Although it's been practiced for more than a thousand years, mindfulness has been making waves recently in psychological circles. Therapists have discovered that the act of being present in the moment can be a powerful tool for overcoming certain psychological problems, especially anxiety. The first edition of Calming Your Anxious Mind introduced readers to the use of mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion as tools for bringing peace to a mind shaken by anxiety, fear, and worry. Now, Dr. Brantley offers readers this fully revised and expanded second edition of a book that has changed so many lives for the better. This major revision includes two completely new chapters. The first deals with acceptance practice during mindfulness meditation. In the second, Brantley helps readers feel safe while facing fear, anxiety, and panic by using mindfulness and acceptance principles by opening up to fearful feelings. Other chapters have been revised with the most current research data and with feedback the author has received on the first edition.
