Don't Put Up with Anxiety: Cure It!
Avigail Abarbanel, author
f you suffer from anxiety and all you have been offered so far are ways to manage it, if you have been told that you will have to live with anxiety for the rest of your life, this booklet will challenge this approach. It will encourage you to think about anxiety differently. Anxiety can be a useful prompt that we are neglecting something important in ourselves. Instead of treating anxiety as an enemy to vanquish, we need to listen to what it is telling us. Anxiety is curable in most people, but curing it depends on learning to handle our emotions the right way.In this booklet Avigail covers anxiety, its dynamic and its causes. Based on many years of clinical experience, as well as first hand experience of chronic anxiety, Avigail explains that anxiety is caused by the unskilled and clumsy ways we handle our feelings. The detailed discussion of emotions is followed by a practice that if repeated, can lead not only to reduction in anxiety in the short term, but to curing it for good . This booklet offers a fresh, clear, reassuring, and no-nonsense approach to anxiety that is as hopeful and empowering, as it is practical. It does not offer a quick fix, because there are no quick fixes when it comes to our human experience. Hard times can be a catalyst for growth, healing and development, but we need the right information and approach to make the most of them. This booklet will show you how you can begin to work to not only reduce your own anxiety with the view of curing it completely, but how to help others, including children and young people with their emotions, to prevent anxiety from developing in the first placeThis is the second in the new Fully Human Psychotherapy Tools for Life Series.
