I have a friend who recommended CBT workbooks and cd's for  anxiety. They teach you  how to re-train your thinking and he says it really helped im. Anyone have POSITIVE experiences with this type fo training? If so, how long before you saw and results?

I don't know if I could have gotten better without my books and cds. They are a tremendous help. Depending on the person, you can feel better right away or in a few weeks. You must recognize your negative thinking and turn it around or you'll be lost in a vicious cycle. Give them a try, you've nothing to lose....and welcome!

I have never used cds or books, but I did receive the other kind of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) with a licensed counselor, and it has helped me alot! Sure, I still have anxiety, but I'm able to function now, which I never could before! Good luck!

Good Morning,

CBT has helped many members so thank you for bringing this topic up. 

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.

There is a free online CBT and I will post the link here for all.  You can work the program from home on your computer in your own time frame.
