Jennifer Guest is an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and has an honours degree in Art and Design. She is a clinical supervisor and counsellor for Relate, a charity that provides counselling services, and has her own private practice in Yorkshire, UK. Her latest work, The CBT Art Workbook for Coping with Depression, helps those understand and manage their symptoms of depression using the principles of CBT.
The activities follow the framework of a typical CBT course: how it works, looking at the nature of depression, linking thoughts, feelings, behaviour and physiology cycles, exploring different levels of thinking and beliefs, and identifying goals and future planning. It presents these theories in an accessible way so that you are familiar with the foundations of CBT you will be using in the worksheets. You can complete them by writing or drawing, alongside the opportunity to colour in parts of the pages as they consider ideas.
Suitable for adults in solo or group work, this is an excellent resource to use as a standalone resource or in conjunction with professional therapy to deal with depression.
