The book Mind Over Mood recently showed up in an episode of the Netflix series, Orange is the New Black. We were surprised to see it there and wonder if any of the characters are using it. It sure looks like the counselor refers to it since it is always at his side.

Orange is the New Black - Season 2 Episode 10

In this scene, Mind Over Mood is sitting on the counselor's desk (bottom left).

"A Guide to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)"

" ... there is no clear line between normal and abnormal. What actually defines somebody having a disorder or a significant problem is the extent to which it interferes with their life."
-- Professor Paul Salkovskis

This video features a discussion of CBT for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder by British clinical psychologist Professor Paul Salkovskis. He was director of the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma in London when this video was produced. Professor Salkovskis is currently Professor of Clinical Psychology and Applied Science at the University of Bath in Bath, England.

" CBT, in my view, isn't just about taking bad stuff away. It's actually about making it possible for people to reclaim their lives in terms of the good things that they want to happen."
-- Professor Paul Salkovskis

The Doctor is In
article date 09/01/09

Daniel B. Smith offers an illuminating review of Aaron T. Beck, M.D., the founder of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). This very articulate article captures Beck's spirit and scientific commitment. The author does a terrific job of capturing a complex story and telling it with appropriate dramatic impact.

"In 2006, Beck won the Lasker Award, the most prestigious scientific honor in the United States, often referred to as the "American Nobel." In 2007, he was short-listed for the actual Nobel ... Beck's enormous success stems in large part from CBT's pragmatism and efficiency."

Combo Treatment Best for Anxiety Disorder in Kids
Zoloft, cognitive behavior therapy also work well alone, study finds
(article date 10/30/08)

This is a popular press review of this very significant study. Read it carefully - there are options. Medication plus CBT provided improvement in 81% of the subjects. However, CBT alone helped 60%. If you do not want your child taking medication, start with CBT. Medication can be added if progress is not being made. Medication alone resulted in improvement in 55% of the subjects.

The original research paper (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Sertraline, or a Combination in Childhood Anxiety) was published in the New England Journal of Medicine [Published at www.nejm.org October 30, 2008 (10.1056/NEJMoa0804633]

Think Thin to Get Thin

An interview with Dr. Judith Beck, the Author of the Beck Diet Solution

 "... perhaps the best diet book ever to focus on the psychology of permanent weight loss. In short, it doesn't tell you what foods to eat or avoid. Instead, it tells you how to stick to a healthy eating plan of your own choice "for good" by changing the way you talk to yourself when confronted with temptation, cravings and the inevitable dietary lapses."
