The Anxiety Toolkit: Strategies for Fine-Tuning Your Mind and Moving Past Your Stuck Points.pdf
Drawing on extensive social psychology research, and the author's training and clinical experience in Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, The Anxiety Toolkit offers actionable strategies that anyone can use to manage their anxiety--both personal and professional.
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.
