'Nothing to Fear' price reduced for the coming week.
Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2012 -- If you or someone you care about suffers from panic attacks, this week offers an opportunity to get help quickly. The publisher of the popular psychology e-book Nothing to Fear: A Self-Help Guide to Overcoming Panic Attacks for Life will reduce the publication’s price to $2.99 per download in honor of World Mental Health Day on Wednesday, October 10. The sale, which begins Monday, October 8, and continues though Friday, October 12, will happen only on the Nothing to Fear web site.
Written by psychotherapist and anxiety expert Michael Jones, Nothing to Fear walks readers through a step-by-step process to beating anxiety, based on scientifically-established methods. Jones has condensed approximately 15 sessions of cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques into one volume.
"As we focus on psychological issues for World Mental Health Day, I wanted to make this book affordable to virtually everyone who experiences panic attacks, one of the most common disorders on the planet," Jones said. He noted that the American Psychiatric Association estimates 10% of all adults will experience a panic attack this year. “When I worked in emergency rooms for over 10 years, I treated many people who believed they were having a heart attack or losing their minds when, in fact, they were merely experiencing a panic attack. Most of these folks had never been to a therapist or psychiatrist and needed straightforward information about how to overcome their anxiety. This book was written with these people in mind.”
In Nothing to Fear, Jones teaches that beating one’s fear of anxiety is the first step to living free of panic. “Essentially, there is nothing dangerous about panic attacks,” he said. “If you understand what is really happening, that you’re not having a heart attack or losing your mind, and that the anxiety will never rise beyond what you can handle, you can begin to manage these episodes much more efficiently. Most treatments for panic attacks, both therapeutically and in this book, focus on reducing fear of the symptoms.” He incorporates techniques from Western cognitive-behavioral therapy and Eastern meditation to help readers overcome these episodes of fear.
Since its release in December 2011, Nothing to Fear has garnered praise from critics and readers alike. A clinician version is also in the works for therapists and other mental health providers.
World Mental Health Day is sponsored by the World Federation for Mental Health, an organization with members in 100 countries over six continents started by the World Health Organization.
In addition to the official web site, Nothing to Fear is available from Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble at its regular price.
