Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[Five stars]...this is a concise, practical, and comprehensive directory on how to reduce anxiety. A highly regarded and widely known resource.”
Authoritative Guide to Self-Help Resources in Mental Health, Revised Edition

“A great resource for a holistic approach.”
—Reid Wilson, author of Don’t Panic

“Extremely well done.”
—Christopher McCullough, author of Managing Your Anxiety

“Any who've struggled with panic attacks and fears will find this packed with self-help exercises and guidelines to overcoming anxiety and stress, from understanding how to assert oneself to creating a positive recovery strategy.”
Midwest Book Review

“This workbook offers a practical and comprehensive guide to anyone struggling to cope with the many-faceted manifestations of panic and anxiety.”
Child & Behavior Therapy

Library Journal
This book excels not only in explaining the cause and nature of anxiety disorders and phobias but also in describing treatments. Director of the Anxiety Treatment Center in Santa Rosa (California), Bourne emphasizes the cognitive-behavioral model of treatment but includes information on biopsychiatry, intense psychotherapy, and spirituality as additional treatment modalities. This is truly a "workbook," with exercises designed to facilitate recovery, either through private use or in conjunction with professional therapy. If your library already owns the 1990 edition and money is an object, you can probably pass on this revision, which updates the definitions of anxiety and phobia so that they conform with the new DSM-IV diagnostic criteria and includes new information on the biological causes of anxiety and related treatment developments. However, if your collection lacks a good lay reader's book on anxiety and phobia, this is an excellent choice.Jennifer Amador, Central State Hosp. Medical Lib., Petersburg, Va.
