When anxious feelings spiral out of control, they can drain your energy and prevent you from living the life you want. If you're ready to stop letting your anxiety have the upper hand, The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Anxiety, Second Edition can help you to recognise your anxiety triggers, develop skills to stop anxious thoughts before they take over, and keep needless fears from coming back.

In the second edition of this best-selling workbook, William J. Knaus offers a step-by-step program to help you overcome anxiety and get back to living a rich and productive life. With this book, you will develop a personal wellness plan using techniques from rational emotive behaviour therapy (REBT) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), powerful treatment methods proven to be even more effective than anxiety medication. This edition includes new evidence-based techniques such as behavioural activation and values-based action, addresses perfectionism and anxiety, and features updated, cutting-edge research.

Anxiety and panic are intense emotions, and in the moments that you experience them it may seem like you are powerless, but nothing could be further from the truth. This workbook offers a practical program that you can use on your own, or with a therapist, to take back that power and end anxiety once and for all.

"In this recent revision, Knaus has provided the reader with an up-to-date and comprehensive description of anxiety and the role it can play in our now all-too-complicated and demanding lives. More importantly, he gives the reader those essential and valuable tools he or she needs to better cope with and reduce modern day stress and anxiety. I strongly recommend this book to the lay reader and professional alike. This book is truly a gem!"
- Allen Elkin, PhD, in private practice in New York, NY, and author of Stress Management for Dummies

"Outstanding manual that offers a comprehensive approach to change that covers the major areas of anxiety. Uniquely emphasizes the links between anxiety and common co-occurring conditions, such as procrastination and indecision. The book shows how to combat anxiety cognitions, build emotional tolerance, use imagery for relaxation, engage in problem-solving behaviors, and apply tested techniques for solving more than one emotional problem simultaneously. It features self-contracts at the end of each chapter to reinforce change."
- Janet Wolfe, PhD, former executive director of the Albert Ellis Institute and staff psychologist for thirty-five years, as well as author or coauthor of multiple books, including What to Do When He Has a Headache

"Knaus has done it again with an important update to his best-selling book The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Anxiety. Not only is this a self-help manual, but it could also be used as a college textbook in a counseling psychology course. It is astonishingly well written, and the coverage is detailed and thorough. As a self-help manual it offers a clear, step-by-step solution to the dilemma of depression and anxiety. It gets the reader moving and changing, because it demands that the reader be involved enough to take active steps. This is not for the passively disengaged, but for those who are willing to participate in their own recovery process (which is essential to the overall healing). As a textbook it is a foundational source for a true understanding of cognitive behavioral therapy, which has been proven to be today's most effective therapeutic technique. And in this case you will be reading words from the master, as Knaus himself has contributed greatly to the creation of this important therapeutic breakthrough."
