Padesky brief biography

cover of 2nd Edition Mind Over MoodOver the past 20 years, Mind Over Mood (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995) has been used widely as an adjunct and guide for individual and group therapy in outpatient, inpatient, and forensic settings. Dr. Padesky demonstrates how to use the new 2nd edition client skills manual flexibly in both therapy and community education settings to improve dissemination of empirically supported change principles.

The newly released (October, 2015) Mind Over Mood (2nd edition)

  • integrates empirically supported methods of acceptance, mindfulness, imagery, and positive psychology
  • with an updated presentation of behavioral activation, relaxation, and cognitive restructuring approaches for mood management.

Recent research is presented regarding use of Mind Over Mood that highlights the need to know which client skills practices lead to improvement in symptoms and which can actually lead to worsening of symptoms.

[Padesky] shows how the structure of this new edition is designed to make it easier for therapists to individualize the order of chapter use to match evidence-based protocols and how to use mood measures (included in the book) to track client progress.


  • TO TEACH common mood-management skills in different orders for different presenting issues in accordance with empirically supported change principles
  • TWO CLINICAL SITUATIONS in which it is advantageous to link cognitive restructuring, acceptance, and positive psychology interventions
  • PRINCIPLES for integrating a skills manual into therapy and guided self-help activities

ACTION ITEM PRE-WORKSHOP: The NEW 2nd edition of Mind Over Mood will be referenced extensively during the workshop so we recommend that you bring a copy or share one on site with a colleague.
