Structured around these evidence-based principles, this user-friendly guide will help you learn CBT and deliver it to your clients in the most optimal way. CBT is a popular and proven-effective treatment for several mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anger problems. However, there are no evidence-based learning techniques to teach it—until now. This simple, pragmatic guide offers everything you need to know about CBT: what it is, how it works, and how to implement it in session. CBT Made Simple provides a user-friendly, practical approach to learning CBT using up-to-the-minute teaching methods and learning tools—in particular, the “effective adult learning model,” which promotes interactive learning, experiential learning, and self-reflection. Each chapter presents key elements of CBT in clear, accessible language, and includes client dialogues—including explanations of the therapist’s thinking process in relation to various interventions—and clinical examples. Practical exercises are incorporated throughout, enabling you to practice and consolidate your learning. In addition, each chapter mimics the structure of an actual CBT session. If you are a clinician or student interested in learning more about CBT, this book—a new addition to the New Harbinger Made Simple series that includes ACT Made Simple and DBT Made Simple—has everything you need to hit the ground running. Why not make it a part of your professional library?

Enlightenment Made Simple is a concise and slightly irreverent synthesis of the basics of ancient spiritual wisdom and modern psycho-spirituality. An expert researcher has summarized the prominent literature pertaining to the “big questions of life,” revealing the “secret” of enlightenment. Enlightenment Made Simple provides people with an understanding of their true nature, their power to create, and how, ultimately, there is nothing to fear. Enlightenment Made Simple is the culmination of a lifelong research project into the “big questions” of life. Greek philosophers called this knowledge “theosophia” or “divine wisdom.” It has been referred to as “the perennial philosophy”, “the great tradition’, and “the wisdom of the ages.” Enlightenment Made Simple, explains this ancient wisdom, and the mechanics of emotions essential to spiritual and emotional well being. It includes critical psychological information missing from books like The Power of Now and The Secret needed to make those techniques work. Most importantly, Enlightenment Made Simple reveals the “secret” of enlightenment capable of providing release from fear, pain and suffering.
