When you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, it feels like you’ll never get better. You’ll always feel this way. It feels like the dark clouds will never lift. Or the anxiety, worry and restlessness are permanent. Understandably, you feel hopeless and helpless. You feel stuck.
The great news is that you can get better. There are many resources that can help. For instance, workbooks can be incredibly valuable. You can use a workbook while seeing a therapist or attending group therapy. Or you can use a workbook on your own.
A classic workbook is Mind Over Mood: Change How You Feel by Changing the Way You Think. This comprehensive workbook features powerful strategies and tools for overcoming depression, anxiety, anger, guilt and shame.
Mind Over Mood is written by clinical psychologists Dennis Greenberger, Ph.D, and Christine A. Padesky, Ph.D. Greenberger is the founder and director of the Anxiety and Depression Center in Newport Beach, Calif. Padesky is the cofounder of the Center for Cognitive Therapy in Huntington Beach, Calif.
