When it comes to anxiety, knowledge is a calming power. Therapists and the clients they treat benefit from understanding how anxiety is generated in the brain, how it can become panic or unbounded worry, and how the brain reestablishes the neurochemical balance that is basic to a state of well-being. Rich in neurophysiological diagrams and practical exercises that target the activity of specific neurological mechanisms, this book shows us how to take control of our brains to alleviate various anxiety disorders.
