Description

Stop avoiding and start living! Do you cope with anxiety by avoiding people, places, and situations that make you feel anxious? Do you deal with depression by isolating yourself from the people and activities that used to bring you joy? Do you avoid talking or thinking about the events that caused your post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? If so, you’re not alone. Changing behavior in an attempt to avoid thinking or confronting things that are uncomfortable is a common symptom of anxiety, depression, PTSD, and related conditions. With this guide, you’ll develop skills based in transdiagnostic behavior therapy (TBT), an evidence-based protocol designed to help you identify and overcome the avoidance and isolation issues associated with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. You’ll also learn how to safely and gradually implement therapeutic techniques that will result in reduced symptoms and improved confidence. If you’re tired of hiding from difficult thoughts, emotions, and situations, this book will help you break the avoidance cycle at the heart of your disorder. It’s time to stop running from the life you want and start developing the effective coping skills you need to face life’s challenges with courage and confidence.

Advance Praise

“Daniel Gros has written an easily understandable guide to self-therapy where he has effectively identified, tried, and convicted avoidance as the key culprit in maintaining pathological behavior. But more importantly, he outlines a method of recognizing, operationalizing, and confronting the four types of avoidance as a means to achieve better mental health. The book incorporates worksheets and fillable tables so the reader can set about achieving real clinical gains immediately and independently.”
Ron Acierno, PhD, director of the UTHealth Trauma and Resilience Center in Houston, TX; and clinical psychologist and researcher treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other anxiety disorders across the lifespan 

“I commend Daniel Gros for translating his many years of research developing transdiagnostic behavior therapy (TBT)—a highly effective intervention for reducing avoidance and improving quality of life for individuals suffering from a range of mental health conditions—into this practical, well-written workbook. Overcoming Avoidance Workbook provides a straightforward, evidence-based approach that will help you to reduce your avoidance and get your life back on track!”
Randi McCabe, PhD, CPsych, clinical psychologist, professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral neurosciences at McMaster University, and author of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in Groups
