أني بدأت بقراءته من فترة طويلة لأنني كنت أعتقد أنني قد لا أستطيع أن أعطيه حقه وربما أفشل في اظهار قيمته. لكن بحاول أنصفه.
طيب، أنا مو من روّاد حفلات التشويق. ولا أحبها خصوصًا إذا تعلقت بالنتاجات العلمية التي تحتاج إلى تدقيق حصيف ونقدي. ولكن هذا الكتاب غيّر بي الكثير، وجعلني شخص مختلف بشكلٍ ما.
ما دفعني لقراءة هذا الكتاب تحديدًا رغم أن هناك الكثير من الكتب التي تناولت الموضوع، هو أن الدكتور آرون بيك، أستاذ الطب النفسي في جامعة بنسلفانيا، ورئيس معهد بيك للعلاج المع

I understand how Mind Over Mood is very helpful to many people. Ten years ago I would also have benefitted from its exercises and information. But unfortunately it was less then helpful with my current needs.

While I like the idea of a Thought Record and I’ve taken some of the ideas from it to use in my journaling, keeping a regular log of a 7 column breakdown of my thoughts just sounds exhausting. I knowing how bad I am at keeping a regular journal or tracking calories, it would be of little be
