Product description

Since its first publication in 1980, "The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook" has become the most indispensable resource for effective and up-to-date techniques for relaxing the body, calming the mind, and refreshing the spirit. Therapists recommend the book to their clients; readers pass it on to their friends. More than half a million copies have helped millions of people take the edge off their stressful lives and find the peace they need to foster happiness and success. The overwhelming popularity of this book is the result of its comprehensive yet simple and straightforward adaptation of all the most effective relaxation techniques.No other book offers easy-to-use, step-by-step instructions for using progressive relaxation, autogenics, self-hypnosis, visualization, mindfulness, acceptance, and more. This revision will significantly update and simplify this timeless classic. The authors provide the most proven-effective worry and anger models based on the latest research. They have simplified many of the chapters so that readers only get the best treatment methods in the most accessible manner. Two new chapters include "Facing Feelings", which focuses on mindfulness and acceptance, and "Coping with Anger". The chapter on time management will be revised to include information on how to unplug from our wealth of electronic communication conveniences when necessary. The book also includes an updated resources section and subject index.

Review quote

This comprehensive workbook deserves to be in the library of every active therapist, but it shouldn't be left on the shelf! Once again, the authors have empowered the reader with straightforward instructions on every major approach to stress management known. From worry to chronic headaches to information overload, here is your one-stop guide to recovery. -- R. Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Don't Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks This text remains, after twenty years, the clearest, best-organized, and most readable book on stress management. It has achieved the status of the 'classic' self-help reference in the field. -- Edmund J. Bourne, PhD, author of The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook, Coping with Anxiety, and Beyond Anxiety and Phobia An exemplary book on stress. It is lucidly written, rationally ordered, and comprehensive, and each section is densely packed with instructions and exercises which make the workbook easy to practice.
