Overcoming Mood Swings 2nd Edition: A self-help guide using cognitive behavioural techniques (Overcoming Books) (Paperback)
Most of us know about extreme highs or lows. For some people, however, emotional extremes can seriously disrupt our lives, either because they happen too frequently or because the mood swings are intense and accompanied by other symptoms of depression or mania, such as changes in energy and activity levels.
This valuable self-help guide teaches tried-and-tested strategies that will help anyone troubled by mood swings to effectively identify and manage their moods, and achieve a more stable and comfortable emotional balance. It includes:
- Information on depression and mania
- A step-by-step, structured self-help programme and monitoring sheets
Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.
