Description of this Electronic Book

When I feel like I'm losing it, how do I stop the rollercoaster? We all want to feel in control - to feel good, reduce pain, and take pleasure in our lives. All too often, though, we end up instead with one of the most destructive afflictions of modern life: stress - or, more accurately, distress. Not all stress is harmful, in fact some is positively beneficial and essential to our survival and happiness - the good stress. Effective control and stress management is about handling life in ways that help us minimise distress while capitalising on the benefits of good stress. In the rational step-by-step manner that characterises his previous books, Wayne Froggatt applies the highly effective method of cognitive-behaviour therapy to explain: ? why human beings experience loss of control ? what stress really is ? the 12 principles of personal control and stress management ? a set of practical skills to take control and make stress work for you.By following his methods, you will be able to diagnose your own stress and develop powerful strategies for making the most of whatever life throws at you. Wayne Froggatt is the author of two other internationally successful books, FearLess and Choose to be Happy, and has written previously on this topic in GoodStress: the life that can be yours. the Executive Director of the New Zealand Centre for Cognitive Behaviour therapy and an Associate Fellow of New York's Albert Ellis Institute, he specialises in health counselling and psychotherapy and lectures in cognitive-behaviour therapy at the Eastern Institute of technology.
