The 10-Step Depression Relief Workbook: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Approach details the core concepts and strategies from CBT. It also integrates mindfulness and acceptance approaches as well as exercise and healthy eating. Readers will find helpful information on the nature and forms of depression, measures for assessing depression, tools to reduce their symptoms and resources for additional help. Along the way, they will be provided with guidance on how to overcome various obstacles. They’ll learn how to increase their motivation, identify their problems, create a plan of action, and attack procrastination. Interspersed with this information are stories and examples from the lives of actual patients, making the concepts easier to understand—and relate to.

We’ve designed this book to be easy to read, with lots of practical examples. (many from our own lives), along with worksheets, quotes, and examples to get you started and keep you going. Remember: Depression is real. It is common. And it is serious. Fortunately, it is also highly treatable. We hope this book proves to be a helpful starting place.
