The answers to these questions - and the path to lasting change in your life - lie in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a well-tested collection of practical techniques for managing moods and modifying undesirable behaviors through self-awareness, critical analysis, and goal-oriented change. CBT illuminates the links between thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical health and uses those connections to develop concrete plans for self-improvement. Built on a solid foundation of neurological and behavioral research, CBT is an approach almost anyone can use for promoting greater mental health and improving quality of life.
In 24 engaging half-hour lectures, you'll build a robust and effective self-improvement toolkit with the expert guidance of Professor Satterfield of the University of California, San Francisco. You will explore CBT's roots in Socratic and stoic philosophy, build a toolkit of CBT techniques, and hear about the latest research about its outcomes. Additionally this intriguing and practical course allows you to take on the role of medical student, physician, psychologist, and patient.
Throughout the course you'll explore issues that cause people to seek out therapy. In some cases you'll get to hear Dr. Satterfield working with a patient, and in others you'll be delving into research to find what causes issues and how CBT helps to resolve them.
Everyone has something about their life that they would like to improve. With the tools in CBT and the desire to make your situation better, you can create lasting change in your life.

Amazing course - both theory and practice
This is one of the best non-fiction audiobooks I have ever purchased, and hands-down better than any self-help book I have ever used. (I include even David Burns' classic Feeling Good, which is great but takes a lot more effort to get into and apply). Professor Satterfield strikes a wonderful balance between very clear and concrete practical guidance for daily life and setting out the theoretical underpinnings of the CBT model and carefully explaining the evidence base for the various techniques. The case studies are very illuminating and Professor Satterfield does a great job of avoiding a reductive or overly schematised picture of the challenges of human existence within the CBT framework. Highly, highly recommended.

Great addition to my counseling practice
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I highly recommend this book to psychology practitioners and motivated clients. It is well organized and well read. I listen while I do my daily exercise (walking). I often end up writing emails to myself to remember to look up certain topics when I arrive home.
What did you like best about this story?
This is a difficult question to answer because I like it all so much. I think the narration was particularly outstanding. The narrator is straightforward and cites references or appropriate links when needed. I have found some audible narrator of scientific information try to be funny or cute, and it ends up distracting from the narration. This is not the case with Dr. Satterfield.
Which character – as performed by Professor Jason M. Satterfield – was your favorite?
Himself. He narrates the book based on his own research.

Not what I was looking for.
I found it somewhat boring. There's good information here but listening to the exchanges between the therapist and the patient didn't seem like the best way to present it. There's nothing terribly wrong with this. It just didn't interest me.
