The Depression & Bipolar Workbook
This is the book I wish I had written!! Chris Aiken is a psychiatrist and psychotherapist whose work focuses on natural and lifestyle approaches to mood disorders. He is the director of The Mood Treatment Centre and editor in chief of The Carlat Psychiatry report.
Here he offers 30 techniques to change the body and the brain in ways that medications can’t – written from a clinical perspective to help patients manage symptoms with cognitive and behavioural strategies.
The innovative and drug-free practices in this workbook guide you step-by-step to stabilise mood, improve sleep, find focus, and manage repetitive worries and rumination. Lots of great worksheets all taken from the latest research in mood treatment.
Written for therapists and clients alike, learn how to recognise your unique symptoms of depression and bipolar and match them with the latest advances in CBT, light and dark therapy, diet and sleep techniques, and strategies to fix out-of-sync biological clocks. This is the mood-disorder aid that I have been waiting for!!
