Excerpts

The stressful society we live in provides a backdrop for the increasing prevalence of anxiety disorders seen in recent years. Broad societal conditions, such as ongoing economic recession, wage inequality, political polarization, and environmental pollution – as well as more immediate problems with the health care system, schools, urban congestion, the food industry, and technological complexity – all contribute to the stressful times in which we live. In such as society, many people feel anxious, and some go on to develop anxiety disorders.

Fortunately, good help for anxiety and its disorders is available. It is my hope that the variety of interventions offered in this book will provide you with a wide range of resources to better cope with anxiety in all the forms in which it can show up in these times of change.
