The exercises and worksheets are designed to provide powerful tools that can be used in individual or group sessions and as homework assignments. An effective way to use the workbook is to have clients complete the exercises and worksheets at home and then review them together in each session. Clients learn by doing, thus these exercises are intentionally designed to be short, sweet, and easy-to-complete. This workbook contains powerful, yet practical, tools and techniques to help mental health professionals provide clients with state-of-the-art evidence-based interventions for a broad range of addiction and mental health issues and concerns. The workbook is divided into four key sections that include practical exercises and worksheets focused on client motivation, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. In a nutshell, it helps people learn how to feel better by changing what they think and do. With the explosive movement toward accountability and evidence-based treatments, the CBT Skills Workbook will help psychologists, mental health professionals, and social workers integrate evidence-based treatments and therapies into clinical practice. In short, the workbook provides an easy to follow directory of practical exercises and homework activities that are designed to help people learn ways to have the life they truly want and deserve.
