Patient. Fix thyself - Exploring CBT at

While I work on the next installment of the Depression: Will or Wallow? series, I’d like to share a fabulous article about Cognitive-behavioral Therapy with you.

In April of 2007, Forbes magazine did an investigation on CBT and whether it was effective or not, titled “Patient Fix Thyself”. It cited several studies as well as interviewed prominent practitioners of the technique, including the gentleman who invented it.

Reading the article will give you some much needed background to aid you in understanding my philosophy and how I can advocate will over wallowing for depressives.
