Review

The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety combines the accumulated wisdom of the ages with up-to-date, cutting-edge developments in scientific psychology. In an easy-to-read and fun format, those suffering from anxiety in all of its guises will find the keys to breaking loose from its shackles. By emphasizing acceptance of toxic emotions (and illustrating ways to accomplish this), rather than struggling to overcome them, the person inside you may finally emerge to set your life on a new, productive, and valued course. Highly recommended for all those struggling with worry, anxiety, and fear.
-David H. Barlow, PhD, professor of psychology and psychiatry at Boston University and author of Anxiety and Its Disorders

Ably surfing the dual currents of traditional exposure and acceptance-based treatments for anxiety, the authors of this resourceful workbook illustrate the synergies to be found in their combination. Carefully structured charts and patient assignments support the core message that taking action to face one's fears is most effective if acceptance informs our starting point and values determine our destination. This book is a must-read" for anyone encountering anxiety as a barrier to leading afuller life.
-Zindel Segal, PhD, Morgan Firestone Chair in Psychotherapy, head of the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Unit at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, all at the University of Toronto, and author of The Mindful Way Through Depression

If you suffer with anxiety, Forsyth and Eifert have given you a gift. It is not a structured manual for how to get over your anxiety as much as it is a book of wisdom. They raise the inevitable truth that anxiety is a part of all of us, and they show us the way, through willingness, compassion, mindfulness, and acceptance of ourselves and others, to live a life worth the living, to understand our important values and to live in concert with them. This is a book well worth the reading, andits message is worth keeping close to your heart.
-Richard G. Heimberg, PhD, professor of psychology and director of the Adult Anxiety Clinic of Temple University

Steeped in the rich tradition of psychological theory, The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety by Forsyth and Eifert represents a major advance for the practical treatment of anxiety and related conditions. This book will assist clinicians and patients in constructing a treatment plan that insures progress in overcoming the many obstacles associated with conquering fears. A major contribution to clinical care, this workbook will contribute to the growing knowledge base on acceptance and commitment therapy, joining other evidence-based approaches as a major tool for treating the disabling symptoms that accompany anxiety.
-Terence M. Keane, PhD, chief of psychology service at the VA Boston Healthcare System, director of the Behavioral Science Division of the National Center for PTSD, and professor and vice-chair for research of the Division of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine

In this impressive workbook, Forsyth and Eifert show how giving up your attempts to control anxiety and fear will help you to leave your anxiety problems behind and get on with your life. This clearly written book is packed with helpful suggestions. I will definitely use it with my own clients and students, and I recommend it highly for anyone who struggles with anxiety.
-Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, professor and director of graduate training in the Department of Psychology at Ryerson University in Toronto, ON, Canada

This book presents a framework to orient you toward the rest of your life. You will be taken on a journey. Go. To uncouple from your anxious reactions to life, you will need to alter your consciousness. No small task! It takes a student's mind and a willingness to be coached. Fortunately, you will find these authors to be trustworthy and competent guides.
-Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Don't Panic

This book presents a radically different approach to anxiety than other common methods like cognitive behavioral therapy or psychotherapy. I was relieved to find a system of treatment that focused on allowing me to live with anxiety NOW and do the things I wanted to do, accepting it as just one part of many that made up my life, instead of focusing all my time and energy on finding "a cure". This workbook allows you to free yourself from all your complex anxiety management techniques and just live your life mindfully, working towards the goals and values that you prioritize. Some techniques are similar to CBT (for example, there are elements of exposure therapy), but it is less mechanistic, with fewer constant worksheets, and a more holistic approach to health. I suggest this book for people who feel that so many anxiety treatments have failed them. The book can be done solo, but it is helpful to work through it with a peer or a counselor.

An excellent book! The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety is put together professionally and well worth purchasing. It comes with a CD of exercises to practice at home. This workbook can be a "life changer" if the user is honest and committed to doing the work.

It's nice to have a 'self help' book that acts as a workbook as well. Very well written and really makes you think. I recommend it.

This book is really helping me, I was advised by my therapist to order it and I am happy she did. It really makes you think about yourself, some of the questions are difficult just because you really have to take a look at yourself. But it is amazing and I am happy I took her advice and bought it!

A great resource for handling anxiety. A lot of work to actually get through it completely, but well worth it. Note that this does not replace seeing a doctor, which should be a first step if you find anxiety is seriously impacting your life.

This is a great book, I've been reading it for about a year, (yes I'm slow, I would keep going back to it) I finally finished it. I don't do all the exercises as much as I should, I think that will come with time. I am very appreciative though of the new skills it taught me when overwhelming feelings come up. Also toward the end of the book is a plan you can prepare when you feel you are starting to go into depression which I found very useful. I think it takes awhile to practice and really get the hang of the exercises, but then it is worth it, it will be a lifelong skill. This method plus reading about skills to help you think positively is what seems to be helping me the most.
