There are hundreds of books that will try to help you ''overcome'' or ''put an end to'' depression. But what if you could use your depression to change your life for the better? Your symptoms may be signals that something in your life needs to change. Learning to understand and interpret these signals is much more important than ignoring or avoiding them - approaches that only make the situation worse. This workbook uses techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to offer a new treatment plan for depression that will help you live a productive life by accepting your feelings instead of fruitlessly trying to avoid them. The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Depression will show you, step-by-step, how to stop this cycle, feel more energized, and involve yourself in pleasurable and fulfilling activities that will help you work through, rather than avoid, aspects of your life that are depressing you. Use the techniques in this book to evaluate your own depression and create a personalized treatment plan. You'll enrich your total life experience by focusing your energy not on fighting depression, but on living the life you want.

Stop disruptive, negative thoughts at their root with a new method of mental control from one of the most distinguished figures in the field of CBT Our mind is always active, capable of generating free-floating thoughts that are entirely disconnected from each other and may have little relevance to our current situation. Sometimes these thoughts take on a darker, more negative tone because they're triggered by a stressful or problematic situation. These unwanted intrusive thoughts play an important role in the persistence and severity of anxiety and depression. They often trigger other forms of distressing thought such as obsessive thinking, worry, rumination or pathological guilt. Based on new findings on the nature of mental control, this book targets negative, intrusive thoughts with therapeutic strategies based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). You will learn: · How our minds become unsettled by doubts and unwanted thoughts · Strategies for developing greater willpower and self-control · Control skills for self-discovery, mental de-toxification and mindful self-acceptance · Way to maximise positive intrusions and be mindfully accepting of yourself Published by New Harbinger in the USA under the title The Anxious Thoughts Workbook: Skills to Overcome the Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts that Drive Anxiety, Obsessions and Depression
