Teenage years can be a particularly challenging time. There are lots of changes happening – physical, social and mental, and emotional ups and downs are common. Upsetting emotions can lead to self-defeating behaviours, such as avoidance, irritability, withdrawal and brooding.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an approach used by therapists all over the world to help people learn to think in a healthy and balanced way, and to bounce back more quickly from stressful events. It provides techniques to help overcome stress, negative emotions and self-defeating behaviour. This book contains plenty of real-life examples, practical tools and exercises.
