In this book, Ken Goodman makes understanding and overcoming anxiety simple and straightforward. His examples vividly illustrate concepts, making them easy to apply, and the exercises will leave readers with skills to effectively face anxiety for years to come! As a psychologist who specializes in treating anxiety, I find myself utilizing many of the concepts Ken uses in this book over and over again.
Just started reading it. So far very informative.
I purchased three of these books for myself and two friends. We were all a little anxious from COVID and we thought it would have a calming effect. I’m loving working through the book and having such important information on staying focused and centered. The coloring is a great opportunity to focus on something pleasant and the reading content is valuable and specific on how to cope with anxiety. You don’t have to have an anxiety disorder to appreciate this. You just have to have an appreciation that we can all use wisdom and focus to get us though difficult times and seasons of our lives.
In this delightful and fun self-help coloring book, Ken Goodman teaches readers how to reframe their relationship to anxiety by externalizing it. He advises his readers (and clients) to lean into discomfort and uncertainty, and teaches them to play a game that helps people think outside the box when it comes to healing anxiety. Ken's work is based on three psychological modalities: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Ken is a knowledgeable and compassionate guide, and his message is a hopeful one: it is absolutely possible to live life free from anxiety, phobias, and fears.
Ken does a wonderful job of demystifying anxiety, offering insight and strategies to better manage a daily part of life. He helps readers (and colorers) to build their own courage to work on taking back control of their lives. Anxiety can be overwhelming, especially without guidance on overcoming it. Ken, as always, does a beautiful job of compassionately walking readers through many of the tools needed to build a different relationship with anxious thoughts and feelings.
