Publisher's Summary

For many, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has proved to be a tipping point, a treatment through which they are finally able to make significant changes and break free of anxiety and depression. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 7 Weeks is an interactive audio workbook that outlines a simple, practical plan that occurs over the course of seven weeks, and offers real, tangible relief from anxiety and depression. This is a cumulative workbook - the work you do each week builds upon that of the last and, ultimately, creates a lasting CBT tool kit that will prepare you to handle future challenges as they come.

In his private practice, licensed psychologist Dr. Seth Gillihan specializes in the use of cognitive-behavioral treatment for anxiety and depression. He concentrates on the specific needs of each patient by using the evidence-based, solution-focused treatment principles of CBT - the fundamentals of which are at the core of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 7 Weeks. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 7 Weeks you will become familiar with the basic principles of CBT and understand how it works, define specific goals that you'll work toward over the course of seven weeks, and learn fundamental CBT skills through guided writing exercises that apply to your current, real-life challenges.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 7 Weeks is the most comprehensive yet efficient workbook available for using CBT to address anxiety and depression.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great introduction to CBT

This book is a great introduction to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. The bonus material and workbook style is perfect for beginners or as a refresher.

This is supposed to be an Audio book.

This book places a huge importance on writing down stuff, checking out diagrams and etc. That defies the purpose of an audio book that we usually listen to while working out, or simply doing anything else that restrain us from reading a book, or writing down thoughts for that matter.

Dont download the audio book

The audiobook's included pdf does not have all of the chapters checklists and workbook prompts. If you're serious about doing this 7-week course you're better off getting the paper book. Otherwise, there are parts of it that are not read.

The PDF has missing pages

I'd hoped to use it in conjunction with the PDF workbook but there are lots of missing pages so the workbook doesn't really make sense.

Annoying narrator

Too American, too slow, too annoying. How many words is that now? Still not enough?

this isn't a book it's an un-constructive module

Struggled with most of this book. You can't come to terms with mental issues or anxiety disorders via a book. It should have stuck at explaining disorders & determining differences & similarities between the. The book has exercises throughout that are mainly based on examples from fictitious characters problems so you will never "fix" anything with this book because if you have a disorder you need to reflect YOUR examples with a real person or counsellor who can give feedback on YOUR issues. Just glad I used a free credit to download this.

Trivialises Depression & Anxiety

The book is pretty devoid of useful guidance. The examples used are laughable. One was where a mother was depressed because she talked sternly to her child. Another was a chap who was scared to cross bridges. A lot of the others sound like made up garbage, Don't waste your money.

Ok so far but the pdf workbook is not complete

I bought the audio book and have started. However the pdf work book is not complete. Some of the pages are missing. I contacted audible who in turn contacted the publisher. Publisher has said they will NOT update the pdf. Audible refunded me, to their credit. Poor show by the publishers though.
You can still go through the exercises but it would have been easier with a work book

Bonus material

Literally just started listening and the narrator mentioned bonus material with diagrams etc. I have no bonus material, supposedly available in library. Not even 5 minutes in and seems like a waste of time. Disappointing.

Great book.

The book helped me through a depression that I have. Is really filled with examples of real life that everybody can relate. Examples that can teach us where we do mistakes and how. I totally enjoyed and recommend.

Pages missing from the PDF

Pages missing from the PDF that do some explaining. sentences cut off part the way through, for the PDF version. 'not good enough'. a self help book with limitations and needs help. not a great start.

Too long to help anyone

Don’t bother. This is literally the worst. I’ve listened to the last hour and have got nothing. Please please don’t ever put your rubbish on here again.
