Stop Smoking Now 2nd Edition Book Excerpt:

Have you ever tried to give up smoking? Most smokers have. It is even more difficult to avoid relapse - after days, weeks or even years - and the long-term results of many stop smoking programmes are disappointing. But this week-long programme can help you stop smoking for good. Professor David F Marks uses techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which has been proven to be effective by teaching you how to 're-program' your mind to not want to smoke. You will no longer have to rely on willpower alone to give up smoking. By becoming aware of your smoking triggers and dealing with the thoughts and behaviours that lead you to smoke automatically, over the course of a week you will gradually find your cravings disappear altogether. You will learn: · Exercises and strategies to help you regain control from your smoking automatic pilot · Advice on relaxation and stress reduction · How to avoid future relapses · Why alternative approaches such nicotine replacement therapy or e-cigarettes are less effective · Tips on healthy eating and exercise to manage weight Stop Smoking Now will help you not only give up your habit, but help you to remain a non-smoker for life. Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.

Controlling Your Mind Book Excerpt:

Stop disruptive, negative thoughts at their root with a new method of mental control from one of the most distinguished figures in the field of CBT Our mind is always active, capable of generating free-floating thoughts that are entirely disconnected from each other and may have little relevance to our current situation. Sometimes these thoughts take on a darker, more negative tone because they're triggered by a stressful or problematic situation. These unwanted intrusive thoughts play an important role in the persistence and severity of anxiety and depression. They often trigger other forms of distressing thought such as obsessive thinking, worry, rumination or pathological guilt. Based on new findings on the nature of mental control, this book targets negative, intrusive thoughts with therapeutic strategies based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). You will learn: · How our minds become unsettled by doubts and unwanted thoughts · Strategies for developing greater willpower and self-control · Control skills for self-discovery, mental de-toxification and mindful self-acceptance · Way to maximise positive intrusions and be mindfully accepting of yourself Published by New Harbinger in the USA under the title The Anxious Thoughts Workbook: Skills to Overcome the Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts that Drive Anxiety, Obsessions and Depression

The Worry Workbook Book Excerpt:

Written by two psychologists and experts in anxiety, The Worry Workbook provides powerful, evidence-based tips and tools to help you challenge your fears, build a tolerance for uncertainty, and find relief from worry. Are you plagued by persistent worry? Do you have trouble making everyday decisions? Are you a perfectionist exhausted from trying to meet unreasonably high standards? Do you procrastinate important tasks? All of these problems could be caused by the same thing: an intolerance for uncertainty in the face of new challenges or unpredictable outcomes. Everyone worries from time to time—it’s unavoidable. But chronic worrying, anxiety, and fear can also take a hefty toll on your health, happiness, and relationships. If you’re someone who worries about what might happen if you try something new, you aren’t alone! Many people lose sleep over “what ifs”—leading to difficulty making decisions, avoiding new situations, trouble with relationships, and missing out on life’s adventures! So, how can you overcome this fear and start living your best life? While there are many self-help books and workbooks that tackle worry and anxiety, The Worry Workbook is the first to provide guidance for overcoming the fear of uncertainty. With this guide, you’ll find concrete exercises and step-by-step instructions to help you identify your fear of uncertainty—whatever it is—and challenge it using powerful cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) practices like self-assessment, self-monitoring, and behavioral experiments. Chronic worrying can affect all aspects of your life. This book will help you target your fears and worries, tolerate uncertainty, and trust your own judgment and abilities in the face of doubt.

The Therapeutic Relationship in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Book Excerpt:

The therapeutic relationship in CBT is often reduced to a cursory description of establishing warmth, genuineness and empathy in order to foster a collaborative relationship. This does not reflect the different approaches needed to establish a therapeutic partnership for the wide range of disorders and settings in which CBT is applied. This book takes a client group and disorder approach with chapters split into four sections: General issues in the therapeutic relationship in CBT Therapeutic relationship issues in specific disorders Working with specific client groups Interpersonal considerations in particular delivery situations Each chapter outlines key challenges therapists face in a specific context, how to predict and prevent ruptures in the therapeutic alliance and how to work with these ruptures when they occur. With clinical vignettes, dialogue examples and ‘tips for therapists' this book is key reading for CBT therapists at all levels.

The Worry Book Book Excerpt:

Statistically, life has never been safer. Yet worry has reached epidemic proportions. So what has gone wrong? Many Christians are suffering in silence, unsure if psychological solutions are appropriate for them, or if biblical teaching can lead them to freedom. The Worry Book offers a fresh solution: seeing the process of worry as the problem, rather than getting stuck into individual concerns. We can use worry to create a sense of certainty and control, but the illusion is temporary, and we generate even more problems in the process. Here we learn about the factors behind worry, and how to disable the cycle of worry and tolerate uncertainty - principles we can apply to every situation. This is a journeyman's guide through the comedy and heartache of discovering worry's function, and so removing its power. Good theology and psychology combine to offer new perspectives and real hope.
