Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You’re feeling sad, anxious, or angry all the time, and you’re thinking about seeing a therapist. But there’s one problem: You don’t know the first thing about therapists or whatever it is they get up to in those dimly lit offices. You ask your friends, your HMO, you thumb through the phonebook—but there are as many opinions as there are MFTs, LCSWs, and Ph.D.s waiting to add you to their appointment books. What are you, the curious and confused, to do?

Don’t panic! Therapy 101 can guide you through the twists and turns of the mental health maze. You’ll learn about the different kinds of mental health professionals and the services they offer. You’ll explore the various kinds of therapy and learn which therapies are best for which problems. Filled with curious and entertaining tidbits about the colorful history of psychology, Therapy 101 is as entertaining as it is informative. With this book in your back pocket, you’ll be able to make the most of your time on the couch.

Synopsis:

Therapy 101, a light-hearted, fun look at modern psychology's most effective (and most insane-sounding!) treatment methods, introduces readers to the human mind, its ailments, and their treatment-a great resource for those considering therapy or just curious about how it works.

Synopsis:

Do you feel anxious, depressed, or angry? Are you tired of seeing your therapist week after week and still not feeling better? Do you wish you knew all the treatment options available to you? Do you want to know which therapies are clinically proven to help your specific condition? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you.

Therapy 101 will teach readers about proven-effective, modern treatments for psychological disorders, how the treatments work, what problems they are most likely to help, and how and why these modern therapies differ from classic psychology, such as Jung and Freud. Equipped with this resource, you'll be in a powerful position to take control of your own mental health care and make important positive changes in your life. Includes ACT, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and other therapies on the horizon.

Chapters will feature informational pull quotes, sidebars, lists, and boxed text.
