Tool Description

This self-help workbook; 'Practical Problem Solving' provides information and techniques to help tackle the practical problems that students may face. The workbook has been adapted, for the University of Leeds Student mental health (with the author's permission, and guidance) from a larger book called 'Overcoming Depression: A five areas approach', by Dr Chris Williams (2001; Arnold Publishers). 'Overcoming Depression' is a series of structured self-help workbooks for use by people experiencing depression. The workbook provides access to the proven Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach, which uses carefully sequenced series of questions, designed to bring about change in how the person thinks and in what they do in order to improve how they feel. Chris Williams is a recognised expert and trainer in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and works as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychological Medicine at the Univerrsity of Glasgow. The workbook is copyrighted to Dr C.J. Williams and University of Leeds Innovations Ltd (ULIS).
