The Worry Relief Workbook
Practical Strategies to Reduce Stress, Calm Fears, and Manage Negative Thoughts
by Jane Teixeira, LMFT
Are you a person who worries and/but would like to fret less? Would you welcome some help from a reliable source? If yes, this book by a licensed marriage and family therapist could be of great help. It may be especially helpful when used in conjunction with some form of mental health treatment.
The author utilizes what are called “evidence based” strategies/treatments to work on issues of worry and anxiety. EB means that the practices have been tested and found to be useful. Without worrying about jargon, these include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy for example. Don’t worry (!), everything you need to know will be explained.
The well trained author of this book hopes to help readers identify their goals, learn new ways of working with anxiety and leave with a better understanding of their emotional health. This sounds very helpful.
It is suggested that readers read and work on the chapters in order as they build on one another. It provides an interactive resource with exercise suggestions and is one that many will turn to frequently. Be honest with yourself and see what you might achieve in terms of better coping skills. This is a great way to give something to yourself.
