We are pleased that BBC Radio 4 (Woman's Hour) asked Dr Christine A. Padesky to talk about Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). Specifically how CBT skills can help people during times of stress. These skills are useful at all times (holidays included)! The interview was first broadcast December 22, 2015.
"Perfectionism is almost always a trap because it robs us of whatever chances we have in life for joy. The antidote to perfectionism is really putting value on small positives that come our way." (Padesky quote from BBC interview)

We are pleased to report that Mind Over Mood is listed in the Reading Well Books on Prescription program in the United Kingdom.
The books have all been recommended by health professionals and have been tried and tested by people with experience of living with the conditions. The program is "endorsed by health professionals and supported by public libraries." They even provide a "core book list of accredited titles recommended by healthcare professionals that covers a range of common mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias and eating disorders."
The following video describes the Reading Well Books on Prescription program. Mind Over Mood appears at 31 seconds, 47 seconds, 2:09, and throughout. (video date 4/30/2013)

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 looks like the counselor refers to it since it is always at his side.
In this scene, Mind Over Mood is lying open on the counselor's desk (bottom left).
