No, I am in school. Since I am in Korea I can not practice without my Masters and license. Once we return in 2014 to the states I'll be ready for my practicum and internship finally. Someday I hope to attend the CBT training at Beck Institute. I also like Rogers and feel Person Centered Therapy is a must, plus I like Reality Therapy but I am partial to CBT.

And it seems to be one of the only things that works to make depression less severe.

Welcome. Are you a practicing therapist? I also have studied Aaron Beck and Carl Rogers and others and use CBT daily in my work. What I like is that it is all very practical.

I suffer with depression and use CBT as well. I love it. I will have to look for that workbook, didn't realize they had one. I'm more of an active, hands on person, than a reader!

As for the fatigue, I've had counselors and docs blame the depression, hysterectomy at 19, kids, stress, school, etc. Regardless of what I change or the causes, I've lived with it since my teens and it is only getting worse so I'm hoping for some true answers with helpful treatment.

Thank you for the welcome!

Welcome Kristal! The fatigue could be partially explained by having three teens, two dogs a cat and a husband and living far from home! But seriously, I hope the doc can help.

I had heard off Aaron Beck and CBT before I found Judith Beck. My son studied psychology, and he also suffered from depression, so he learned a lot from Aaron Beck's writing.

I really love the approach in the Beck Diet Solution. I personally used the workbook, but all versions of the book are good.

I have not bought this book yet but intend to eventually. I'm not a reader but I do follow them on facebook. I LOVE Aaron Beck and the CBT methods. I am working on my Masters in Mental Health Counseling and much of my focus is on CBT. It is incredible and proven effective for all eating disorders.

I am 35, married, have 3 teens (19, 18, 16), 2 dogs, 1 cat, and I live in Korea but from Texas. I struggle every day especially with fatigue. I believe fatigue is what keeps the rest of my goals from being accomplished but the doc is working on trying to figure out why I'm so drained.

I am glad to be here.
