Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is one of the best client workbooks for generalized anxiety disorder in quite some time. Strongly recommended!"--Doody's

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This latest workbook in the Treatments That Work series focuses on the area of anxiety and worry. As treatments have changed for the anxiety disorders, so has this series, and this book reflects the latest in psychological interventions.
Purpose: The purpose of this book and series is to help clients address their generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and develop coping mechanisms as well as continuous improvement. Additionally, the workbook provides the necessary tools for working both with the therapist and during the important time between sessions. The authors and contributors are unquestionably experts in their respective fields.
Audience: Clients who suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and are under the care of a trained professional who has the therapist guide may benefit from this well written workbook and program. The authors and contributors are highly credible members in the field.
Features: The workbook complements the therapist guide and takes the reader step-by-step through the program and the principles of treatment. A strong emphasis is rightly put on the need to relax and the source of worrying. A focus on time management and problem solving and facing one's fears is a must-read. A standout chapter is the discussion on psychopharmacological intervention which is unbiased, well-balanced, and objective. The organization of the workbook is well thought out, systematic, and a potential beacon of hope for the GAD client.
Assessment: This is one of the best client workbooks for generalized anxiety disorder in quite some time. Strongly recommended!

    Disappointed

    I had to purchase this book for a class I'm taking and I don't feel it is worth the $32.00 asking price. It's a thin workbook with a few measly examples. I'm not impressed.

    Stop Worrying and Start Living

    I have only read the first five chapters of the Workbook, but already, following the instructions in the book, I have reduced my anxiety and worry. The Workbook encourages the reader to seek and examine the sources of his/her anxiety and worry and Chapter Five offers an excellent schedule of Relaxation exercises. Read it, work, and relax, at last.
