These books provide proven-effective treatments and tools to improve psychological well-being, while also supporting advancements in psychotherapy for the betterment of humanity.
“Bill Knaus has hit the bullseye! From a horde of scientific studies and his own extensive experience, he has distilled an accessible, easily assimilated, pragmatic, and schematic approach to dealing with 'parasite' anxieties. Readers can work through this program in small bites to gradually advance their control over their destructive anxieties."
—Joseph Gerstein, MD, FACP, Harvard Medical School
