This ebook starts out with a description of the 33 anxiety symptoms and guides you through a system of evaluation. You pick which symptoms you have, quantify them according to their number, frequency and severity. This number is plugged into rating criteria to tell you where you "fall" relative to everyone else.
Next is a description of the seven categories of anxiety. This helps you pick which area best describes your experience with anxiety. You find out which diagnostic category best fits.
Next is a discussion of the causes of anxiety, divided broadly into two groups--physical and psychological causes.
Finally, there follows a description of the treatment of anxiety, which again focuses first on fixing any physical causes, and then delving into what you can do psychologically. There's a lot you can do right away, but you have to follow along with my thinking first. I take you through my exact process as a psychologist as I work with clients, only you get to follow along and do it yourself.
Lastly, I have four techniques or exercises that take you right up to the limit of what a self-help book can do.
