A textbook for professionals on the treatment of psychophysiologic disorders
Written by Allan Abbass, MD and Howard Schubiner, MD
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 donâ€™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.
Dr. Schubiner's book, Unlearn Your Pain, has been substantially revised for 2016 (third edition) and is now available.
You can purchase a copy by clicking here. It includes all of the scientific information supporting the diagnosis of Mind Body Syndrome, a chapter to help people determine if they have Mind Body Syndrome, and the full program for healing.
There are now four eBooks available on the kindle and iBooks format. You can purchase the first five chapters of Unlearn Your Pain or Unlearn Your Anxiety and Depression. Or you can now purchase either book in its entirety. The meditations that accompany these books are now available online with a password obtained when you purchase either book. Review the scientific information that explains how nerve pathways can produce chronic pain, anxiety and depression and explore your life to determine if this approach might apply to you.
