"The Anxiety Cure is a warm, wise, and thoroughly wonderful book for people with anxiety disorders and for everyone who cares about them."
-- From the Foreword by Jerilyn Ross, M.A., L.I.C.S.W., President, Anxiety Disorders Association of America, and author of Triumph Over Fear

"The Anxiety Cure is sure to enjoy substantial popularity and will be used widely by anxious people, their families, and therapists."
-- R. Reid Wilson, Ph.D., author of Don't Panic

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.
