The newly updated workbook companion for putting the top anxiety management techniques into practice.
Brimming with exercises, worksheets, tips, and tools, this complete how-to workbook companion expands on the top 10 anxiety-busting techniques Margaret Wehrenberg presents in the earlier edition of this book, showing readers exactly how to put them into action.
From panic disorders, generalized anxiety, and social anxiety, to overall worry and stress, manifestations of anxiety are among the most common―and often debilitating―mental health complaints. But thanks to a flood of supporting brain research, effective, practical strategies have emerged that allow us to manage day-to-day anxiety on our own.
Here Dr. Wehrenberg offers us a trove of them, showing just how physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms can be alleviated with targeted methods. Step-by-step exercises for practicing counter-cognition, mindfulness meditation, thought-stopping, and thought-replacement, "breathing minutes," demand delays, cued relaxation, affirmations, and much, much more are presented―all guaranteed to overcome your anxious thoughts.
The accompanying audio downloads feature an array of calming, author-guided exercises including targeted breath work, muscle relaxation, mindfulness, and much more.
“Although her book and workbook are written for the lay reader, they are good resources for clinicians to have on hand. . . . Because both the book and workbook are user-friendly, this is not something that is going to make anxious people more anxious. . . . The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques is a realistic guide to help people work through anxiety provoking thoughts, feelings, and experiences.”
- Psych Central
“Ideal for the non-specialist general reader seeking to successfully deal with the enervating, disabling, devitalizing, injurious effects of untreated anxiety, The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques and its accompanying workbook are impressively 'user friendly' in organization and presentation, making it unreservedly recommended for personal self-help/self-improvement collections.”
- The Midwest Book Review
“This book offers the key to unlocking the complex biochemistry of your brain and reversing your anxiety-inducing habits. Dr. Wehrenberg has done the work for you to create the right learning environment and organize the needed tools. Follow her lead and your body and mind will thank you with the peace and quiet you deserve.”
- Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Don't Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks
“In steps that are both clear and scaled for easily attainable victories, Wehrenberg extends a hand to those without the recourse of clinical therapy.”
