Présentation de l'éditeur
You can't just "get over" anxiety. In fact, the very things most people do to try to feel better--avoiding feared situations, pushing worry out of mind--only make the problem worse. Leading psychologists Susan M. Orsillo and Lizabeth Roemer present a powerful new alternative that can help you break free of anxiety by fundamentally changing how you relate to it. With clarity and compassion, this book describes clinically tested mindfulness practices specifically tailored for anxiety in its many forms. Learn step-by-step strategies for gaining awareness of anxious feelings without letting them escalate; loosening the grip of worry and fear; and achieving a new level of emotional and physical well-being. Free audio downloads of mindfulness exercises plus other resources are available at the authors' website, www.mindfulwaythroughanxietybook.com.

1) Become so consumed with how anxious you feel and then harshly judge yourself for doing so?
2) Do whatever you can to escape feeling the anxiety?
3) Try to avoid whatever triggers the anxiety?
If so, this book will likely change your world--from the inside out. It's not about changing your anxiety, but about changing the relationship you have with your internal experience of anxiety and the associated uncomfortable emotions. And, the first step to changing this relationship is to understand these truths that the authors have discovered from years of research and their own clinical and personal experiences:
--Anxiety is universal, adaptive, and functional
--Anxious thoughts and associated emotions do not necessarily your control behavior
--Trying to control (or avoid) your anxiety typically causes more distress
Once you've grasped these truths, you'll be ready to start embracing the concept of mindfulness. In contrast to anxiety which narrows attention and focuses on threats, mindfulness expands our attention and helps us more fully engage in our lives. As the authors explain, the goal of mindfulness is "to change the relationship you have with your thoughts and feelings, to bring some curiosity and compassion to the responses you have, to learn to tune in to your emotions and understand how they pull you to respond in certain ways, and to being some flexibility and choice to the actions you have." (p. 166)
The practice of mindfulness revolves around the three steps of observation, curiosity, and self-compassion, and ultimately allows you to: increase your present-moment focus and clarify your awareness; turn towards your emotions (instead of running from them or trying to control them); and make valued choices to help you live a full meaningful life.
So, if you're tired of being a prisoner of your anxiety, here is your chance to break free. Imagine being able to make choices based on wants instead of fears! And, after reading this book, you'll be able to transform that fantasy into reality.
Of course, some people must like this, or they wouldn't write like this. Just a matter of taste, I guess. But if you don't and you'd like to read about mindfulness as therapy, you might try the brilliant "The Mindful Way Through Depression"(which has a few case-studies but not nearly so many) or anything by Jon Kabat-Zinn. However, these books don't deal exclusively with anxiety.
