Overcoming Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts Book Excerpt:

You are not your thoughts! In this powerful book, two anxiety experts offer proven-effective cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills to help you get unstuck from disturbing thoughts, overcome the shame these thoughts can bring, and reduce your anxiety. If you suffer from unwanted, intrusive, frightening, or even disturbing thoughts, you might worry about what these thoughts mean about you. Thoughts can seem like messages—are they trying to tell you something? But the truth is that they are just thoughts, and don’t necessarily mean anything. Sane and good people have them. If you are someone who is plagued by thoughts you don’t want—thoughts that scare you, or thoughts you can’t tell anyone about—this book may change your life. In this compassionate guide, you’ll discover the different kinds of disturbing thoughts, myths that surround your thoughts, and how your brain has a tendency to get “stuck” in a cycle of unwanted rumination. You’ll also learn why common techniques to get rid of these thoughts can backfire. And finally, you’ll learn powerful cognitive behavioral skills to help you cope with and move beyond your thoughts, so you can focus on living the life you want. Your thoughts will still occur, but you will be better able to cope with them—without dread, guilt, or shame. If you have unwanted thoughts, you should remember that you aren’t alone. In fact, there are millions of people just like you—good people who have awful thoughts, gentle people with violent thoughts, and sane people with “crazy” thoughts. This book will show you how to move past your thoughts so you can reclaim your life! This book has been selected as an Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Book Recommendation—an honor bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties.

Summary of Sally M Winston and Martin N Seif s Overcoming Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Intrusive thoughts are common, but for most people they are quickly forgotten and create minimal or no discomfort. They are uninvited thoughts that jump into the mind and do not seem to be part of the ongoing flow of intentional thinking. #2 Unwanted intrusive thoughts are when you think about something that is not welcome, and you try to push it out of your mind, but it keeps coming back. It may be aggressive, sexual, taboo, anxiety-provoking, or self-derogatory. #3 There are three voices that are relevant to the problem of unwanted intrusive thoughts: the voice of What if. which predicts disasters and awful outcomes, the voice of False Comfort, and the voice of Wise Mind. #4 Wise Mind is calm, unimpressed, and unaffected by the constant arguments between Worried Voice and False Comfort. It knows that False Comfort is actually spurring Worried Voice on, and it is curious and sometimes even amused by things that upset the others.

Needing to Know for Sure Book Excerpt:

Powerful skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you break free from the fear of uncertainty and put a stop to compulsive checking and reassurance seeking. “How do I know I made the right decision?” “What if I’m wrong?” “I need to know for sure.” Do you have thoughts like these—thoughts that cause you to second-guess yourself, and lead to anxiety, stress, and worry? Do you find yourself repeatedly checking your email for no reason, asking others for their opinions about something again and again, or lying awake at night overanalyzing and planning ahead in an attempt to feel less anxious? If so, you probably have a problem with compulsive reassurance seeking. The good news is that you can break free from this “reassurance trap”—this book will show you how. In this unique guide, you’ll find proven-effective tips and tools using CBT to help you tolerate uncertainty, face specific worrying scenarios, and gradually reduce the compulsion to incessantly seek reassurance. Most importantly, you’ll learn to deal with those pesky “doubt attacks” and trust your own judgment. Asking for reassurance is a self-reinforcing behavior—if you do it, you’re less likely to handle stressful situations without needing further reassurance. And so the cycle continues. The CBT skills in this book will help you break this exhausting and painful pattern, so you can build self-confidence and improve your life.

Fu k Anxiety Book Excerpt:

Are your ideas imprisoning you? I'll never be good enough. Other individuals have better lifestyles than I have. God couldn't possibly love me. Dr. Walid Bouaskeur understands what it's like to be engulfed in a vortex of negative ideas, but she also understands that we don't have to be trapped in poisonous thought patterns. God created a method for us to escape the downward cycle, as she learned in her own life. Freedom occurs when we refuse to be victims of our ideas and recognize that God has already given us the ability to fight and win the battle for our minds. Dr Walid encourages and prepares us in Get Out of Your Head to alter our emotions, attitude, and even our situations by taking charge of our ideas. Our adversary is desperate to infiltrate our minds in order to make us feel powerless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for God's kingdom. But when we surrender our attention to Christ, God's promises and goodness flood our lives in amazing ways. It all starts in your mind. The options are infinite from there.

Complex Borderline Personality Disorder Book Excerpt:

There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment for BPD—especially if you have a coexisting condition. BPD rarely occurs alone. For the first time, this groundbreaking guide offers a tailored approach to managing the symptoms of complex BPD. If you’ve been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), or suspect that you might have it, you should know that not everyone experiences the condition in the same way. BPD actually manifests on a spectrum, and while some people may encounter extreme symptoms and consequences on one end, others may be less affected on the other. In addition, if you’re struggling with other conditions—such as bipolar disorder, depression, psychotic symptoms, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or Complex PTSD (C-PTSD)—you may have complex BPD (C-BPD), and may benefit from expanding your knowledge and building your skills, so you can seek out a symptom management plan that is tailored to your unique needs. In Complex Borderline Personality Disorder, psychologist and BPD expert Daniel J. Fox offers a new understanding and awareness of the complexity of BPD, and helps you lay the groundwork needed to manage your symptoms more effectively. You’ll find checklists of specific symptoms to help you identify coexisting conditions related to BPD. And with this guide, you’ll feel more empowered to move forward in your life with all the knowledge, skills, and abilities you’ve learned. A clinician's guide is available as a downloadable resource for therapists wishing to use this book with their clients.
