9781903269091: Claustrophobia

Therapist and consultant Andrea Perry speaks honestly about her own experience of claustrophobia in what is believed to be the first ever book on the subject. She draws on the views of other people who have experienced similar anxiety, and overcome it. She explores how and why the phobia develops and then provides a huge range of self help strategies to help overcome it. In addition, for those who want to turn to therapy, she provides a comprehensive and insightful assessment of the therapeutic treatments available today.

Review:

With this book Andrea Perry has made a superb contribution to our understanding of this complex and ill-understood condition, which we now know affects many millions of people. --Ben Timmis, FRCR, Medical Director, London Upright MRI Centre

This book ticks all the right boxes for me. Written with the authenticity borne of personal suffering and the objectivity of clinical experience, the book cleverly melds the two into a compassionate, satisfying self-help study for anyone with an interest in claustrophobia. The book excels particularly in avoiding the 'trap' of assuming a one-size-fits-all approach to recovery from mental distress. An excellent starting place for understanding claustrophobia in the context of our modern society. --Nicky Lidbetter, Chief Executive, National Phobics Society

Andrea has written an accessible, insightful and above all simple and practical guide to the lived experience of claustrophobia. Journalists are not in the main enthusiastic readers of self-help or psychological manuals. But considering how much of the news involves emotional distress, this is one book they would do well to examine. --Mark Brayne, Former BBC journalist and Director, Europe DART Centre for Journalism and Trauma

Book Description Worth Publishing, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Experiencing claustrophobia can be terrifying. Each person who is claustrophobic copes with their fears differently - some by struggling to manage their anxieties and panic, and others by limiting their lives to avoid enclosed spaces, like tube-trains, lifts, tunnels, car-washes, MRI scans, loo s on planes, or even wearing a crash-helmet. Some people find their fears embarrassing or shameful, and worry what others may think of them, when they have to just get out of small or crowded places. In this sensitive and insightful book, therapist and consultant Andrea Perry speaks honestly of her own experiences, as well as drawing on the views of others whose claustrophobic feelings have affected their lives. She paints a powerful picture of the challenge of dealing with claustrophobia on a daily basis, looking at how people manage, whether it is possible to overcome the anxiety, and what others can do to help friends, family and colleagues to cope. She even manages to find the humour in what can be a truly frightening experience, and controversially, presents claustrophobia not simply as an irrational response, but as a deeply human rejection of being electronically controlled in the confined spaces of an increasingly technological world. She also claims that many businesses are losing customers through not understanding people s fear of confined spaces and provides concrete suggestions as to what designers, architects and a wide range of public and private service providers can do to help.
