Just like The Beast in the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, anxiety is an emotion that society initially misjudges as the villain. Your Anxiety Beast and You is a kinder, more compassionate approach for people suffering from anxiety. Rather than living with an enemy inside your mind, you're encouraged to see anxiety for what it really is-an inner hero. It is always trying to protect you from threats, however, it is completely confused about what are true threats in the modern world. Learn how to cope with your anxiety and train it to be a better inner-companion through integrating therapeutic methods from compassion-focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Gain an understanding of why society stigmatises anxiety and gain a better understanding of your own anxiety beast with humour and compassion. Your Anxiety Beast and You takes you through step-by-step strategies to cope with the howling of the beast in your mind, the physical effects of anxiety on your body, and then focuses on ways to come up with 'teachable moments' for your anxiety to learn that what you fear is not actually a threat. With over 25 years of experience helping people with anxiety disorders and OCD, Dr Goodman aims to help you make peace with the reality of your anxiety. And then to help you re-focus on making your anxiety a better companion.
From the bestselling author of Living with IT and Taming the Black Dog comes a practical guide for parents of anxious children. If your child is too often: seeks reassurance, invents illnesses, avoids interactions, avoids trying new things, becomes emotional over minor upsets, or is clingy, afraid to sleep alone, reluctant to go to school or scared of numerous things ... then anxiety could be an issue for them. Commonly, a child experiencing anxiety doubts themselves, lacks confidence and becomes easily overwhelmed. So how do you best help them? From Australia's bestselling anxiety expert, Bev Aisbett, comes an essential guide for these anxious times. Worry-Proofing Your Anxious Child is a calm, clear and, above all, reassuring book to help parents (and teachers) of anxious children. Filled with simple explanations and practical advice, this book will assist everyone who wants to help a child overcome their anxieties and learn to live more confidently. Bev Aisbett is Australia's leading author in books around managing anxiety. In 1993, after recovering from severe anxiety and depression herself, Bev turned to her artistic talents to create the first of her ground-breaking illustrated self-help books Living with IT: A Survivor's Guide to Panic Attacks, which rapidly became a national bestseller, with over 200,000 copies sold. In 2013, HarperCollins published the fully revised and updated 20th anniversary edition of this classic book.
A guide to our anxious minds; offering a route to calm, self-compassion and mental well-being. Far more than we tend to realise, we're all - in private - deeply anxious. There is so much that worries us across our days and nights: whether our hopes will come true, whether others will like us, whether the people we care about will be OK, whether we can escape humiliation and grief... Anxiety is deeply normal and, like so much else that troubles our minds, it can be understood and brought under our control. We all deserve to wake up every day without a sense of foreboding. This is a guide to anxiety: why we feel it, how we experience it when it strikes and what we can do when we come under its influence. Across a series of essays that look at the subject from a number of angles, the tone is helpful, compassionate and in the best sense practical. We have suffered for too long under the rule of anxiety. Here - at last - is a pathway to a calmer, more compassionate and more light-hearted future.
