Product Description

Review

'Think of this book as a great skating instructor. Shyness and social anxiety push us to stay at the edge of the social skating rink, grasping tightly to a safety bar. Vitality and involvement cannot happen there. This book takes you by the hand and teaches you how to maintain your balance and choose your direction while in the open rink of full social participation. Are you fed up with living at the anxious edge of life? Release your grip on the safety bar and grab this book instead-it's time to go for it.
- Steven C. Hayes , PhD , foundation professor of psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno and author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life 'This well-written, accessible workbook describes a new approach for coping with social anxiety and shyness based on rigorous research by the authors and others. This book is an excellent resource for anyone who experiences anxiety in social and performance situations. I strongly recommend it!'
- Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP , professor of psychology at Ryerson University and author of The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook 'This beautifully written book will benefit anyone suffering from shyness and social anxiety. The authors have a deep understanding and compassion for these difficulties, and their book is full of interesting and helpful exercises, all clearly explained and organized.'
-Ruth Baer , PhD , professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky, and editor of Mindfulness-Based Treatment Approaches and Assessing Mindfulness and Acceptance Processes in Clients 'Jan Fleming and Nancy Kocovski have created a highly accessible guide to support the journey from anxiety to calm, from worry to clarity, for those who experience stress in the face of social engagements and new situations. Built upon carefully studied clinical applications and the rigorous science of focusing the mind in an open and peaceful way, this practical handbook offers health-creating relief for anyone with an anxious disposition-especially those with social anxiety and shyness-so that they can find the inner peace and interpersonal confidence needed to live their lives with more ease and well-being. Congratulations to the authors for bringing the research-proven benefits of mindfulness to the lives of so many who are sure to benefit from their empirically-proven and practical suggestions!'
-Daniel J. Siegel, MD , executive director at the Mindsight Institute, clinical professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and author of Mindsight, The Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology , and The Mindful Brain 'This book captures the most cutting-edge approaches for managing one of the most common, chronic, and debilitating psychological problems. Instead of trying to manage or get rid of social anxiety, the authors offer a shift in thinking toward how anxiety is transformed with an open, receptive attitude, and how a person can make progress toward meaningful life pursuits despite the presence of doubt and social fears. Many people will be helped by the insights in this workbook.'
- Todd B. Kashdan , PhD , associate professor of psychology at George Mason University and author of Curious? Discover the Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Life 'The authors bring their expertise and caring approach to each of the well-thought-out steps that lead to reducing anxiety over a wide range of situations. The specific therapeutic techniques of acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness are translated very skillfully into exercises that lead the reader gradually, step by step, to being able to look at their own anxiety in new ways.'
-Richard P. Swinson, MD, FRCPC , professor emeritus at Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, and author of The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook "

Format: Paperback
Finally, a practical workbook for real situations. I suffered needlessly attending book club, never feeling my comments were worthy. I always said the least, retreating to the safety of silence. After applying the strategies from this workbook you wouldn't know I was that formerly quiet book club member. Particularly helpful were the audio downloads of the mindfulness exercises. Practicing them in the comfort of my own home made it easier to use them at book club meetings. Drs. Fleming and Kocovski, where were you ten years ago?

If you have social anxiety, I'm confident this book will help you.

Format: Paperback
In this book, the authors provide readers with the opportunity to better understand and come to terms with, their shyness and social anxiety. Through a variety of real-world examples, readers are reassured that they are not alone in their feelings of anxiety, and are encouraged to gradually work towards applying the provided strategies. While this book would undoubtedly be helpful for those struggling with social anxiety, I also found it useful in learning to better understand my own shyness and worries in everyday social situations.

Format: Paperback
I read a few books on the subject prior to this one and always got lost in the theoretical details. This is the first book that encourages to take action and to look at the different ways our social anxiety and shyness affect us in our day to day lives. Also quite concise so you get moving and see some results faster. I am very thankful for this workbook.
