Overcoming Paranoid & Suspicious Thoughts is a self-help guide written by practising clinicians, based on their clinical experience and groundbreaking research. Based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), readers are helped to analyse and understand their suspicious thoughts, to step back from them and observe them, seeing them for what they really are, and then to learn a number of different strategies to help manage and eventually eradicate them.
This useful self-help book is in two parts.
- In Part One, the authors explain what suspicious thoughts are, how they come about, and what it feels like to experience them. The aim is to help readers understand their problem, as an essential step towards conquering it.
- In Part Two, this understanding is built upon to present six practical steps to help the reader cope with their paranoia and suspicions.
