The Role of Self-Help Practice Exercises in Mental Health Interventions

  • Luciano L’Abate


A parallel advance in the field of mental health, in line within the advent of DW and homework assignments, has been the growth of self-help mental health sourcebooks or practice exercises. The practice exercises entail participants doing DW and receiving verbal or written feedback from professionals (L’Abate, 1991, 1992, 2001, 2002, 2004a, 2004b, 2007a, 2007b, 2007c; L’Abate & Goldstein, 2007). Many practice exercises for individuals are based on, and derived directly from, lists of symptoms found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition (DSM-IV), as indicated in the Acknowledgments.
