Anxiety : [electronic resource] : A short history. by Horwitz, Allan V.;
More people today report feeling anxious than ever before—even while living in relatively safe and prosperous modern societies. Almost one in five people experiences an anxiety disorder each year, and more than a quarter of the population admits to an anxiety condition at some point in their lives. Here Allan V. Horwitz, a sociologist of mental illness and mental health, narrates how this condition has been experienced, understood, and treated through the ages—from Hippocrates, through Freud, to today.Anxiety is rooted in an ancient part of the brain, and our ability to be anxious is inherited from species far more ancient than humans. Anxiety is often adaptive: it enables us to respond to threats. But when normal fear yields to what psychiatry categorizes as anxiety disorders, it becomes maladaptive. As Horwitz explores the history and multiple identities of anxiety—melancholia, nerves, neuroses, phobias, and so on—it becomes clear that every age has...Electronic reproduction.

Unwinding anxiety : [electronic resource] : New science shows how to break the cycles of worry and fear to heal your mind. by Brewer, Judson.; Brewer, Judson.;
Narrator: Judson Brewer.We are living through one of the most anxious periods any of us can remember. Whether facing issues as public as a pandemic or as personal as having kids at home and fighting the urge to reach for the wine bottle every night, we are feeling overwhelmed and out of control. But in this timely book, Judson Brewer explains how to uproot anxiety at its source using brain-based techniques and small hacks accessible to anyone.  We think of anxiety as everything from mild unease to full-blown panic. But it's also what drives the addictive behaviors and bad habits we use to cope (e.g. stress eating, procrastination, doom scrolling and social media). Plus, anxiety lives in a part of the brain that resists rational thought. So we get stuck in anxiety habit loops that we can't think our way out of or use willpower to overcome. Dr. Brewer teaches us map our brains to discover our triggers, defuse them with the simple but powerful practice of curiosity, and to train our brains using mindfulness and other practices that his lab has proven can work. Distilling more than 20 years of research and hands-on work with thousands of patients, including Olympic athletes and coaches, and leaders in government and business, Dr. Brewer has created a clear, solution-oriented program that anyone can use to feel better - no matter how anxious they feel.Requires the Libby app or a modern web browser.

The anxiety audit : [electronic resource] : 7 sneaky ways anxiety takes hold and how to escape them. by Lyons, Lynn LICSW.; Lyons, Lynn.;
Narrator: Lynn Lyons.Ask people to describe anxiety and they'll start with the familiar symptoms: racing heart, sweaty palms, difficulty breathing. Anxiety, they might add, is "freaking out," a panic attack, or a frightening loss of control. But anxiety isn't always what we think it is, especially now. Anxiety has become the new normal, constant and simmering, disguising itself in patterns and responses we don't even recognize as anxiety. These patterns include: - Ruminating and worrying (and mistaking it for problem solving) - Going global, or seeing the world through an overwhelming, all-or-nothing lens - Isolating and disconnecting, all too common in our "new normal" - Creating chaos and "busy-ness" The Anxiety Audit is a guide for us all: with no overly scientific or diagnostic language-just real talk and time-tested tactics from a respected therapist-it is a relatable and practical guide to untangling yourself from the grips of worry and fear. Using stories, real-world examples, and helpful dialogues to retrain the way you think and react, trusted anxiety expert Lynn Lyons helps you recognize the sneaky ways these anxious patterns and cycles of worry take hold in your life.Requires the Libby app or a modern web browser.
