Overview

Psychologists report that anxiety has replaced depression as the number one challenge to a woman’s sense of well-being and good mental health.

Through extensive personal interviews with individuals, groups, and therapists, author Carol Becker examines the most prevalent forms of anxiety among women—and the often subtle and surprising physical and emotional ways in which it negatively manifests itself.

Through astute analysis and with compassionate insight, Becker helps readers understand how change provokes anxiety and also discover its great potential as a tool in restoring psychic health. This book offers women of all ages the support and guidance they need to transform anxiety into positive change and lead happier, more confident, and fully empowered lives.
