Happy New Year from Psychology Tools (2nd January 2024)!
Somehow, it’s the beginning of a new year already. As we start 2024, we’re taking a moment to look back over the last 12 months, and say a huge thank you to all our members.
2023 was another busy year. Our resources were downloaded by members over 2.000,000 times, supporting countless clients and clinicians all over the world. We hope you found a moment to appreciate the impact you’ve made, and took some time to reset during the hectic holiday season.
Thank you for being part of the Psychology Tools community!
Our most popular resources of 2023
Here are the most downloaded tools of the year…did you use them all?
4. New Audio Collection: Developing Self Compassion
In March we released a 30-track audio collection guiding clients through an evidence-based programme of Compassionate Mind Training. Developed with Dr Chris Irons, one of the leading international trainers in CFT, the collection was designed to help clients build their own effective compassion practice through knowledge, theory, and new skills development.
3. Expanded Understanding... Series: Death Anxiety, Fears and Phobias
We continued to grow our popular psychoeducation series for common mental health conditions with the addition of Understanding Death Anxiety, and Understanding Fears and Phobias. Friendly and explanatory they are comprehensive sources of information, designed to help clients understand more about their condition.
2. New Treatments That Work: The Unified Protocol
Building on the huge popularity of the Treatments That Work series, in October we added 2 new books to the library. The UP is an emotion focused, transdiagnostic treatment approach based on existing CBT components. Designed to treat multiple common mental health conditions by targeting core emotional processes, it can be used to address co-occurring conditions simultaneously. It’s definitely worth a look if you haven’t seen it already.
1. Most downloaded in 2023: Cognitive Distortions Series
This new series covering 20 of the most clinically-relevant cognitive distortions was a key focus for us last year, and we are thrilled it’s been so popular with members. Designed to help clients and therapists work more effectively with common thinking biases, this series of problem-specific handouts includes all-or-nothing thinking, hindsight bias, jumping to conclusions, prompts for challenging your negative thinking, and many more. The series is available to all members – whatever paid plan you are on.
How can I access these resources?
For instant access to any of these resources and hundreds more, just upgrade or sign up for one of our paid plans and start downloading materials straight away. There are 3 membership levels to choose from, so there’s something for everyone.
What’s in store for 2024?
We have lots planned for this year…coming up first is a Values and ACT launch which we are excited to share, followed by a new series on schemas and a discussion with Stephen Barton on difficult-to-treat depression.
It’s great to have you with us.
