You aren't what you think For teens with negative thinking habits, a licensed psychologist and a health journalist offer cognitive restructuring--a simple and effective cognitive behavioral approach to help you break free from the nine most common negative thinking habits that typically result in feeling sad, worried, angry, and stressed.

This workbook offers a powerful technique called cognitive restructuring to help you reframe your thoughts, regulate your emotions, become a more flexible thinker, and stop letting your thoughts define who you are and how you feel. You'll learn to target the nine specific kinds of negative thinking habits that can cause you to worry or feel bad, such as the I can't habit, the doom and gloom habit, the all or nothing habit, the jumping to conclusions habit, and more

   Excellent Resource for Teens
As a psychologist who specializes in treating teens with anxiety disorders and depression, I know first hand how difficult it is to find resources that are both accurate and readable. We know that how we think impacts how we feel, and by changing our thinking to be more positive we can feel less stressed and happier, Bustle says. Teen readers and parents of teens should read this book.

   Not written in teen friendly language
I purchased this book because I use several others by the same publisher. The language in this book is in no way written for teenagers, except for those with a college-level reading level. A lot of the language in this work would not be familiar to teenagers, it's too sophisticated. What I find most disturbing is that the book gives a confusing structure to CBT. I used to assess with a 14-year-old who is of average intelligence, it wasway over his head, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   Works!!! Worth every penny and then some
The book was purchased for my 12 year old daughter. The day it came, she started working right away on it. The doctor said she started noticing a difference in her by the second day. The doctor said the problem was "getting better every day."

   material is not very engaging
The beginning about thinking errors is helpful, and I like the way the workbook is organized, with each chapter corresponding to a thinking error. But the way the material is presented, I believe the clients just did not connect with it. The workbook also does not do a good job of connecting the material to real life situations, and the questions it asks are just not engaging.

   Great for Self-Help or Therapist Guided Exercises
This is a wonderful addition to any self-help library. The authors demonstrate a deep understanding of cognitive behavioral therapy, and explain concepts in a developmentally appropriate manner without jargon. The book helps teens understand their thoughts, identify how they are being upset by negative thinking, and provide practical steps on how to break the cycle of self-defeating thoughts. The exercises are relevant and helpful, empowering adolescents to take control of their thoughts and emotions, and to take action in a way that maximizes potential success. I've used it with my CBT patients, who reported it was very helpful and down to earth, said Dr. Julie D'Antonio, a licensed clinical hypnotherapist.

   Kid and teen friendly and useful workbook to help address negative thinking
As a clinical psychologist working in childhood anxiety and OCD, I am always on the lookout for good workbooks. Many kids and teens dismiss workbooks that are available because the examples do not reflect their experience or their complexity. Dr. Alvord's books and workshops show her to be someone who talks with kids, likes kids, and works with kids. And she knows how to help them find their way out. Dr. Alvord and her co-author Ann McGrath add a book that is needed, she said. Many kids or teens have negative thinking that is a source of their difficultlies either with no diagnosis or in the context of depression and anxiety. By offering separate sections on the different thinking traps kids, teens, parents or therapiist can focus on practical advice. Thanks for the help!

   Well thought out, accessible resource for teens
The problem is, the authors have divided it into nine categories: positive, negative, neutral, and hopeless. Rather than focusing on the next chapter, which may not apply to them, teens can focus on the one chapter that applies to them. Each chapter has helpful and, importantly, exercises readers for doing the work. The writing was very smart in its approach -- the authors use bullet points and charts to create a very accessible style, the reviewer said. Very smart approach, highly recommended.

   Excellent!
The book is presented in a concise manner, illustrated with interesting and varied examples of the concepts. The easy to use activities follow are engaging and extremely helpful, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The book effectively explores negative thinking across diagnosis and therefore can be used by any teen struggling with distorted thoughts. Mary Alvord has provided a very well written, user-friendly book that offers teens hope and a path to a healthier future.

   This book is easy to follow and has insightful and age-appropriate activities for ...
Dr. Alvord has helped my son tremendously with his academics. I am a school social worker and will be using this book with my students this fall. Also, check out her resilience builder book, which is also available at no cost today. Dr. Alvord, we thank you for all your work!

   Helpful to families, teens and any age group
By the time you are finished, you will be well on your way to becoming a more realistic and proactive individual. In "Success: The Seven Steps to Overcome Fears and Strive," Alvord and McGrath offer practical steps to overcome obstacles and anxieties and provide a clear path to a more confident life.
