Stress Control

A Mind, Body, Life Approach to Boosting Wellbeing

By Jim White

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

An authoritative and readily accessible wellbeing book for treating common mental health problems with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Stress is part and parcel of life. We all get it. Think of blood pressure. If you are alive, you have blood pressure. If you are alive, you have stress. If your blood pressure gets too high, you should do something about it. The same is true with stress and this book will help you to control it.

Stress can be a mixture of anxiety, depression, panic feelings, poor sleep, low self-confidence, low self-esteem and a poor sense of wellbeing. It is one of the most common problems in the world today. But controlling your stress doesn't have to mean expensive therapy or a long waiting list for a referral to a service. This book will teach you to become your own therapist:

· Learn about stress and how it affects you
· Follow straight-forward steps to get an instant sense of control
· Develop a set of linked skills for long-term stress management
· Boost your wellbeing
· Feel in control of your future

This accessible, jargon-free book combines clinically proven methods from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), positive psychology and mindfulness to give you the tools you need to improve your mind, your body and your life.

Overcoming Traumatic Stress, 2nd Edition

Claudia Herbert
Authors:
Claudia Herbert

Those who go through a catastrophic life experience often feel permanently changed by the impact of what has happened. They become numb and shut off from those around them and grief or guilt may constantly weigh them down. Memories of horrifying scenes may intrude unexpectedly during waking hours while sleep may be disturbed by vivid, unpleasant dreams. Traumatic stress responses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD), are psychological conditions that result from a person's coping resources having been completely overwhelmed by a terrible experience. These 'flashbacks' can be so severe that sufferers may feel that they are losing their sanity and subsequently become isolated in their distress. This book demonstrates, with practical advice and tested exercises, how to find new, effective ways of coping with, and finally overcoming, traumatic stress.Overcoming self-help guides use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to treat disorders by changing unhelpful patterns of behaviour and thought. CBT is internationally favoured as a practical means of overcoming long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. Many guides in the Overcoming series are recommended by the UK Department of Health under the Books on Prescription scheme.

We Need To Talk

Celeste Headlee
Authors:
Celeste Headlee

Take a moment to consider how many outcomes in your life may have been affected by poor communication skills. Could you have gotten a job you really wanted? Saved a relationship? What about that political conversation that got out of hand at a dinner party? How is it that we so often fail to say the right thing at the right time?In her career as an NPR host, journalist Celeste Headlee has interviewed hundreds of people from all walks of life, and if there's one thing she's learned, it's that it's hard to overestimate the power of conversation and its ability to both bridge gaps and deepen wounds. In We Need to Talk, she shares what she's learned on the job about how to have effective, meaningful, and respectful conversations in every area of our lives.Now more than ever, Headlee argues, we must begin to talk to and, more importantly, listen to one another - including those with whom we disagree. We Need to Talk gives readers ten simple tools to help facilitate better conversations, ranging from the errors we routinely make (put down the smart phone when you're face to face with someone) to the less obvious blind spots that can sabotage any conversation, including knowing when not to talk, being aware of our own bias, and avoiding putting yourself in the centre of the discussion.Whether you're gearing up for a big conversation with your boss, looking to deepen or improve your connection with a relative, or trying to express your child's needs to a teacher, We Need to Talk will arm you with the skills you need to create a productive dialogue.
