Description
Enough is enough Many have struggled too long to control the symptoms of anxiety, inly to find fear, shyness, and worry creeping bak 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 psycological probelms learn to accept painful feelings without becoming overwhelmed by or submerged in them. Then it works to help these folks 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 program for dealing with any anxiety-related problem. Yes, you read that right The techniques in this book are equally effective with all of the different manifestations of anxiety: soical and specitic phobias, agoraphobia, worry and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more. The book is divided into weeks, with clear objectives for each. The authors' light, engaging style makes exploring this new approach interesting, accessible, and fun.
