Anyone, either suffering from excessive anxiety or treating it, will benefit enormously from listening to this informative CD.

Stress overload, panic attacks, social anxiety, nightmares, phobias, post traumatic stress (PTSD) and other distressing anxiety disorders like obsessive compulsions (OCD) are just some of the topics dealt with. This well-researched information will give you more confidence when dealing with any of these problems. For example, the refined version of the ‘fast phobia’ cure, or 'rewind technique' — the safest and quickest way to treat phobias, traumatic memories and OCD — is explained, as is how to train people to stop having panic attacks.

Other topics covered include:

  • Stress symptoms and their effects on the body and physical health;
  • Why strong feelings of apprehension can develop because of difficulties at work, poor relationships, financial insecurity, health worries or loss of status;
  • The role dreaming plays in anxiety management;
  • Extroverts and introverts;
  • The connection between anxiety and depression;
  • Anxious feelings caused by difficulties at work, poor relationships, past trauma, financial insecurity, health worries, loss of status etc.;
  • Losing control: why, whenever innate emotional needs are not met and a person feels threatened, anxiety symptoms arise.

About the author(s)

Joe GriffinJoe Griffin is a social psychologist with graduate and postgraduate degrees from the LSE. He has had many years experience both in psychotherapeutic practice and in training psychotherapists.

Scientific reviewers around the world have described his research on dreaming with such phrases as, “The bridge between neurophysiology and psychology... rigorously scientific... an important milestone... moves our understanding on significantly... a watershed in our exploration of the evolution of mental processes... a major key to the nature of all psychic states.” He is co-author with Ivan Tyrrell of five landmark monographs about advances in psychological interventions for emotional disturbances and numerous best-selling books, including How to lift depression...fast, Freedom from Addiction and Why we dream: the definitive answer.

Joe has two daughters and lives with his wife, Liz, in a small medieval town by the river Barrow in rural Ireland.

Ivan TyrrellIvan Tyrrell's interest in psychology stems from a childhood experience of undergoing surgery under hypnosis. For twenty years he studied the comparative effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling models, linking this to what science is discovering about the brain and mind/body/mood connections. As Editorial Director of the Human Givens Journal he has collaborated on many major articles with a variety of distinguished clinicians, writers and other individuals with a focus on psychology, social issues and mental health.

Ivan worked for many years as a psychotherapist and lecturer and is now director of Human Givens College. He founded the Human Givens Institute. He has one son and three daughters and lives with his wife, Véronique, in the Cotswold countryside.
