About the Book

If you suffer from anxiety, or symptoms of anxiety, there are real steps you can take to change the way your body responds. For example, progressive relaxation of muscles can reduce your pulse rate, blood pressure, and can work in much the same way as anti-anxiety medication. In this New Harbinger Self-Help Essential, you will learn to distinguish between tense and relaxed muscles, progressively relax all of the muscles in your body, and relax quickly in stressful situations.

New Harbinger Self-Help Essentials provide simple, effective exercises that you can use now to make lasting changes. This Essential is drawn from The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook, which details easy, step-by-step techniques for calming the body and mind in an increasingly overstimulated world. Now in its sixth edition, this workbook, highly regarded by therapists and their clients, remains the go-to source for stress reduction strategies that can be incorporated into even the busiest lives.

The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

Praise

Praise for The Relaxation & Stress Reduction Workbook:

"This comprehensive workbook deserves to be in the library of every active therapist, but it shouldn't be left on the shelf! Once again, the authors have empowered the reader with straightforward instructions on every major approach to stress management known. From worry to chronic headaches to information overload, here is your one-stop guide to recovery."
-R. Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Don't Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks

"This text remains, after twenty years, the clearest, best-organized, and most readable book on stress management. It has achieved the status of the ‘classic’ self-help reference in the field."
—Edmund J. Bourne, PhD, author of The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook, Coping with Anxiety, and Beyond Anxiety and Phobia

"An exemplary book on stress. It is lucidly written, rationally ordered, and comprehensive, and each section is densely packed with instructions and exercises which make the workbook easy to practice."
