Description

Enough is enough! Many have struggled too long to control the symptoms of anxiety, only to find fear, shyness and worry creeping back into their lives the minute they let down their guard. The bottom line is that most efforts to "control" or "get rid of" anxiety simply don't work. But, fortunately, this book offers another option. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) helps people facing a range of psychological problems learn to accept painful feelings without becoming overwhelmed by or submerged in them. Then it works to help them identify their values and commit to living their lives in ways that make these values come alive.This is the first workbook to offer readers a complete, ACT-based programme for dealing with any anxiety related problem. The techniques in this book are equally effective with of the different manifestations of anxiety: social and specific phobias, agoraphobia, worry and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more. The book is divided into weeks, with clear directions and objectives for each. The light, engaging style of the authors make exploring this new approach interesting, accessible, and fun.show more
