INTRODUCING CBT FOR WORK - A PRACTICAL GUIDE focuses on how you can incorporate CBT's insights to improve your time in the workplace, such as tackling lack of self-motivation or feelings of inadequacy, and replacing them with new ways of thinking that will make you both happier and more effective in your work. Whether you're suffering from a particular complaint or simply feel that CBT's measured and results-driven approach can be of benefit to you, this is the perfect concise guidebook.

By Tim
The evidence is now clear that CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can be very effective at helping with many emotional problems such as depression and anxiety. Clinical experience also suggests it can help with anger, stress, guilt and burn-out. It is therefore surprising that there has not been more written about the application of CBT in the workplace. This books fills the gap nicely. It is clearly written, full of case studies, fits into your pocket easily and is available at a very affordable price.
The book is up to date, including sections on mindfulness and positive psychology and happiness. It does not cover disorder-specific protocols for CBT (e.g. those for OCD, PTSD etc) but then you would not expect this in a book about CBT in the workplace.
If you are looking for a well-structured introduction to CBT that is applicable at work, look no further. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to CBT self-help 29 Dec 2013
This is a handy little practical guidebook for cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) self-help in the workplace, containing exercises and example case studies. It's about overcoming specific worries but also building a more general psychological resilience toward future adversities. It's written in plain English in a very readable and accessible style but the emphasis is on evidence-based practice, and how research can help us cope better with problems at work, as well as improving workplace happiness and wellbeing.

Gill is a psychologist and accredited CBT practitioner, with over twenty years' experience using CBT in a variety of settings. She's part of the team responsible for the Stoic Week projects organized through the University of Exeter, which seek to apply Stoic philosophy to modern problems of everyday living, by combining it with elements of CBT. She draws also on Positive Psychology, mindfulness-based CBT, and Rational-Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). Indeed, Gill opens with the famous quotation from the Stoic Handbook of Epictetus, which became a kind of slogan of REBT:

"Men are disturbed not by things but by the views which they take of them."

...or as Marcus Aurelius, also quoted here, put it: "life is opinion". CBT is based on the premise that, with training, we can learn to change our habitual emotional reactions by changing our voluntary thoughts and actions. We do this by using our thinking and our behaviour to challenge the underlying beliefs typically responsible for our emotions. Gill describes a broad armamentarium or toolkit for this purpose, specially adapted for managing workplace stress. The basis is the fundamental CBT model, which Gill calls the "Think Kit".

5.0 out of 5 stars Has helped so many of my friends already 16 Mar 2014
I really enjoyed reading this book as well as finding it cleared up a lot of issues I was facing at work. For me the most powerful aspect of it is seeing the impact it has made on my colleagues that i have recommended it to, some of whom were really anxious and even quite depressed beforehand. I overheard one on Friday telling another colleague about the book. My M.D. is so impressed with the changes he wants to make everyone read it! An insightful and thorough introduction to the very real difference CBT can make to our lives, I'll keep spreading the word!
