From the Publisher:
A motivational genius and a dynamic speaker, Lucinda Bassett has appeared in numerous "infomercials", including "Attacking Anxiety" and "Life Without Limits". Here she offers proven techniques to overcome anxiety disorder and to regain control over one's life.
If you are prone to problems with anxiety and worry, you are probably highly intelligent, very creative, detail oriented, and analytical. These traits can make you extremely successful...or they can make you sick. People with anxiety use these attributes to scare themselves by over-thinking and over-reacting. They use their creativity to envision the worst-possible scenarios, most of which never happen.
Put an End to Your Worry and Fear and Live Life to the Fullest!
From Panic to Power is Lucinda Bassett's inspiring account of the proven techniques she used to overcome anxiety disorder and regain control of her life.
A bestseller with more than 72,000 hardcover copies sold, From Panic to Power offers techniques and skills to the ever–growing number of people who are adversely affected by today's overwhelmingly stressful environment. Lucinda Bassett's effective program, which teaches people how to think differently and respond in a less anxious way, is enabling hundreds of thousands all over the world to transform their draining doubts, fears, and anxieties into positive energy and newfound freedom. Her methods allow sufferers to gain a new understanding of themselves and their challenges when dealing with anxiety and teach effective skills to help transform negative self–talk and destructive worry habits into recently discovered compassion and confidence.
Many anxiety and panic attack sufferers mistakenly believe that by steering clear of situations or behaviors that bring on attacks, they are successfully dealing with the problem. Unfortunately, this avoidance behavior can perpetuate the cycle and actually make it worse. Lucinda Bassett, best known for her TV infomercials on fighting anxiety, breaks through the profound social stigma associated with anxiety with a refreshing but gut-wrenching account of her own agoraphobia. She then supplies her own personal program designed to overcome anxiety. In workbook form, she explains various exercises (similar to cognitive behavior therapies) that she says have been proven to help overcome debilitating fear without the aid of medication.
