The CBT Art Workbook for Coping with Depression.
Author(s): Jennifer Guest.
Edition: First (1st).
Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
Using the principles of CBT, these illustrated worksheets help clients to understand and manage their symptoms of depression.
The activities follow the framework of a typical CBT course: how it works, looking at the nature of depression, linking thoughts, feelings, behaviour and physiology cycles, exploring different levels of thinking and beliefs, and identifying goals and future planning. It presents these theories in an accessible way so that clients are familiar with the foundations of CBT they will be using in the worksheets. They can complete them by writing or drawing, alongside the opportunity to colour in parts of the pages as they consider ideas.
Suitable for adults in individual or group work, this is an excellent resource to use as a standalone resource or in conjunction with professional therapy to deal with depression.
