Review Quote*"Several generations of counselors and physicians have had the benefit of Edmund Bourne's intensely researched and extremely handyThe Anxiety and Phobia Workbook. I know few colleagues who do not have a copy on their bookshelves that they consult regularly when treating patients suffering with anxiety-related disorders. This book is especially important today as climate change continues to inflame the anxieties of our already-stressed social fabric. The WHO and NIH are all reporting sweeping increases in ‘ecoanxiety.' The recent APA special report,Mental Health and Our Changing Climate, found that US-based hurricanes more than doubled rates of suicide and suicidal ideation, with nearly 50 percent of the catchment group studied developing a longer-term anxiety or mood disorder such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If you don't already have this updated edition of the ‘gold standard' in anxiety treatment, now is the time to add it to your clinical armamentarium."

Review Quote*"The best gets better! Bourne refuses to be complacent, and brings his classic book up to date with new topics such as overcoming worry and preventing relapse. This is part informational, part workbook, part repository of practical steps, and part resource directory for all things to do with anxiety, phobias, and even obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). An astonishing resource in one volume! Those with anxiety will find much help in these pages."

Review Quote*"Ed Bourne has again produced a thoroughly updated revision of his classic book. Incredibly helpful to clients and clinicians, he describes symptoms and updated treatment techniques in detail, and provides plenty of exercises. He covers health conditions that may contribute to anxiety, safety behaviors that perpetuate it, and nutrition, medication, and meditations that reduce it-as well as relapse prevention. He updates descriptions of exposures according to new research. He describes genotypic testing that helps determine the best antidepressant medications for particular individuals. Finally, he has material on identifying values and setting goals, including those based on one's spiritual life."

He goes beyond his six earlier editions to expand your knowledge on the causes for anxiety and phobias, and to evolve clear, step-by-step prescriptions that you can follow as written or shape into your own personalized program. In this organized, practical, reader-friendly self-help book, Bourne draws from science and his practice to map paths to positive change. Put this information to use to liberate yourself from what is among the worst of all possible feelings."

Review Quote*"As a person once challenged by anxiety, and as a professional, I am truly grateful for this book. It is the encyclopedia of healing from anxiety and phobias, not to read all at once, but a resource to reach for that has just what you need each day or each month…. Easy and reassuring to follow…. Life-changing."
