The Worry Cure
Dr Robert L. Leahy
Do you worry that you’ll say the wrong thing, wear the wrong outfit, or look out of place? Or maybe that you’ll make a mistake at work, disappoint your partner, or overlook a serious health problem? Or perhaps you just worry too much – constantly running what-if scenarios through your head? Of course you do – we all do. Worry is a central issue in many people’s lives; 38% of people say they worry every day. In this groundbreaking book, Dr Robert Leahy offers new insight, advice and practical techniques for everyone who has ever had a sleepless night. Using the most recent research and his 25 years of experience treating patients, Dr Leahy helps us understand why we worry and how best to defeat it. In his easy-to-follow-programme, he tells you how to: Identify productive and unproductive worry; Accept reality and commit to change; Turn ‘failure’ into opportunity; Use your emotions rather than worry about them. Combining stories from his practice with unique approaches to reducing worry, The Worry Cure is an essential companion for everyone who is anxious.
This book offers practical and powerful tools to reverse your worry and transform the quality of your life. * Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken The Giant Within AND Unlimited Power * The therapist will find this a valuable bibliotherapy tool when treating anxiety and depression. It is also an indispensable source of psychological knowledge on worry and its treatment for all mental health practitioners. It should be required reading for any student of psychotherapy. If I could choose only 10 clinical texts for my library, The Worry Cure would be one of them! * The Clinical Psychologist *
