The Introduction to Coping series offers valuable guidance for those seeking help for emotional or psychological problems such as depression and anxiety. Each book gives useful background information and suggests techniques to change unhelpful patterns of behaviour and thinking using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques. CBT is recommended internationally to treat a wide range of emotional, psychological and physical conditions including eating disorders.
