Using the principles of CBT, these 150 information pages and worksheets help adults to understand and manage symptoms of anxiety.
The activities follow the framework of a typical CBT course: how it works, looking at the nature of the anxiety, linking thoughts, feelings, behaviour and physiology cycles, exploring different levels of thinking and beliefs, and identifying goals and future planning.
Suitable for adults in individual or group work, this is an excellent resource to use as a standalone resource or in conjunction with professional therapy to deal with anxiety.
A visually beautiful and highly accessible workbook that will help to develop an understanding of anxiety and provides powerful tools to help gain control of it and reduce its ability to negatively impact people's lives. This is a resource that should be part of every therapist's toolkit (and is definitely not just for CBT therapists).

A wonderfully creative take on CBT! Jen incorporates understanding of anxiety with practical interventions. A must have book for both practitioners or self help. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique way of addressing on going struggles with anxiety.
