Book - Review - Change your thinking : positive and practical ways to overcome stress, negative emotions and self- defeating behaviour using CBT by Sarah Edelman PhD

The author of this third edition, Sarah Edelman, is a world renowned clinical psychologist and trainer. She has worked as a researcher, lecturer and runs workshops at the University of Technology Sydney.


The book Change your thinking : positive and practical ways to overcome stress, negative emotions and self-defeating behaviour using CBT has 12 chapters with exercises and is based on the principles of Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). It shows how to use these principles to deal with difficult emotions such as anger, depression, anxiety and frustration. It helps us deal with complicated thoughts and feelings we experience in day to day life. Some of the chapters also deal with maintaining self-esteem, effective communication and mindfulness.
I found this book to be a great reference book on CBT. It has great exercises to work through and everyday life examples which made the content easy to relate to. I especially found the mindfulness chapter very useful.
