Cognitive Behavioral Therapy by Lawrence Wallace {Book Review}

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that is helpful to those with anxiety, depression, and even some phobias. CBT starts by “reprogramming” how you think by isolating how you got to the specific thoughts that trigger negativity. Being able to trace your thoughts, and figure out why you’re thinking the way you are, and where each thought comes from can be helpful towards discontinuing such negative thoughts. Many people experience these overwhelming negative thoughts because of intrusive thoughts.

The book has outlined a seven step process in applying CBT techniques, and getting the most from this practiced concept. For someone who lives with anxiety and PTSD, I have had much experience with practicing CBT. This book is organized well, and gets the point across in a very direct way. Easily organized, and easily understood, I enjoyed reading this book, and find that it makes a great tool for almost anyone. I give this book 5/5.
