The Sheldon Short Guide to Phobias and Panic



For many people, life is made intolerable by phobias. Common fears may range from crowded places to a fear of spiders or blood, but, the basic underlying mechanism is the same - acute anxiety. This book looks at how to tackle both specific phobias and the anxiety which causes such disproportionate fear, and covers obsessive-compulsive disorder, social phobia, generalized anxiety state, and panic disorder with agoraphobia.
Other topics include:

Causes of anxiety and phobias
Professional help and how to get it
Planning a self-help programme
Panic disorder and agoraphobia
Dealing with catastrophic thoughts
Lifestyle tools - exercise, relaxation, diet, alcohol, time management
