The Solving Life’s Problems Workbook offers you a self-help way to acquire skills necessary at the moments when you are experiencing difficulties in your life and reacting to the events with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or anger. This workbook is aimed at equipping you with tools that will help you manage your life through controlling your emotions and thoughts. All the tools proposed in this workbook are grounded on the principles of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Problem-Solving Therapy (PST) that are both based on a cognitive-behavioural way focused on improving skills to cope with stressful life experiences and to foster general behavioural competence.
Going through this workbook’s activity exercises, you will have to complete worksheets which might be helpful for you to learn and apply offered CBT techniques. The structure of the workbook has been done in such a way that you could spend more time on the activities that seem more useful to you to solve your problem. The completion of all the exercises is like any work you need to acquire new skills. Be prepared to dedicate more time than you expect in the beginning to learn and practice!
