This therapy mini-ebook collection will give you a closer look at some psychotherapy approaches that are useful for mental illness. You’ll get the info you need to make choices about what sort of therapy to pursue, and you’ll get some self-help tips to put some of the key concepts into practice on your own.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Fundamentals
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) blends mindfulness, de-fusing yourself from your thoughts and emotions, and committing to actions that are consistent with your values. Rather than challenging negative thoughts, like what you might do in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), ACT focuses on acceptance, allowing thoughts to come and go as they please. It may seem counterintuitive, but when you find out more, it starts to make a lot of sense.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Fundamentals
The mini e-book CBT Fundamentals provides an introduction to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), including some of the key concepts and techniques, both cognitive and behavioural. There is also an overview of the CBT strategies that are typically used in the treatment of a number of different mental health conditions and psychological problems, including anger and low self-esteem.
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) Skills for mood disorders
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) isn’t just for borderline personality disorder. The DBT Skills for Mood Disorders mini e-book will introduce you to skills that can be very useful for people with mood disorders, in the areas of:
- emotional regulation
- distress tolerance
- interpersonal effectiveness.
