'Thriving with Anxiety is a guide that offers a new and empowering perspective on anxiety. Dr. Rosmarin challenges the conventional notion of anxiety from a feeling of fear to a tool that helps deepen compassion, self-awareness, and relationships. By looking inward, readers are encouraged to utilize anxiety to transcend their internal barriers into a life of connection, acceptance, and resilience.'--BOBBY BERK, Emmy-nominated TV host and author of Right at Home
'Thriving with Anxiety is the silver lining inside anxiety that will enable you to turn a potential breakdown into a breakthrough that will change your life.'--MARK GOULSTON, MD, Bestselling author of Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone
'Thriving with Anxiety offers a counterintuitive yet scientifically grounded approach to the treatment of anxiety-related disorders. With increasing prevalence of anxiety across the age spectrum, in part related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncovering of existing, common, and unaddressed mental health challenges, there has never been a time when Dr. Rosmarin's wisdom and guidance is so critically needed.'--BRENT P. FORESTER, MD, MSc, Chief and chairman of the department of psychiatry at Tufts Medical Center; Dr. Frances S. Arkin Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine
'Thriving with Anxiety takes a brilliant approach to transcending our limits by coming to terms with and accepting who we are. From this sense of heightened self-awareness and inner peace comes the ability to truly know others and accept them for who they are. This fresh perspective on emotional and behavioral health is especially timely in light of Gen-Z/Zoomers' isolation from living in a world of digital technology. Yet all generations suffer from anxiety to some degree, and embracing it to become more self-aware, to connect more effectively with others, and to reach our full potential is the noble purpose of this much-needed book.'--PAUL FALCONE, Author and principal of Paul Falcone Workplace Leadership Consulting, LLC
'Thriving with Anxiety will teach you to not just learn to live with anxiety but to recognize how anxiety can help you to enjoy the life you want to live. All too often, anxiety is viewed negatively, as something to be avoided. Ironically, it's the constant struggle to avoid anxiety that keeps it alive. This book illustrates the differences between helpful anxiety and anxiety that gets in the way. It will show you how to change your relationship with anxiety, how to learn to embrace anxiety, and how to harness your anxiety to soar to new heights in your relationships and your life!'--MARTIN M. ANTONY, PhD, Former president of the Canadian Psychological Association; professor of psychology at Toronto Metropolitan University; author of The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook and The Anti-Anxiety Program
'As a person who has lived with anxiety my whole life, I had never seen it through the many lenses this book offers. I couldn't put the book down!
