A Breakthrough Treatment for Overcoming Fear, Worry, and Panic

Using a breakthrough approach combining proven-effective CBT and exposure therapy, this workbook helps the individual understand how worry and rumination drive anxiety, and offers practical exercises to help them adopt new habits of observing their thoughts, rather than accepting them as the “ultimate truth.” They will also develop mindfulness and self-soothing coping skills to help them manage anxiety in the moment, rather than avoid it. Over time these practices will show them that they are more powerful than their anxiety.
