Cognitive Therapy and the Emotional Disorders


Is the emotionally disturbed person a victim of forces beyond his awareness, over which he has no control? This is the belief on which neuropsychiatry, psychoanalysis, and behaviour therapy are all based. But what if this premise is wrong? What if a person's psychological difficulties stem from his own erroneous assumptions and faulty concepts of himself and the world? Such a person can be helped to recognize and correct distortions in thinking that cause his emotional disturbance. Now one of the founders of cognitive therapy has written a clear, comprehensive guide to its theory and practice, highlighting such important concepts as learning the meaning of hidden messages - listening to your automatic thoughts - the role of sadness, anger and anxiety - understanding and overcoming phobias and depression.

An Instructive Read

by only on Oct 23, 2008

I do not have the knowledge or depth of understanding to offer challenge to anything presented in this book. It is perhaps now, slightly dated. It did not offer great insight to the borderline disorder. I was hoping for a little richer detail there. I have no idea of what population would find this book just enjoyable.
