Dealing With Panic The CBT Way | eBook
This 33-page e-Book is a self-help guide for dealing with panic disorder the CBT way. It will tell you all you need to know about panic disorder (including agoraphobia). You’ll also learn how to treat it using the most effective, scientifically proven method known to man.
It’s written by clinical psychologist and CBT specialist Dr Colinda Linde, who has been treating panic disorder, and the agoraphobia which often accompanies it, for 25 years. This e-book is the result of that experience. It’s also a response to the many requests she’s had to make it available in writing.
“CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) is a short-term form of therapy based on a huge amount of research,” says Dr Linde. “That means we know it works and why. I know it too, because I’ve seen it produce effective results again and again. This guide is based on two things: my formal training, and the learning through experience that I’ve gained over the past 25 years.”
Who should read it?
This book will be of value, firstly, to people who have experienced panic attack symptoms. It will be especially valuable for those who are worried it may happen again. It will be equally useful to people for whom that worry and consequent avoidance has already led to panic disorder and/or agoraphobia. The book can also add value to people who know and are attempting to support the group mentioned above. It will even benefit trauma and hotline counselors and psychologists who come across this theme from time to time.
The book begins by describing panic – what it is, how it starts, and why it becomes a pattern. It covers the “right” (functional) and “wrong” (dysfunctional) ways to deal with panic. The “right way to deal with panic” section explains the three main areas of CBT treatment for panic, in a simple and practical manner.
NOTE If your panic is so severe that the information in the book does not make sense, or is not possible for you to implement effectively, please make an appointment with a medical and/or mental health professional.
