Summary

Summary

This new workbook by the author of The Depression Workbook (92,000 sold) is designed to help people who feel that worry interferes with their lives. Worry is a uniquely human trait that just about everyone experiences in some form. A little anxiety can actually help, when it motivates us to take action or identify problems. But in the form of Generalized Anxiety Disorder, worry moves into another dimension. Victims of the disorder constantly foresee disaster, even when they realize that their concerns are excessive and unwarranted. Many have sleep problems, headaches, poor concentration, and depression.Mary Ellen Copeland uses a format that has proven successful with her other workbooks. Readers are guided through a process of self-evaluation that helps them recognize the role that worry plays in their lives. They identify problematic areas and develop techniques for dealing with them, including guided imagery, meditation, deep breathing, and cognitive techniques for changing negative attitudes.
