The Worry Trick: How Your Brain Tricks You Into Expecting the Worst and What You Can Do About ItAuthor: David A. Carbonell Category: Anxiety Publisher: Little, Brown : 2016 ISBN: 9781626253186 Pages: 232
Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question ourselves and our decisions, causes us to worry about the future, and fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence. Based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), this book is designed to help you break the cycle of worry.
Worry convinces us there’s danger, and then tricks us into getting into fight, flight, or freeze mode-even when there is no danger. The techniques in this book, rather than encouraging you to avoid or try to resist anxiety, shows you how to see the trick that underlies your anxious thoughts, and how avoidance can backfire and make anxiety worse.
If you’re ready to start observing your anxious feelings with distance and clarity – rather than getting tricked once again- this book will show you how.
