Reviews
[+] [-] 085375 - The Anxiety, Worry & Depression Workbook
"In this comprehensive yet easy-to-use format, Dr. Abel walks readers through a treasure-trove of tips and strategies likely to start helping right away. Dr. Abel's expertise in the research behind each of these exercises allows her to explain them in a way to readers can both understand and trust. I was very impressed by her ability to bring together insights from both mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral traditions in such a seamless and understandable way. Her inclusion of tips for therapists as well is a plus not found in most self-help books. This book is an excellent resource for anyone looking for ways to reverse old mental habits of worry that are leading to unnecessary anxiety and/or depression."
