Cognitive behavior therapy for anxiety, addiction and depression : everything you need to know about treating depression, social anxiety, addictions, trauma, OCD, irrational phobias, health, social negative thinking, intrusive thoughts / by Joyce, William E.;
At least one in five adults in the US experiences some form of mental illness every year--a clear indication that the number of Americans who are battling mental illnesses is on an upward trajectory. This reality has called upon various methods of treatment, but none seems as effective as cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT is a method of treatment that embraces the best aspects of both talk therapy and behavioral therapy. It has been exceedingly successful because it offers a lot of flexibility and the results are long-lasting--a stark contrast to most other forms of treatments such as medication, which can be rigid, expensive, and not to mention, cyclical. According to CBT practitioners, behaviors, thoughts, and feelings are intertwined. A person's feelings are informed by their perceptions, which might be accurate or distorted. Hence, CBT steps in to expose cognitive distortions and promote positive thoughts, thus effectively restoring mental health.What is cognitive behavioral therapy? -- How cognitive behavioral therapy helps treat depression -- How cognitive behavioral therapy helps treat generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder -- How cognitive behavioral therapy helps treat OCD -- How cognitive behavioral therapy helps treat PTSD -- How cognitive behavioral therapy helps treat addiction.

The book is a practical guide to the disorders described in the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The most recent edition of DSM is the fifth edition text revision, referred to as DSM-5-TR. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) developed Understanding Mental Disorders: Your Guide to DSM-5-TR to help people whose lives have been touched by mental illness. The book was written to help people better understand mental disorders and how to manage them. The APA also publishes DSM. The purpose of DSM is to create a common language for health care providers who diagnose mental illnesses. Understanding Mental Disorders can be a helpful resource when talking with a health care provider before or after a diagnosis is received. The content of this book mirrors that of DSM-5-TR-it describes symptoms, risk factors, and related disorders. It defines mental disorders based on their symptoms and explores special needs or concerns. This new edition of Understanding Mental Disorders reflects changes made to DSM-5-TR and has been fully updated. Understanding Mental Disorders was first published after the publication of DSM-5. Understanding Mental Disorders is designed to help combat mental illness through education about the disorders and their symptoms, know when to seek help, and what to expect from treatment"--
