Anxious people often think a great deal about why they think and behave the way they do. They seek self-improvement information yet often get stuck in applying it. They read popular self-help books for anxiety, but these books are highly simplified, to the extent readers can't make the leap from the examples in the books to their more complex real world problems. They turn to business books because they're motivated to achieve greater success, but since these books don't address the reasons anxious people get stuck, they're not especially helpful. The Anxiety Toolkit provides the information anxious people look for but can't find. It draws on extensive social psychology research, and the author's training and clinical experience in Cognitive-Behavioral psychology, addressing the core problems that impede people who are anxious-inhibition, biased thinking, rumination, intolerance of uncertainty, excessive responsibility taking, self-criticism, perfectionism, and avoidance coping-and providing readers with the tools to manage these tendencies. 'The Anxiety Toolkit provides quick, simple and practical tips that the anxious person can use now.' Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D., Director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy 'In this innovative handbook, Dr. Boyes identifies common habits that underlie different types of anxiety. She then offers clear strategies to drop the fight and become more gentle with ourselves. If anxiety has limited your life in any way, this book is an excellent place to start the healing process.' Christopher Germer, PhD, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Medical School; Co-editor, Mindfulness and Psychotherapy; author, The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion 'The Anxiety Toolkit is an investment in wellness. Based on years of clinical practice and research, Dr. Alice Boyes has written a real-world roadmap for all of us who struggle with making decisions and feeling stuck.'
