Book Description

If you'd like to assign Mind Over Mood to your clients, but aren't sure about how to incorporate it into practice, you'll find the answers you need in Clinician's Guide to Mind Over Mood. This essential book shows you how to introduce Mind Over Mood to your clients, integrate it with your in-session therapy work, increase client compliance in completing home assignments, and overcome common difficulties. Step-by-step instructions are provided on how to tailor the program to follow cognitive therapy treatment protocols for a range of diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, panic disorder, substance abuse, and complex, multiple problems. Also outlined are ways to pinpoint the development of specific cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills. The Clinician's Guide is richly illustrated with case examples and sample client-therapist dialogues in every chapter. Note: Mind Over Mood, Second Edition, is coming in October 2015, and the second edition of the Clinician's Guide will follow in 2016 with important new material.

Product Description


"In Mind Over Mood, Greenberger and Padesky produced an absolutely first-rate guide for patients who wanted to learn about cognitive therapy and how to use it to deal with their problems. In Clinician's Guide to Mind Over Mood, the authors have provided an invaluable guide for the clinician to accompany their patient workbook. The guide is clear, concise, and filled with clinical wisdom. It should prove to be a valuable resource for anyone who wants to work with other people and reflects the kind of creativity that keeps cognitive therapy vital and fresh as it matures as a discipline." - Steve Hollon, Vanderbilt University, USA

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to lose, everything to gain! 6 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book in 2007 having been referred to a "specialist". I had previously suffered from Clinical Depression and ended up on pills and could see that I was sliding down the slippery slope again so sought the advice and help of the Doc before I got to the stage of needing tablets again. The specialist I was referred to told me that I was not suffering from depression at that point but that I was currently suffering from "anxiety" and recommended this book along with another one. He did say that "self-help" books help some people but not others. I figured I had nothing to lose, and everything to gain so promptly went on Amazon and bought both books. I worked through the exercises and found them very useful. I wrote the exercises down in a journal and dated it each time, and I've since looked back at my responses and can see how far I have come and how much this book has helped. I confess that I did find this book much more helpful than the other one and it is this book that I have recommended to several friends, either for themselves or a partner, and all who have bought it have found it very useful.

In short, you have nothing to lose by getting this book, and EVERYTHING to gain! I hope it helps you too.

By A Customer
A well thought out and easy to digest book for use by the clinician. It gives brief overviews of the historical aspects of cognitive therapy and establishes the importance of developing collaborative empiricism and guided discovery between both parties whilst working towards mutual goals.
It clearly sets out how to incorporate mind over mood within various settings such as inpatient facilities, and in doing so, it can provide professionals with support through the early days of an admission. (Providing there is closely monitored supervision, and agreement within the Multi-Disciplinary-Team that this is appropriate).
The book also suggests how to work with groups, individuals and couples, and discusses the process step by step. It also has suggestions for troubleshooting should the therapist encounter difficulties.
Within the practice setting the clinicain could find that this book when used in conjunction with patients guide to mind over mood can help them to bring about changes in cognitive processing and behaviour change.

3.0 out of 5 stars Janet B misses the point 24 July 2007
Janet B misses the whole premise. Feelings are of course a response to the world around us, but between the sensory perception of an event in the world and the feeling that results comes a thought - often unnoticed. That thought is based on our beliefs and values and the way we view the world. All CBT asks us to do is to review those beliefs and values objectively and judge whether they are valid.

This book is simplistic and doesn't explain the core concepts of CBT as well as it might, but that doesn't detract from their validity.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Possitive book 1 Jan. 2006
I bought this book because I suffer with depression, amongst other things and I have found it 100% useful.I orginally bought it out of a random choice-only to be told by my friend who is a CBT nurse that it is one of the best books about for self help. You can work with the book at your pace and lesure, and I have found the sections I have done in it most helpful to my problems and I continue to use the book.100% recommended to those who need self help that is totally possitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars CBT orientated. 3 Dec. 2014
By Findlay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very CBT orientated, with goals, tips and hints to work towards. I believe there's an additional book to go with this for the client to use so you can work through it together. Some useful suggestions, but not my style - I'm person-centered.
