Summary "Proven strategies to disengage from intrusive thoughts and live your best life. Intrusive thoughts are disturbing or frightening thoughts or images that appear out of nowhere and make it hard to go about your day, especially in tandem with other anxiety disorders. Break Free from Intrusive Thoughts is your sensitive, modern guide to developing a more accepting relationship with them, to rob them of their power , and stop them from holding you back. The truth about intrusive thoughts : Gain a solid understanding of what intrusive thoughts are, what causes them, and what they really mean (and don't mean), instead of what they claim to be. Your own path to recovery : Explore a range of therapy techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP) , acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness. Hands-on healing : Get unstuck from unhelpful thinking patterns through exercises like identifying your values, writing out your fears, and labeling your emotions, so you can get back to your life." -- Back cover.
