You wish you didn't spend as much time worrying as you do, but you just can't seem to help it. Worrying feels like second nature. It's what helps you solve your problems and prevents you from making mistakes. It's what motivates you to be prepared--if you didn't worry, things might get out of hand. Worry protects you, prepares you, and keeps you safe.
Is it working? Or is it making you tense, tired, anxious, uncertain--and more worried?
For more than twenty-five years, Dr. Robert L. Leahy has successfully helped thousands of people defeat the worry that is holding them back. "The Worry Cure" is his new, comprehensive approach to help you identify, challenge, and overcome all types of worry, using the most recent research and his more than two decades of experience in treating patients.
This empowering seven-step program, including practical, easy-to-follow advice and techniques, will help you:
- Determine your "worry profile" and change your patterns of worry
- Identify productive and unproductive worry
- Take control of time and eliminate the sense of urgency that keeps you anxious
- Focus on new opportunities--not on your fear of failure
- Embrace uncertainty instead of searching for perfect solutions
- Stop the most common safety behaviors that you think make things better--but actually make things worse
Designed to address general worries as well as the unique issues surrounding some of the most common areas of worry--relationships, health, money, work, and the need for approval--"The Worry Cure" is for everyone, from the chronic worrier to the occasional ruminator. It's time to stop thinking you're "just a worrier" who can't change and start using the groundbreaking methods in "The Worry Cure "to achieve the healthier, more successful life you deserve.

Review by Library Journal (2005-11-01)

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about four million Americans-more of them women-experience generalized anxiety disorder. These two books aim to help sufferers. Women Who Worry Too Much opens with an introduction by Michelle G. Craske that explains her research into how differently men and women deal with worry. Hazlett-Stevens (psychology, Univ. of Nevada, Reno; coauthor, New Directions in Progressive Relaxation Training) then discusses her cognitive behavioral therapy research before suggesting practical steps (e.g., gain a new perspective and then use relaxation and mindfulness techniques to redirect one's energy) for tackling various types of worry.

Hazlett-Stevens weaves her scientific knowledge into an engaging and easy-to-read text that departs from the traditional emphasis on rationalizing away one's worry, and readers will be attracted to her spa retreat-like exercises. Leahy (Cognitive Therapy Techniques: A Practitioner's Guide) takes a different approaching to worry busting, focusing on outlining a system for transforming thought processes. Beginning with the "seven rules of Highly Worried People", he progresses logically through seven concrete steps that readers can take to control their worry.

While not necessarily providing ground breaking insights, this book will appeal to many for its clearly outlined chapters with pertinent summaries, which make it both easy to read and to consult at a later date. Both books are appropriate and recommended for general self-help collections.

Book description

You wish you didn’t spend as much time worrying as you do, but you just can’t seem to help it. Worrying feels like second nature. It’s what helps you solve your problems and prevents you from making mistakes. It’s what motivates you to be prepared—if you didn’t worry, things might get out of hand. Worry protects you, prepares you, and keeps you safe.

Is it working? Or is it making you tense, tired, anxious, uncertain—and more worried?

For more than twenty-five years, Dr. Robert L. Leahy has successfully helped thousands of people defeat the worry that is holding them back. The Worry Cure is his new, comprehensive approach to help you identify, challenge, and overcome all types of worry, using the most recent research and his more than two decades of experience in treating patients.

• Identify productive and unproductive worry

• Take control of time and eliminate the sense of urgency that keeps you anxious

• Embrace uncertainty instead of searching for perfect solutions

• Stop the most common safety behaviors that you think make things better—but actually make things worse
