A self-help guide using cognitive behavioural techniques

By Mary Burgess

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Break free from the crippling cycle of chronic fatigue

'Cognitive behaviour therapy appears to be an effective and acceptable treatment for adult out-patients with CFS. Its sufferers deserve . . . to be more aware of the potential of this therapy to bring lasting functional benefit.'
Cochrane Review


This valuable self-help guide offers ways of improving long-lasting fatigue associated with a range of long-term conditions including chronic fatigue syndrome. Using recognised techniques, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) helps to change coping strategies. The approach described helps people break the vicious circle of fatigue and for many results in a reduction in symptoms and disability.

Guidance on how to improve sleep
Practical strategies for balancing activity and rest
Tips on setting and working towards targets that would improve your life
Step-by-step advice on dealing with blocks to recovery
Tools for coping with worry and stress
Ways to challenge unhelpful thoughts
Suggestions for how partners, relatives and friends can help

Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.

The Wonder of Being

Jeff Foster
Authors:
Jeff Foster

What if life is infinitely simpler than you ever imagined?We spend our lives seeking wealth, success, love, fulfilment, and even "spiritual enlightenment" in the future. Yet right at the heart of life there is an intimacy, a simplicity, a wholeness that is totally beyond words-and which cannot be reached through any kind of effort. In our attempts to change, to improve ourselves, or become "enlightened," we end up ignoring this wordless intimacy which is our birthright and our true home.The Wonder of Being points to the eternal freedom which exists beyond the seeker and the sought, and shows us the hidden assumptions that underlie our seeking activities. With great humour, compassion and clarity, Jeff Foster reminds us of something we have always known-that life, as it is, is a miracle... and beyond our thoughts, we are already free.

Need to Please

Micki Fine
Authors:
Micki Fine

Do you have a hard time saying no to others, no matter how outrageous their requests? If so, you might be a chronic people-pleaser. Unfortunately, because we live in a society that praises putting the needs of others before ourselves, it can be difficult to break this bad habit. And while thinking of others is always commendable, there is a fine line between sacrifice and senseless approval seeking.In The Need to Please, a leading mindfulness expert and psychotherapist provides compassionate, mindfulness-based techniques that will help chronic people-pleasers like you address and overcome your fears of failure, inappropriate self-sacrificing, loss of personal identity, and voracious need of approval. In addition, you will learn to put an end to the codependent behaviors that lie at the heart of being a people-pleaser. Change is hard-especially when it means going against years of social conditioning. But if you're ready to "Just Say No," to others' demands and start saying, "Yes" to your own needs, this book can help.

Living and Loving after Betrayal

Steven Stosny
Authors:
Steven Stosny

Betrayal has many faces, including anger, abuse, deceit, and infidelity. If you've recently left a relationship where you felt betrayed by your partner, you may have difficulty moving on. In fact, it can seem impossible to view the world without the shadow of this past betrayal hovering over you, and as a result you may struggle to create meaning in your life and build new, loving relationships.In Living and Loving after Betrayal, clinical psychologist and anger management expert Steven Stosny offers you effective tools for healing based on his successful program, CompassionPower. This program was founded on the belief that individuals and societies are more powerful when compassionate than when angry or aggressive, and that true strength comes from relating compassionately to others and remaining true to your deeper values. In this book, you'll learn practical strategies for overcoming betrayal-induced trauma and chronic resentment using this compassionate approach. Most books on betrayal only focus on the big issues, such as infidelity, abuse, or sex addiction. This book explores all of these topics, but also explores less-talked-about betrayals, such as emotional manipulation, dishonesty and deceit, and financial betrayal. In addition, this book aims to help you regain a sense of trust in others so that you can eventually find another compassionate person to share your life with.Recovering from the betrayal of partner isn't easy, but there are ways that you can heal and learn to love again.

Authors:
Sheri Van Dijk

Originally developed for the treatment of borderline personality disorder, dialectical behaviour therapy, or DBT, has rapidly become one of the most popular and most effective treatments for all mental health conditions rooted in out-of-control emotions. However, there are limited resources for psychologists seeking to use DBT skills with individual clients. DBT Made Simple provides clinicians with everything they need to know to start using DBT in the therapy room.The first part briefly covers the theory and research behind DBT and explains how DBT differs from traditional cognitive behavioural therapy approaches. The second part focuses on strategies professionals can use in individual client sessions, while the third section teaches the four skills modules that form the backbone of DBT: core mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. The book includes handouts, case examples, and example therapist-client dialogue.

Authors:

It's not easy to be a teen girl, but it's even harder to parent one. Parents everywhere struggle to respond appropriately to the defiant behaviour, confrontational or non-existent communication, and mood swings commonly exhibited by teenage girls. This population faces a unique range of body image issues and psychological vulnerabilities that put them at increased risk for depression, eating disorders, self-injury, anxiety, and mental health conditions. Written by the mother of two teenage girls who is also a licensed clinical psychologist, Parenting a Teen Girl is a parent's survival guide to navigating this challenging time. This workbook offers parents the skills, exercises, and scripts they need to rebuild communication with their daughters and build the foundation for greater cooperation and connection in the future. Unlike similar books, which merely serve as frightening exposes of bad teen behaviour, this book provides parents with concrete tools and tips they can use right away to decrease their anxiety, increase understanding in the parent-teen relationship, and become more successful in communicating with their teen daughters. The book includes information on dating, academics, and technology use that will prove immensely helpful to parents.

Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction

Rebecca E. Williams
Authors:
Rebecca E. Williams

Most addictive behavior is rooted in some type of loss, be it the death of a loved one, coming to terms with limitations set by chronic health problems, or the end of a relationship. By turning to drugs and alcohol, people who have suffered a loss can numb their grief. In the process, they postpone their healing and can drive themselves further into addiction.The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction offers readers an effective program for working through their addiction and grief with cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Created by two psychologists who work for Veterans' Affairs, this mindfulness training workbook is effective for treating the emotion dysregulation, stress, depression, and grief that lie at the heart of addiction. No matter the loss, the mindfulness skills in this workbook help readers process their grief, determine the function their addiction is serving, and replace the addiction with healthy coping behaviors.
