She provides a useful decision tree of interventions for both GAD and panic to keep treatment focused. Then, within that simple structure, Dr. Abel gifts us with 86 practical strategies to help us move our clients from coping to thriving.”
- Reid Wilson, Ph.D, Author of Don’t Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks
“This detailed, well-written guide provides practical, step-by-step instructions in a wide range of evidence-based strategies, including cognitive approaches, exposure, relaxation, and acceptance-based treatments. In addition, unlike most other books on treating anxiety, this book includes helpful chapters on treating associated problems, such as perfectionism, procrastination, and health anxiety. Dr. Abel provides an excellent roadmap for the treatment of anxiety, worry, and panic, for both novice therapists and seasoned clinicians.”
- Martin M. Antony, Ph.D., ABPP, Author of Anti-Anxiety Workbook
“In this concise guide to treating panic and worry, Jennifer Abel gives her innovative ideas for handling familiar techniques to every therapist who treats clients with anxiety. Her concepts of early identification of the anxiety spiral, handling exposure, using interceptive exposure and especially her handling of familiar techniques like breathing, relaxation and in vivo exposure demonstrate her impressive practical experience that is well-founded in research. Highlighting pitfalls and obstacles to utilizing these methods, Abel takes us through the recovery process with optimism that we can help people with even the most resistant form of anxiety.”
