Introducing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Work: A Practical Guide
Introducing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Work: A Practical Guide
by Gill Garratt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very accessible practical guide to CBT for work, 3 Feb. 2013
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.


Positive Psychology In A Nutshell: The Science Of Happiness
Positive Psychology In A Nutshell: The Science Of Happiness

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for budding positive psychologists, 27 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I teach courses in Positive Psychology and this book has always been one of my most recommended books.
It is easy to ready, authoritative and concise. I like its style - bright and breezy, educating in
a very palatable manner.
All of the topics of positive psychology one would expect are included - including happiness, positive emotions, strengths, hope, love, optimism, flow - as well as those not always covered so much such as eudaimonic well-being, time, freedom of choice and meaning. There are also useful sections on putting positive psychology into practice and positive psychology interventions
This new edition is updated to include a good range of internet resources and recommended further reading.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars How one man made made a million away from the cold credit-crunch ..., 8 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have known Peter Cooper since sharing Philosophy tutorials with him at Oxford University, and even then had the impression that one of us would go on to make a million, and that it probably wouldn't be me. Well, this is the story of how he did it.
He pulls no punches about the low he found himself in after being fired from his previous job, nor about his lack of basic requirements regarding what you'd expect when setting up a successful computer-based business -such as - capital, computer expertise and some staff. But this book tells the story, in a most engaging way, of how he turned it all round, with a mixture of determination, finding the right business partners, confidence and sheer hard work.
Writing this from a snow-covered, depression-heading UK, a book about how to make a fortune in the warmth of Dubai would be very timely. Whilst Opportunity Dubai isn't exactly such a self-help book, it is an extremely readable, warts and all, and true account of how one man did just that. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Revelations (Paperback)
A cracking good read, cleverly plotted, that will have wide appeal and would make a great film. Thoroughly recommended.

Twists, comic moments, literary allusions - it's got them all.

Destructive Emotions and How We Can Overcome Them
Destructive Emotions and How We Can Overcome Them

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, Inspiring account of East meeting West, 23 April 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was recommended by one of the students of a course I teach on Positive Psychology. I hadnt read it, so took a gamble (despite a couple of negative reviews on amazon) and took it on holiday

It's one of the most inspiring books I've read for ages. It really does hammer home what an exciting field this is, and also how east and west can enlighten each other. I can only assume that those readers who wrote negative reviews were expecting a very simple recipe-book.

The book is a detailed and very interesting account of a 4 day seminar featuring Buddhists and western scientists and philosophers. It really was a "think-together" exercise. They didnt always agree, but all learnt from the experience - as we do. Goleman is his lucid and very positive usual self, and we are introduced to many experts on the subject of emotions.

The book begins with two chapters putting the rest into context. The first gives fascinating evidence that meditation actually changes one's brain structure in a very positive way (so learning about buddhist practice may be very helpful even if you dont want to be a Buddhist). The second chapter emphasises the Dalai Lama's lifelong interest in science (so he is a man to take seriously).

The book concludes with a postscript and suggestions for further reading.

If you are at all interested in destructive or negative emotions (especially anger), or in Buddhism, or in neuroscience - then this book is a must.


The Jane Austen Book Club
The Jane Austen Book Club

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to be proud of, and I'm not prejudiced, 17 Jun. 2005
This book was a great idea. A book club (very trendy) which discusses Jane Austen's books (great idea, there are a manageable number of books and plenty of people know them all).
Then we have the entertaining guessing game trying to match Austen characters and plots with the books characters and plots.
But - and it's a big but - the execution is far worse than the idea. First, the style is as far from Austen as you can imagine - no lightness of touch, no wit. Second, the characters just arent very engaging.
Perhaps its too American - maybe someone will write a UK Jane Austen book club, in an Austenesque style, with people we really care about. That would get five stars from me - as it is this isnt a bad light read for anyone who likes Austen, but worth no more than 2 stars


Existential Therapies
Existential Therapies
by Mick Cooper

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for budding existential therapists, 22 May 2005
This review is from: Existential Therapies (Paperback)
Existential therapy is an increasingly popular approach.
Until now, though, each proponent of existential therapy - Yalom, Frankl, van Deurzen, Spinelli and the rest - have written almost as if they were inventing the approach. The field is now mature enough for a knowledgable, sympathetic practioner to survey the field and compare the approaches.
Mick Cooper, a UKCP registered therapist, has written such a book. He takes each approach and describes it and then critiques it in such a way as to give the reader a good idea of its strengths and weaknesses.
The title shows Coopers own view - which is surely right - that there is not just one existential therapy, but a whole range of existential therapies.
Cooper is also good at making this sometimes complicated-sounding approach understandable, and provides an accessible introduction to some of the philosophical ideas behind it.
Thoroughly recommended.
