Retrain Your Brain – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in 7 Weeks


by Seth J. Gillihan (Author)

The groundbreaking 7-week plan for managing anxiety and depression using cognitive behavioral therapy 

Research has shown that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective techniques for finding relief from depression and anxiety. After 15 years of successfully treating patients using cognitive behavioral therapy, Psychologist Dr. Seth Gillihan developed this self-directed 7-week plan that teaches you practical CBT techniques that can help you feel better. 

Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you identify and replace thought patterns and behaviors that aren’t working with new ones that work better. Whether feelings of depression and anxiety occur constantly or sporadically, you can create a CBT tool kit to help you get through those feelings and realize your full potential. 

The unique weekly structure of this therapy workbook is designed so each activity builds on the previous week’s work as you apply these techniques in your daily life. Relatable, real-life examples make the information and activities more accessible to CBT newcomers. 

Take the first step to finding relief and discovering the power of cognitive behavioral therapy today, with help from Retrain Your Brain.
