Controlling Your Mind: A Workbook for Anxious, Depressive or Obsessive Mood; estimated publication date, March, 2018
Unwanted negative intrusive thoughts play an important role in the persistence and severity of anxiety and depression. They often take the form of obsessive thinking, worry, rumination or pathological guilt. This self-help book targets negative intrusive thoughts, introducing therapeutic strategies based on new findings on the nature of mental control. Chapters focus on how to identify problematic intrusive thoughts, correct fauly appraisals of intrusion significance, refrain from ineffective mental control strategies, adopt more effective mental self-control, and boost the effects of positive mental intrusions. The book is currently in preparation, with an estimated publication date of March, 2018 in the US by New Habinger and the UK by Little Brown.
