Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) offers a set of skills for managing emotional distress that are useful for all people, but can be especially beneficial for anxiety sufferers who are prone to panic attacks, exaggerated worries and fears, and obsessive and compulsive behaviours. Although these skills are not currently taught in many anxiety treatment programs, new research shows that they can dramatically improve anxiety symptoms and related problems that people with anxiety face.

The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for Anxiety presents a DBT-based program for overcoming anxiety that helps readers discover and apply the core DBT skills, practice developing assertiveness, and learn to deal with conflict and anxiety-provoking situations. The book also includes strategies drawn from cognitive behavioural therapy, the traditional therapeutic treatment for anxiety, and shows how the two approaches can be used together to defeat anxious thoughts and impulses and put an end to anxiety-related flashbacks, nightmares, stress, panic attacks, and avoidance.
