Padesky’s CBT Books & Tech Recommendations

This is a work in progress. We continue to add/remove from our inventory.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is one of the most successful, empirically based psychotherapies of all time. It has been shown to be highly effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, health worries, eating disorders, substance abuse, and a wide variety of medical disorders. It has also been shown to be effective as an adjunctive treatment to medication for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
