About this item

Are you plagued by fears, phobias, or panic attacks? Do you toss and turn at night with a knot in your stomach, worrying about your job, your family, work, your health, or relationships? Do you suffer from crippling shyness, obsessive doubts, or feelings of insecurity?

What you may not realize is that these fears are almost never based on reality. Anxiety is one of the worlds oldest cons. When youre anxious, youre actually fooling yourself. You are telling yourself things that simply arent true. See if you can recognize yourself in any of these distortions:

All-or-Nothing Thinking: My mind will go blank when I give my presentation at work, and everyone will think Im an idiot.

Fortune Telling: I just know Ill freeze up and blow it when I take my test.

Mind Reading: Everyone at this party can see how nervous I am.

Magnification: Flying is so dangerous. I think this plane is going to crash!

Should Statements: I shouldnt be so anxious and insecure. Other people dont feel this way.

Emotional Reasoning: I feel like Im on the verge of cracking up!

Self-Blame: Whats wrong with me? Im such a loser!

Mental Filter: Why cant I get anything done? My life seems like one long procrastination.

Now imagine what it be like to live a life thats free of worries and self-doubt; to go to sleep at night feeling peaceful and relaxed; to overcome your shyness and have fun with other people; to give dynamic presentations without worrying yourself sick ahead of time; to enjoy greater creativity, productivity and self-confidence.

Does that sound impossible? The truth is you can defeat your fears. In When Panic Attacks, Dr. Burns takes you by the hand and shows you how to overcome every conceivable kind of anxiety. In fact, you will learn how to use more than forty simple, effective techniques, and the moment you put the lie to the distorted thoughts that plague you, your fears will immediately disappear. Dr. Burns also shares the latest research on the drugs commonly prescribed for anxiety and depression and explains why they may sometimes do more harm than good.

This is not pop psychology but proven, fast-acting techniques that have been shown to be more effective than medications. When Panic Attacks is an indispensable handbook for anyone whos worried sick and sick of worrying.

Controlling Your Panic

Customer review by Walmartshoppersteven

5.0 stars by Walmartshoppersteven

Instead of allowing the boogieman of panic control you, one must learn its origin. Panic is a reaction from within. Some of us are more prone to anxiety than are other people. My ex used to call me a “scary cat.” I told her to write me a poem; she declined. Those of us, who have sensitive nervous systems, have it for a reason. However, sometimes, this alarm system has a mind of its own, goes off sending me a warning, which I find hard to shut off. In addition, I also recommend two other books by David D. Burns: Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Revised and Updated and The Feeling Good Handbook. Feeling Good will focus specifically on Depression and The Feeling Good Handbook is for other uncomfortable feelings and negative thoughts.
