5. The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook – by Edmund J. Bourne
This book excels not only in explaining the cause and nature of anxiety disorders and phobias but also in describing treatments. Director of the Anxiety Treatment Center in Santa Rosa (California), Bourne emphasizes the cognitive-behavioral model of treatment but includes information on biopsychiatry, intense psychotherapy, and spirituality as additional treatment modalities. This is truly a “workbook,” with exercises designed to facilitate recovery, either through private use or in conjunction with professional therapy.

3. Self-Change Hypnosis – by Richard MacKenzie
