    What Is The Best Panic and Anxiety Workbook?
    illneverbackdown posted:
    I was told that workbooks help with panic and anxiety disorder, and after searching on Google, many different workbooks came up. Does anyone actually know of one that has worked or is helpful? Thanks!

    The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook by Edmund J. Bourne is quite good. I used it years ago when I was suffering pretty badly from panic disorder and agoraphobia and found it to be very helpful. This is also the first book my psychologist (who is amazing, by the way) suggests to people who have anxiety conditions.

    the anixety and phobia workbook is great. one that my psychologist recommended was the mindfulness and acceptance workbook for anxiety: a guide to breaking free from anxiety, phobias and worry using acceptance and commitment therapy by john p. forsyth and georg h. eifert. i just started using this workbook and i find it very helpful, it talks about how to accept anxiety, and how to take charge of your life. in my opinion, reading and learning from books like this can really help you in the long run without having to turn to medicine because you really can develop new thinking and skills from books like this. im sure any anxiety book out there will be helpful also. good luck!
