Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Those Who Say They Can’t is a comprehensive aid for people who stifle their personal freedom, creativity, and autonomy by telling themselves they "can’t" do things such as: take risks; make commitments; control their anger or fear; avoid intrusive thoughts; tolerate disappointment; accept challenges, make decisions, and more. This accessible workbook concisely explains how to identify, refute, and replace "I can’t" with uplifting and liberating virtues. Worksheets include systematic exercises on coping with shame, rational-emotive imagery, reframing, mindfulness, behavioral planning, and taking risks. Each chapter tackles a particular type of self-defeating "I can’t" and is complete with an assessment inventory that helps users/clients identify which chapter/s they need to work on.

This workbook provides essential self-help for those struggling with disempowering thoughts and can also be used by mental health professionals in working with their clients.

Reviews and Endorsements

"Think you can’t overcome your troubles and fears? Maybe you’ve given up too soon. Dr. Cohen skillfully disrobes fictions behind can’t do thinking misery using modern gold standard cognitive-behavioral therapy. Allying you with profound thinkers from the past, he shows you how to use their insights to free yourself from can’t do cerebral prisons. Finally, each chapter applies to overcome procrastination. So don’t delay. Read the book. See how long it takes to substitute, I can do this, for fictional I can’t thinking" - Dr. Bill Knaus, is a pioneer in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, former Director of Postdoctoral Training in Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and author of The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Anger and The Procrastination Workbook.
