Product Description


People who experience persistent anxiety practically always operate with a negative self-view, along with a strong sense of desperation and vulnerability. This vulnerable state of mind frequently opens the floodgates to more of the physical sensations we associate with anxiety, and persistent forms of anxiety can add to one's sense of personal doubt. This reciprocating process of self-doubt and self-downing links to anxiety and creates a platform for a continuation of self-doubts. "The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Anxiety" offers a powerful, stepwise program for breaking the cycle of anxiety and getting back to a rich and productive life. Using the time-tested principles of rational-emotive behavior therapy (REBT), the book shows readers how to recognize and dispute irrational thoughts that can lead to feelings of anxiety. It proceeds with a programme of action-oriented steps that help readers return from the dizzy, heady realm of anxiety to a grounded and purposeful existence.

HASH(0x9fc54dec) out of 5 stars This book changed my life 25 Jun. 2011
By Valerie Gravel - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had been struggling with anxiety all my life and I didn't even know it. It got out of hand 6 years ago during my final year in university. I just had these crazy thoughts, that freaked me out and didn't make any kind of sense and I couldn't handle them.

I took medication and things settled down a little only to come back with a vengeance when I started a job I didn't really like. Well, as things would have happened, I got fired, but I decided it was time to take this problem into my own hands. I stumbled upon this book by accident. Reading books is the only thing I had not tried yet, I went to doctors, psychologist, psychiatrists and I took what did I have to lose.

This book opened my eyes. It gave me so much information on my problem that I just couldn't figure out on my own because I was so anxious and tensed. It really feels like you have your own little doctor talking to you in each page and everything is explained so clearly. It took me three months to read it cover to cover and I noticed some changes in the first weeks of starting the program.

Now, I read through it every month and I have reduced my medication, without any complications so far. If all goes well, in three months time (because I'm taking it slow) I should be off medication for good. My anxiety still makes cameo appearances in my life from time to time, but, I can control it now. These are my thoughts, and I am not gonna let them rule over me anymore, thanks to this book.

HASH(0x9fc54f60) out of 5 stars CBT Book Great 27 July 2009
By Lauren D - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had been suffering with panic attacks and generalized anxiety for a few months. I tried therapy, meds, ect and found them all to be not for me. I was pointed to Cognitive Behavior Therapy by a college counselor, and bought this book. I LOVE it. It is set-up very well, has charts to write in, and has really reduced my anxiety. I have been doing a chapter (about 8 pages) a week for about 8 weeks and have really noticed a change. I highly recommend this book!

HASH(0x9fc54ed0) out of 5 stars Very Helpful Workbook 30 July 2010
By C, C, - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to help me with anxiety issues and found it to be a very good self help tool. The exercises and action plans really helped me to see I can view anxiety differently and stop letting it control my life so much. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes self help programs. I haven't even finished the book yet but by using what I have learned so far I am able to approach circumstances that cause anxiety in a much more positive manner.

HASH(0x9fd2e87c) out of 5 stars The Perfect Workbook 4 Mar. 2011
By mgk - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Both this, and the other workbook in the series, "Cognitive Behavior Workbook for Depression", are excellent. I consider them essential in my helping clients. As combination workbook-textbooks for my clients it saves clients money on not having to neelessly spend additonal money for other supplimentary bibliotherapy resources. This is the only book clients will need to cover a complete course of therapy. Thw workbbok covers everything in fine detail. I have used these books for the last five years with very favorable results. The only difficulty I have encountered is that the authors do assume those who read the books have some basic familiarity with CBT concepts. Other then that I have found this book to be the best workbook available, or for that matter, the best client centered textbook, for helping clients in better understanding and managing their anxiety. I would also add the best price available is at Amazon.

HASH(0x9fd2e894) out of 5 stars Anxiety workbook 24 Jan. 2013
By XtinaV - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

Wish the information would elaborate more on how to deal in specific situations- book is too broad with anxiety and does not particularly deliver info on how severe anxiety can be for some people. Wish it would build more on info and tactics to conquer anxiety.

The chapters tend to graze topics vs fully describe and (in detail) explain how to deal with certain things. Being as I am a person with mild to moderate anxiety, I know I look at everything from a very detail oriented perspective- perfectionism is a side-effect of anxiety and I did not feel that the book fully grabbed me and helped me understand how I could change this or use cognitive therapy to better my quality of life. The workbook aspect of it definitely makes you think a lot about what you could do- even if the outcomes are far different than those prescribed by the book.

the book did not supersede my expectations but definitely opened a playing field to help me feel like I am not alone.
