This is a list of books and workbooks for mental health professionals.
I put them into categories: meaning; relationships; Christian; habits; mindful eating; anxiety; trauma; happiness.
I’ve used most of these when working with clients, they are informative and really help facilitate the process. Some of the worksheets in the books, I’ve had my clients complete as homework and then we talk about it during the next session. A few clients have actually purchased a book for themselves, to read on their own.
Overall, it has been a positive experience using these.
Maybe you will see one that you would like.
