Many of us struggle with anxiety, which takes various forms, including phobias, panic attacks and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). Relief can be found, however, through learning to manage symptoms and, ultimately, through placing our reliance on God.
Issues covered include:
- Who is at risk (a consideration of different personality types)
- How anxiety affects us
- How we can measure levels of anxiety
- Skills and strategies to overcome anxiety
With real-life case studies, biblical examples and personal insights, this book offers help to all those suffering from anxiety – and gives practical guidelines for those wanting to help others.
The Waverley Abbey Insight Series is based on one-day seminars held by Waverley Abbey Trust at Waverley Abbey House to give insight into some key issues that many people struggle with today.
