…for mental health

Research shows that the use of cognitive-behavioral skills (i.e., changing your thoughts and behaviors. such as suggested by the Satisfaction Skills and other strategies) can be as or more effective in treating depression than using medications, and also can benefit other problems, like opioid and substance abuse.

Typically, a  cognitive-behavioral therapist will interview a patient, then prescribe a tailored program to change thoughts and initiate new behaviors.

The Satisfaction Skills (see illustration at right) can reinforce this process, by providing a “tool-kit” of cognitive-behavioral strategies.  These can be special help to friends and family of the patient.  They also can be used by the patient to address other problems, or prevent new ones.
