Publisher's Summary

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 this audiobook 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.
Pittman and Karle offer simple, specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping in to both of these pathways in the brain. As you listen, you'll gain a greater understanding of 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.

A clear understanding really helps.

I found the clear and thorough explanation of the exact known cause and ways of helping myself very reassuring. I feel much more confident that I can use the retraining techniques explained in this book to finally rid myself from this sometimes all consuming worry, pessimism and fear. It actually feels better just having a real name for them. Really helpful audiobook. Thank you.

Great book for scientifically treating anxiety

It was very interesting to know about the two different mechanisms of brain for creating anxiety and how one can change them.

Any additional comments?

I found this book well structured, to the point, and helpful.

I loved that the author didn't try to treat anxiety with a cookie-cutter approach, one fits all. When it comes to anxiety, one definitely doesn't fit all.

Through short quizzes, to which you can easily give mental answers while listening to the audio book, the author helps you pinpoint what you are experiencing, names it, and gives you strategies specific to the type of anxiety you might have. I found that knowing the origin of my anxieties, putting a name to them, and knowing at least 2-3 strategies for each, is very helpful.

In fact, I'm about to purchase a book in print, in order to bookmark and reference it.

Excelent!

I liked this book a lot! Most anxiety books only focus on one type of treatment for anxiety, promoting it as the only way to cure it. This book has a much more ample and better explained and sustained ways to cope with anxiety.

Very 'sciencey' but good

This book was a lot more 'sciencey' than I anticipated but I stuck with it. Some good techniques for coping with anxiety are mentioned including mindfulness at the end.
