Steven Luper analyzes the nature of happiness and compares two strategies of pursuit: the western approach known as 'optimizing', in which we try to bring about the satisfaction of our desires, and the eastern method known as 'adapting', in which we transform our desires so that nothing can hurt us. "Luper's clearly written, yet heartfelt, book will serve to widen the narrow horizons of contemporary moral debate, and not just within academia." -- David E. Cooper University of Durham

Is the emotionally disturbed person a victim of forces beyond his awareness, over which he has no control? This is the belief on which neuropsychiatry, psychoanalysis, and behavior therapy are all based. But what if this premise is wrong? What if a person’s psychological difficulties stem from his own erroneous assumptions and faulty concepts of himself and the world? Such a person can be helped to recognize and correct distortions in thinking that cause his emotional disturbance. Now one of the founders of cognitive therapy has written a clear, comprehensive guide to its theory and practice, highlighting such important concepts as: · Learning the meaning of hidden messages · Listening to your automatic thoughts · The role of sadness, anger, and anxiety · Understanding and overcoming phobias and depression · Applying the cognitive system of therapy to specific problems “A book by a significant contributor to our knowledge… immensely readable, logical, and coherent… This is Beck at his best.”—Psychiatry From the Trade Paperback edition.

This bestselling, classic work offers a definitive presentation of the theory and practice of cognitive therapy for depression. Aaron T. Beck and his associates set forth their seminal argument that depression arises from a "cognitive triad" of errors and from the idiosyncratic way that one infers, recollects, and generalizes. From the initial interview to termination, many helpful case examples demonstrate how cognitive-behavioral interventions can loosen the grip of "depressogenic" thoughts and assumptions. Guidance is provided for working with individuals and groups to address the full range of problems that patients face, including suicidal ideation and possible relapse.

This is a clear and thorough how-to book on short-term cognitive-behavioral treatment of depression. Following a complete assessment of the patient's suicidal risk, the authors outline an eight-session plan that includes both cognitive and behavioral components. Educating the patient about depression; examining the evidence and generating alternatives; teaching the patient how to self-monitor automatic thoughts, problem-solve, and establish a structure for each day are among the many treatment options presented. The goal of creating a positive spiral is facilitated by teaching the patient, according to individual need, such skills as assertiveness, relaxation techniques, and the management of anger and panic attacks. From the opening expression of supoort for what Aaron Beck has called 'collaborative empiricism' to the supplemental handouts on depression, reasoning, stress, and pleasurable activities, Drs. Klosko and Sanderson encompass the fundamentals of cognitive therapy with exceptional clarity.
