By Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D.
#7926 Leahy is an expert in cognitive therapy (changing thought processes), and in this self-help guide he takes worriers step-by-step through problems in the way they think, with pointers on how to change these biases.
Several questionnaires let you take your worry profile, including estimations of your personal beliefs on self and relationships and your ability to tolerate uncertainty.
A worry-reduction plan is then outlined: beginning with identifying productive and unproductive worry, progressing to improving skills for accepting reality, challenging worried thinking and learning to harness unpleasant emotions such as fear or anger.
The book also discusses the broad life anxieties that may spark dysfunctional thinking: relationships, health, money and work.
