"In mental health treatment, there is an increasing appreciation of the importance of emotion regulation--the skills that allow people to effectively cope with painful feelings--and the fact that people can learn more effective strategies for emotion regulation. In Don't Let Your Anxiety Run Your Life, David Klemanski and Joshua Curtiss take the reader step by step through the emerging science of emotion regulation, and illustrate how to apply that knowledge to everyday life. I heartily recommend this book for anyone who wants to master unwanted anxiety, and I anticipate that a lot of readers are going to find it extremely helpful." --David F. Tolin, PhD, ABPP, author of Face Your Fears "Most experts agree that anxiety and the closely related emotion of fear are fundamental to the human condition, and serve a valuable function by helping us avoid danger, adapt, and even plan for the future. And yet in our society individuals spend billions of dollars yearly to rid themselves of anxiety. The problem is that these fundamental emotions so necessary for our survival become excessive and pervasive in some individuals to the extent that their lives become paralyzed. Fortunately, our understanding of the nature of these emotions has advanced dramatically in the past several decades. Now, two outstanding young clinicians and scientists studying the nature and treatment of anxiety have distilled their cutting-edge knowledge to provide an integrative, easy-to-read and apply program for excessive anxiety and fear. Representing the latest and most effective techniques available, every individual suffering from anxiety will benefit by becoming acquainted with this program." --David H.
