- We can order this
Although research supports the use of cognitive behavioral therapy to address the symptoms of menopause, this is the first book to explain how readers can use this approach to calm hot flashes, stop mood swings in their tracks, and manage other common physical symptoms. The Cognitive-Behavioral Workbook for Menopause can be used as an adjunctive treatment to hormone replacement therapy and herbal remedies, or may be effectively used on its own.
This evidence-based program works by helping readers understand their symptoms and reduce the psychological self-talk that makes physical symptoms of menopause even worse. By reducing the anxiety about menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, readers reduce the duration and intensity of these symptoms. Because menopause can also affect women's mental health, the workbook includes help for menopausal depression, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings. It also features information on hormone replacement therapy and supplements that can help. This workbook is an essential resource for any menopausal woman seeking to regain control over her body, health, and mood.
