We've had a blast giving you free e-books over the last several months and we hope you've had a chance to take advantage of some of our amazing resources. After this week, Free E-Book Fridays will be taking a hiatus, but as always we will continue to update the blog regularly with original articles and interviews that highlight mental health trends geared specifically toward mental health professionals. If you have an idea or tip for the blog, please e-mail our editor, Jessica Dore.
Happy New Year! Today's free e-book should interest many of you across the field of behavioral medicine, whether you're a psychologist, psychiatrist, primary care physician, health care provider, health educator, social worker, or any other position that involves helping patients prevent disease, manage symptoms, and promote overall health.
We all have our own ways of handling stressful situations without letting emotions get the best of us, but some ways of coping work better than others. Short-term fixes that help us avoid or numb our emotions may temporarily alleviate sadness and anger, but can also end up causing anxiety, depression, chronic anger, and even physical health problems. If you struggle with overwhelming emotions and feel trapped by unhealthy patterns, this workbook is your ticket out.
Across the majority of contemporary psychotherapeutic modalities, mindfulness is used in one way or another. Whether your particular approach is entirely mindfulness-based or you simply incorporate mindfulness practice as a tool in treatment, there is an increasing demand for mental health professionals who can develop effective treatment protocols that incorporate mindfulness, suited to the needs of individual clients.
It's Friday again, our favorite day of the week and not just because it's the weekend. Every Friday, we go into the New Harbinger archives and dig up gems from our backlist that make great free e-books for 20 lucky winners.
