One in four people suffers from some form of anxiety-- and for millions, the symptoms can be crippling. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are highly treatable. Written in a friendly and reassuring manner, The Anxiety Cure offers both sufferers and their loved ones immediate, long-lasting relief. The authors share their step-by-step methods for dealing with the six main types of anxiety, including panic disorder, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, along with treatment prescriptions and easy relaxation techniques. Grounded in the authors' own treatment of thousands of clinically anxious people, The Anxiety Cure:
* Reveals how to manage anxiety at home and at work
* Provides action plans for friends, family, and support people
* Features dramatic stories as well as boxes, tools, and forms to chart your personal progress
* Outlines lifesaving strategies for anxious people with alcohol or drug problems
The Anxiety Cure is written by a father and his two daughters-- now in clinical practice together-- who tell the inspiring story of how they overcame anxiety in their family. Completely revised and updated, this practical guide features a chapter on anxiety and terrorism and an updated section on the latest medications.
