Unlearn Your Anxiety & Depression

Dr. Schubiner's second book, Unlearn Your Anxiety and Depression, is availalble

Despite skyrocketing numbers of people affected by these conditions, current medical treatments are deeply flawed and often simply don’t work. This book offers a different way to understand and overcome your anxiety or depression.

Cutting-edge research shows that stressful or traumatic life events can create patterns in the brain that may be advantageous at first but, in the long run, can pose barriers to achieving emotional health. Dr. Schubiner has developed a unique program to help you understand whether this model applies to you and guide you to reverse these patterns that have led to anxiety or depression.

The program in this book will guide readers through a step-by-step approach to recovery. The techniques that are used include a new understanding of their symptoms, powerful behavioral interventions, emotional processing, therapeutic writing, meditation, and everything else needed to unlearn anxiety and depression.

Notes on purchasing both of Dr. Schubiner's books


Each of my two books, Unlearn Your Pain and Unlearn Your Anxiety & Depression, are divided into two parts: 1) an explanation of how these disorders develop and why modern medical practice is often unable to solve them, which is contained in the first five chapters of each book; and 2) a complete self-guided workbook which comprises the last seven chapters. The first five chapters of each book are quite different, but the last seven chapters of both books are identical. Therefore, you will not need both books in order to obtain the self-guided recovery program.
