This practical guide provides clear guidelines for anxiety or stress management for a wide range of disorders. It is appropriate for use by psychologists and non-psychologists, and is suitable for trainees and fully qualified health or occupational professionals alike. The new edition contains more comprehensive client information sheets to promote self-help. Also, the scope of book has been broadened to include new sections on post-traumatic stress disorder and executive stress or burnout for therapist guidance and self-help sections on assertiveness and time management.
