Description

The key to this book is that it outlines both the science and art of anxiety therapy. The science of overcoming anxiety is using the well-researched approach called Gradual Exposure Therapy, which involves helping individuals gradually face their fears. The art of therapy is figuring out how to actually convince someone to face their fears. Jed describes motivational techniques, cognitive behavioral strategies, exercises, relaxation, and mindfulness guides to lower anxiety to the point where individuals can begin to confront their fears.

The book covers:

  • Simple phobias
  • Social phobia
  • Selective mutism
  • Separation anxiety
  • School refusal
  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Somatic symptom disorder and/or illness anxiety disorder
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Perfectionism
  • and other common fears.
