From the Back Cover:

Seven important steps to help you cope with "the New Normalcy," and live your life without debilitating fears.

September 11 forever changed the way we view the world -- affecting how we go about our day-to-day -- formerly routine -- activities. September 11 was the day phobias turned into reality; anxiety turned into panic; and the only sure thing was uncertainty. But, in the wake of September 11, as panic and horror slowly subside, many of us are still left with anxious days and sleepless nights. "When will the other shoe drop?" is on everyone's minds, if not their lips.

Internationally renowned psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Harriet Braiker has identified a new kind of stress bred of this uncertainty: The September 11 Syndrome. Symptoms include: persistent anxiety and worry, sleep disruption, lingering low-grade depression, avoidance of fear-provoking activities or places, increased irritability and a general feeling of loss of control and helplessness, all triggered by the events of that tragic day and its aftermath.

The September 11 Syndrome addresses these symptoms and offers seven practical ways for getting a grip and regaining a sense of control in these very uncertain times. Because despite the turbulent times, people still have to fly, get up and go to work, take their kids to school, go shopping, have fun, and keep their families together. This book shows you how to recognize the symptoms of the September 11 Syndrome and, in clear prescriptive language, to:

  • Transform negative thoughts and images into positive ones
  • Overcome your fears--from flying to driving over bridges
  • Gain control over constant worry
  • Take action against helplessness and depression
  • Enhance the comfort of your personal "safety" zones
  • Strengthen your connections to others
  • Discover your own personal courage every day

If you are feeling the lingering effects of stress, anxiety, and depression, you are not alone. In the wake of September 11, the recovery process may not be a short one; but it's not impossible either. Armed with this powerful guide, you can regain a sense of control over your life--and the freedom of mind to experience everyday joys once again.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 222 x 148 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Everyday life for ordinary citizens has become fraught with danger and the real threat of attack. Suddenly fear of flying, fear of crowded places, anxiety over heights, subways, public transportation, and even opening the mail cannot be dismissed as mere phobias. We are told to get back to a normal routine at the same time we are told to be on your highest alert for attack - it s no wonder we are fearful and anxiety-ridden. But at least for the near future, we must learn to manage our fears and anxieties or else become paralyzed by them and become unable to live our lives. Renowned psychologist Harriet Braiker presents 10 methods her patients have used successfully to reclaim their lives by managing stress in anxiety in ways that allow them to be vigilant to potential dangers and at the same time carry on their day-to-day business and personal affairs and plan for the future. Dr. Braiker presents readers the keys to psychological hardiness and resiliency - using proven techniques used by survivors of trauma and people who thrive on stress. Many people actually become energized and more effective in times of stress - for instance, Mayor Rudy Guiliani has performed at the top of his game during the WTC disaster, and even his staunchest critics have praised his actions. Braiker shows how to maintain the necessary mindset readers need in order to regain freedom of travel, commerce, and everyday joys. Her strategies include advice on how to focus on things you can control, instead of on things you can t. She tells readers that anxiety is not necessarily something they must avoid - that in fact, anxiety can facilitate performance if it can be kept at just the right level. This book will show how to keep that anxiety level in check. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780071400770
