Thoughts & Feelings Summary

Thoughts & Feelings: Taking Control of Your Moods and Your Life by Matthew McKay

Most self-help books focus on a single topic - a problem, disorder, or life-change goal - and offer readers strategies designed to help them make progress on whatever that topic might be. If you're depressed, get a book on depression. Afraid of heights? There's a book just for you. But the fact is that human problems rarely boil down to a single topic: Few of us are ever just depressed, just anxious, or just inclined to eat too much at dinner. It's far more likely that we want to shake the blues and stop worrying about the bills and learn how to be develop healthy eating habits, and ...the list goes on. Fortunately, some self-help books take a broader approach, one that is as comprehensive and flexible as the problems we all struggle with every day. "Thoughts and Feelings" is such a book. It adapts the powerful and widely adaptable techniques of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) into a set of tools readers can use, not to solve a particular problem, but to overcome any of the emotional and behavioural changes that life throws their way. CBT recognizes that most negative feelings arise from confused, irrational thoughts. By learning to identify and change these thoughts and by replacing destructive and limiting behaviors with new, more constructive ones, readers can start steering their lives in the direction they want to go. Changes to this new edition include revisions and updates to the core CBT chapters as well as a new chapter on how to use mindfulness to bring focus and intention to the process of change.
