Description

Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.  


In the book, you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison, the cortex is the center of “worry.” That is, obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen. In the book, Pittman and Karle make it simple by offering specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping into both of these pathways in the brain.   As you read, you’ll gain a greater understanding how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result, you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it. The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally “rewire” the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.

Reviews

"Catherine Pittman, a trained behavioral scientist, brings her deep scientific understanding of fear, anxiety, and learning to the world of personal experiences. Few scientists can make this transition from scientific communication to public communication. Pittman, along with coauthor Elizabeth Karle, does this very well indeed. Readers should not be put off by the early presentations of brain mechanisms, because they are surprisingly readable and informative. Moreover, it is information that provides a foundation for readers who have anxiety challenges to use later as they develop effective coping strategies. Readers should find the clear expositions of the where's, why's, and how's of anxiety and its management to be an anxiety-reducing read."--J. Bruce Overmier, PhD, professor emeritus in the graduate faculties of psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science at the University of Minnesota
