Helping Your Child with Selective Mutism: Practical Steps to Overcome a Fear of Speaking, Angela E. McHolm and Charles E. Cunningham and Melanie K. Vanier
1 Helping Your Child with Selective Mutism: Practical Steps to Overcome a Fear of Speaking
Angela E. McHolm and Charles E. Cunningham and Melanie K. Vanier USA New Harbinger Publications 2005 157224416X / 9781572244160 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 22.8 x 15.2 x 1.0 cm 
Often described as "social phobia's cousin" and misdiagnosed as autism, selective mutism is a debilitating fear of speaking in some situations experienced by some children. The disorder usually presents in children before the age of five, but it may not be recognized until the child starts school. When requested to speak, children with selective mutism often look down, blush, or otherwise express anxiety that disrupts their engagement with people and activities. Selective mutism is related to social anxiety and social phobia, and more than 90 percent of children with selective mutism also manifest symptoms of one of these problems. This book is the first available for parents of children with selective mutism. It offers a broad overview of the condition and reviews the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. The book details a plan you can use to coordinate professional treatment of your child's disorder. It also explains the steps you can take on your own to encourage your child to speak comfortably in school and in his or her peer group. All of the book's strategies employ a gradual, "stepladder" approach. The techniques gently encourage children to speak more, while at the same time helping them feel safe and supported. Angela E. McHolm, Ph.D., is director of the Selective Mutism Service at McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, ON. The Selective Mutism Service offers outpatient psychiatric consultation to families and professionals such as school personnel, speech and language pathologists, and mental health clinicians who support children with selective mutism. She is assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton, ON.

I Love Me: A Guide to being Your Own Best Friend, Bev Aisbett
2 I Love Me: A Guide to being Your Own Best Friend
Bev Aisbett Australia Harper Collins 2013 0732289017 / 9780732289010 Soft cover New Book 
From the bestselling author of LIVING WITH IT comes a breakthrough work that is the culmination of years of searching for the 'bottom line' of the malaise which affects not only those who suffer with anxiety and depression but also human beings in general in ever-increasing numbers. This feeling manifests as anything from dissatisfaction to rage, bullying to brutality, self pity to cynicism. It contaminates happiness, sabotages potential and saps joy. The malaise is not discriminating: it equally infects world leaders and ordinary citizens. What is this sickness? It is a lack of joy. It means existing instead of living, finding oneself empty and afraid, angry, blaming or bored senseless. It is marrying the wrong spouse, staying in the job you hate, eating the wrong foods, becoming addicted, being lonely, falling ill, feeling lost. But take heart, there is a cure, which is free, powerful and accessible to all - LOVE YOURSELF.

Panic attacks--approximately 5% of the population will experience them at some time or another. The dread of having an attack--they seemingly come out of nowhere--transforms the ordinary world of everyday life into a nightmare of anxiety and suffering.

Bev Aisbett explains how panic disorders develop and how to recognise the symptoms, and covers topics such as changing negative thought patterns, seeking professional help and, ultimately, the skills for recovery. Now fully revised and updated, LIVING WIT IT provides much-needed reassurance and support, showing the way out of the maze of panic with humour and the insight of first-hand experience. About the Author In 1991 Bev Aisbett launched a full-time freelance career in cartooning and illustration. Around this time, Bev experienced an ordeal commonly known as anxiety disorder. Out of this experience she developed the character 'IT' which led to the successful publication of Living With IT, Living IT Up and Letting IT Go. Bev has also published Get Real, dealing with body image and eating disorders and in 2000 the successful Taming the Black Dog: A Guide to Depression.

Rewire Your Anxious Brain: How to Use the Neuroscience of Fear to End Anxiety, Panic and Worry, Catherine M. Pittman and Elizabeth M. Karle
5 Rewire Your Anxious Brain: How to Use the Neuroscience of Fear to End Anxiety, Panic and Worry
Catherine M. Pittman and Elizabeth M. Karle USA New Harbinger 2015 1626251134 / 9781626251137 Soft cover New Book 22.8 x 15.4 x 1.3 cm 
Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.In the book, you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison, the cortex is the center of "worry."That is obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen. In the book, Pittman and Karle make it simple by offering specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping into both of these pathways in the brain.As you read, you'll gain a greater understanding how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result, you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it. The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally "rewire" the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.
