"As mental health providors, we are constantly looking for ways to help clients engage their Cognitive Behavioral Therapy outside of sessions. The CBT Deck offers quick, effective interventions with the dual benefit of symptom reduction and reinforcement of CBT principles. For those simply looking to enhance their health and productivity, The CBT Deck is a powerful tool for growth, providing dedicated time and space for reinforcement of habits that perpetuate wellness."
Ben Hunter, MD, Psychiatrist & Medical Director of Outpatient Services, Skyland Trail

“Dr. Seth Gillihan is a master at converting the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy skills that are traditionally worked on in the clinician’s office into a portable format that can be carried in everyday life. His three part framework of “Think, Act, Be” helps keep front and center the message that we all need to meld together mental shifts, behavioral shifts and mindfulness. The techniques offered in this card deck are based on the soundest science, shaped into easy and memorable takeaways. The cards are informative enough that they’ll make sense to readers who are new to a concept, and they’re concise enough for those therapist or clients who are experienced in CBT and want to use them as reminders. If you try even a portion of the experiments included on the cards you’ll dramatically improve your ability to overcome your mindless defaults, and shift your thinking at will to choose whatever mindset and behavioral approach is most ideal in any given situation.”
Alice Boyes, PhD, author of The Anxiety Toolkit and The Healthy Mind Toolkit

"This is an invaluable set of practical therapeutic activities that I am confident your client will find most helpful. I routinely encourage my clients to use skills such as these, and now Dr. Seth Gillihan has organized these essential tools into a single, easy-to-use compendium. I highly recommend The CBT Deck for both therapist reference and client use."
David M. Pratt, PhD, MSW, Director, Mood Management Program

"We know clients get more out of therapy when they can practice the skills they learn in between session. The CBT Deck gives you a wide range of effective behavioral, cognitive, and mindfulness tools so you can leverage the power of your sessions and prescribe customized strategies for each client’s unique needs."
Richard Sears, PsyD, ABPP, author of teh CBT & Mindfulness Toolbox
