OVERCOMING UNWANTED INTRUSIVE THOUGHTS
A CBT-Based Guide to Getting Over Frightening ,
60 million people in the US suffer from unwanted, intrusive thoughts.
Sally M. Winston served as chair of the Clinical Advisory Board of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA).
For readers plagued by unwanted, intrusive, or even disturbing thoughts— thoughts that scare them or that they can't tell anyone—this book may be a life changer. In this compassionate guide, readers will discover different kinds of unwanted thoughts, myths that surround thoughts, and how the brain has a tendency to get “stuck” in a cycle of rumination. They'll also learn why common techniques to get rid of these thoughts can backfire. Finally, they'll learn powerful cognitive behavioral skills to help cope with and move beyond their thoughts—without dread, guilt, or shame.
