The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Menopause: A Step-By-Step Program for Overcoming Hot Flashes, Mood Swings, Insomnia, Anxiety, Depression, and Ot (New Harbinger Self-Help Workbook)by Sheryl Green
Synopses & Reviews
No woman experiences menopause in exactly the same way. Some may endure hot flashes, irritability, or mood swings, while others experience insomnia, anxiety, or even depression. And while you have probably heard about the benefits and drawbacks of hormone-replacement therapy (HRT), you should also know that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has been proven effective not only in treating the emotional symptoms of menopause, but the physical aspects as well.
With this workbook, you will learn exactly what is happening to your body during this transition and create a personalized treatment plan to help you feel better right away. Also included are easy-to-use worksheets and charts so that you can track and manage your symptoms and determine which treatments are working. Whether you are looking for an alternative to HRT, or simply want to supplement your treatment, this workbook is an essential resource for gaining control over your menopause symptoms.
This comprehensive program will help you:
In The Cognitive-Behavioral Workbook for Menopause, a notable team of psychology and women’s health experts presents a revolutionary cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) program for reducing the impact of hot flashes, mood swings, sexual problems, and sleep disruptions. This program may be used as an alternative or an adjunctive treatment to hormone replacement therapy.
Although research supports the use of cognitive behavioral therapy to address the symptoms of menopause, this is the first book to explain how readers can use this approach to calm hot flashes, stop mood swings in their tracks, and manage other common physical symptoms. The Cognitive-Behavioral Workbook for Menopause can be used as an adjunctive treatment to hormone replacement therapy and herbal remedies, or may be effectively used on its own. This evidence-based program works by helping readers understand their symptoms and reduce the psychological self-talk that makes physical symptoms of menopause even worse. By reducing the anxiety about menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, readers reduce the duration and intensity of these symptoms. Because menopause can also affect women’s mental health, the workbook includes help for menopausal depression, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings. It also features information on hormone replacement therapy and supplements that can help. This workbook is an essential resource for any menopausal woman seeking to regain control over her body, health, and mood.
