CLASSIC SELF-HELP FROM A RESPECTED PIONEER OF PSYCHOTHERAPY From social anxiety to phobias to post-traumatic stress disorder, sources of anxiety in daily life are numerous, and can have a powerful impact on your future. By following the rules of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), created by world renowned therapist Dr. Albert Ellis, you can stop anxiety in its tracks if you will admit this important fact: Things and people do not make you anxious. You do. Your unrealistic expectations produce your needless anxiety. Yet not all anxiety is needless. Healthy anxiety can ward off dangers and make you aware of negative things that you can change. Unhealthy anxiety inhibits you from enjoying everyday activities and relationships, causes you to perform poorly, and blocks your creativity. Using the easy-to-master, proven precepts of REBT, this classic book not only helps you distinguish between healthy and unhealthy anxiety, but teaches you how to: -Understand and dispute the irrational beliefs that make you anxious -Use a variety of exercises, including rational coping self-statements, reframing, problem-solving methods, and Unconditional Self-Acceptance (USA), to control your anxiety -Apply over 200 maxims to control your anxious thinking as well as your bodily reactions to anxiety .and much more, including examples from dozens of cases Dr. Ellis treated successfully. Now you can overcome the crippling effects of anxiety-and increase your prospects for success, pleasure, and happiness at home and in the workplace.

Professional reviews

"In the 1970s the late author was a pioneer in a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the value of thinking in managing one's emotions. In this abridgment you'll hear an accessible reading of Ellis's core thinking and prescriptions. Though few in mental health circles today look to Ellis for ideas about emotional health, this pleasant volume is strikingly relevant and will be especially useful to people who enjoy approaching their emotional lives with a sense of control. The program encourages us to distinguish between what we can and cannot control, and says we can choose how we shape our beliefs about various life events. It's especially cogent and helpful on the problem of setting unreasonably high personal standards. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
