Sky Is Falling: Understanding and Coping with Phobias, Panic and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders

Sky Is Falling: Understanding and Coping with Phobias, Panic and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, is available to buy through The Potential Shop.

It is estimated that between 14-20 million Americans suffer from some sort of anxiety or panic disorder (and including myself, more than a few foreigners too). Many lives are consumed with phobias and irrational fears, and many lives are blighted as a result. In this book Dr Raeann Dumont suggests that these fears develop as a result of magical thinking, a process by which conclusions develop without the presence of a rational thought process. This book presents examples through case studies, such as a woman experiencing panic attacks in public places, a man whose intense phobias ended his marriage and resulted in his alcoholism, and a young boy who refuses food due to a phobia of being poisoned. The doctor offers cognitive therapy and self-help techniques as practical guidance for recognizing irrational thought processes, and working towards overcoming them.

This book is an invaluable resource to sufferers, their families and therapists alike. Those with a more general interest in CBT might also find it useful.
