Product Description

Review

"A great gift to anyone suffering from anxiety. This book is accessible, is written with warmth and wisdom, and includes the most up-to-date cognitive-behavioral strategies. Enormously valuable, it is sure to inspire courage and hope." – Paul Gilbert, Mental Health Research Unit, University of Derby, UK

"Buy this gem of a book when you are ready to face your anxiety and take the necessary steps to overcome it. Drs. Clark and Beck are leaders in cognitive therapy, which has the highest anxiety treatment success rates in the world. Everyone who has ever felt anxious will recognize themselves in these pages and gain new understanding of what drives their anxiety. Even better, each chapter is packed with worksheets that can help lower anxiety within days and weeks. This is your chance to follow expert guidance with confidence as you take steps toward a calmer, happier future." - Christine A. Padesky, coauthor of Mind Over Mood

"I would not hesitate to recommend The Anxiety and Worry Workbook to anyone interested in learning more about cognitive and cognitive behavioral approaches to anxiety – therapist and client alike. If you're a CBT practitioner, and in particular if you're already well versed in the authors' 2009 textbook, this Workbook should be in your arsenal. Even if you're not – and certainly if you're interested in addressing your anxiety and worry – then it deserves a look." - Dr Greg Mulhauser, Counselling Resource (online), March 2012

"From world-renowned cognitive therapists, this hands-on, practical, step-by-step workbook can help sufferers free themselves from debilitating anxiety and worry. It is complete with self-help forms that guide the reader in identifying and changing pessimistic and catastrophic thinking. Drs. Clark and Beck offer a clear and empowering roadmap for building a better life." – Robert L. Leahy, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, USA

"A valuable resource for the millions of people around the world who suffer from anxiety, especially those who have panic attacks, fear social situations, or are tormented by constant worry. The book is easily accessible to readers who wish to work through the steps on their own or with the help of a therapist." Richard G. Heimberg, Temple University, Pennsylvania, USA

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an important book, for obvious reasons. It's the first self-help book on anxiety by Aaron T. Beck, the founder of cognitive therapy. It's published hot on the heels of Beck's 2010 revised treatment manual for cognitive therapy of anxiety disorders, also co-authored with David Clark. Beck's original treatment manual for anxiety was published in 1985 and revised in 2005 but this is a major revision of his approach. He has now provided an extremely comprehensive account of the scientific evidence for cognitive therapy and a more carefully defined and up-to-date set of guidelines for clinicians. This self-help workbook is basically the companion text for that clinical manual, presenting the same approach in a version designed for the general public to use by themselves or as homework when seeing a cognitive therapist using the same approach.

It's not as much of of a light-read as some popular self-help books. It's a workbook in the true sense, with a thorough and systematic chapter-by-chapter approach, including many forms to complete and regular exercises to engage in, perhaps requiring half an hour of work per day for several months. This, in other words, is a serious evidence-based guide to addressing anxiety directly and it will require commitment from the reader.

The book begins with a generic approach to anxiety, which can be used for subclinical problems and many mild-moderate issues. The later chapters focus on three special categories of anxiety: panic attacks, social anxiety and chronic worry. These problems are experienced by many people but the chapters will, of course, be particularly relevant to people who suffer from panic disorder, social phobia, or generalised anxiety disorder (sometimes called the "worry" disorder).

I shall continue reading and working on it in greater detail and follow its instructions accordingly.

And I really want to thank the authors of this book.
