Irving Kirsch Quotes

Many of the benefits of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) can be obtained without going into therapy. There are a number of self-help books, CDs and computer programs that have been used to treat depression and some of these have been tested in clinical trials with positive results. I can particularly recommend these two books. One is Control Your Depression, the lead author of which is Peter Lewinsohn, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon ... The other book that I can recommend with confidence is Feeling Good by the psychiatrist David Burns. Control Your Depression emphasizes behavioral techniques like increasing pleasant activities, improving social skills and learning to relax. Feeling Good puts greater emphasis on changing the way people think about themselves. But both books include both cognitive and behavioral techniques.
