Positive Affect Treatment for Depression and Anxiety: Workbook is intended to be used by clients with clinical presentation of depression, anxiety or a loss of interest in activities. Results show that Positive Affect Treatment not only improves positive mood state but also decreases depression and anxiety. The treatment works by increasing reward sensitivity and encouraging positive emotions, rather than focusing only on reducing negative emotions. Self-assessment quizzes, homework exercises, and interactive forms allow clients to become active participants in their own treatment, whilst also monitoring progress and keeping a record of symptoms. This workbook will be an indispensable resource for individuals who wish to effectively and efficiently regain interest and enjoyment in their usual activities while improving their quality of life.


"Anhedonia is one of the two cardinal symptoms of depression and existing treatments either pharmacological or psychotherapeutic are better at normalizing negative affect than elevating positive affect. The authors of Positive Affect Treatment for Depression and Anxiety have succeeded in doing what nobody else has done in helping patients regain a sense of joy and wellbeing in life. This could be a gamechanger."

--Steven D. Hollon, Ph.D., Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University
