Description

Anxiety shows up in a lot of different ways and can permeate every aspect of your life. The good news is that although it can feel confusing and overwhelming – as if things will never get better – it is possible to retrain your brain and put yourself back in the driver’s seat.

In Taming Your Amygdala, clinical psychologist Dr. Catherine Pittman offers scientific insight, clear explanations, and simple brain-based strategies to help you overcome excessive worry, anxiety, and fear. Based on the principles of neuroscience and cognitive behavioral therapy, the tools in this workbook will teach you the “language of the amygdala” so you can:

  • Understand how and why your brain gets “hijacked” by anxiety and fear
  • Identify and cope with anxiety triggers and stuck points
  • Develop new, adaptive coping skills to prevent and reduce anxious thoughts and feelings
  • Live your life to the fullest, breaking free of the limits of chronic anxiety, paralyzing worry, or debilitating panic
