Easy and reassuring to follow.... Life-changing." --Mani Feniger, author of Journey from Anxiety to Freedom
"Ed Bourne has again produced a thoroughly updated revision of his classic book. Incredibly helpful to clients and clinicians, he describes symptoms and updated treatment techniques in detail, and provides plenty of exercises. He covers health conditions that may contribute to anxiety, safety behaviors that perpetuate it, and nutrition, medication, and meditations that reduce it--as well as relapse prevention. He updates descriptions of exposures according to new research. He describes genotypic testing that helps determine the best antidepressant medications for particular individuals. Finally, he has material on identifying values and setting goals, including those based on one's spiritual life." --Lynne Henderson, PhD, founder of the Social Fitness Center; founder and codirector, with Philip Zimbardo, of the Shyness Institute; and author of Improving Social Confidence and Reducing Shyness
