Cognitive Behavioural Therapy For Dummies, 2nd Edition will help readers identify negative and unhealthy modes of thinking which have been holding them back from the changes they want. CBT can help readers overcome anxiety and depression, boost self-esteem, lose weight, manage anger, beat addiction or simply improve their outlook in both their professional and personal lives.  The straightforward and practical advice will help readers apply CBT principles to their own lives, whatever issues they'd like to work on. With 20% new and refreshed content, this second edition will provide new material on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and new chapters on how to beat addiction and how to overcome body image issues (body dysmorphia).
