The self-help classic Thoughts and Feelings adapts CBT techniques into a powerful program that has benefitted thousands of readers by helping them overcome the emotional and behavioral challenges of everyday life.

This workbook shows readers how they can identify and change the irrational recurring thoughts that can lead to anxiety, anger, depression, and obsessive thinking by replacing these negative thoughts with new, constructive thoughts and behaviors. Readers discover how to distance themselves from unproductive negative thoughts and learn to identify their core values so they can use these values as a road map to emotional stability and life satisfaction.

This revised edition includes the latest statistics and research on depression, anxiety and panic, OCD, anger problems, stress and phobias. It also offers new cognitive defusion and values-based behavioural activation techniques drawn from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
