Many therapists turn to self-help manuals for ideas of how to teach skills that can boost client progress. But how do these ideas get tailored to fit the needs of an individual client? Through case examples and guided participant exercises, Padesky demonstrates how therapists can make therapy more effective by selectively matching skills taught to particular client moods and using mood measures to track progress. She shows therapists how to strategically assign chapters from the 2nd Edition of Mind over Mood (Greenberger & Padesky, 2016) which includes more than 60 worksheets that help clients learn mood-management skills drawn from CBT, mindfulness, positive psychology, acceptance therapies, and happiness research.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Identify the two skills with the strongest evidence supporting their helpfulness for depression.
  2. Explain why thought records are not a primary intervention for anxiety disorders.
  3. Name one type of client problem that is likely to benefit from acceptance methods.
