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.

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.

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.

Workbooks shouldn't be audiobooks

The content is excellent, but I would strongly urge you to get a print edition. This is, as the title indicates, a workbook, and it is simply not suitable for use in an audiobook format. There are so many references to tables, forms, diagrams, and fill-ins in the supplementary material. Also, the hyperlinks in that material are broken.

Mediocre

My limited experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy comes from a semester long undergraduate course.

Despite this, it feels like the author is patronizing us; sophomoric, while somehow pedantic at the same time.

For me, a waste of money and time.

Did not help me

not very good for audible as it asks you to write down your thoughts throughout. I was listening in the car. Also a lot of chapters were Unrealistic. Like the chapter on choosing activities to do. Also the chapter on face your fears and time management not relative to me. The only one I found somewhat helpful is challenging your thoughts with evidence.
