"A practical guide to picking yourself up, restoring your health and well-being, and getting the motivation and confidence to move forward with your life.--Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, PhD, author of the best-selling Women Who Think Too Much
Losing your job may be the most difficult thing you'll experience. Your mental health and physical well-being can suffer, leaving you feeling anxious, helpless, and alone. Dr. Robert L. Leahy has worked with many unemployed people over the years, and his successful techniques draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as practices, such as mindfulness, to help you boost your self-esteem and confidence, decrease anxiety and feelings of helplessness, and develop resilience and strength. By keeping your head and learning how to deal with this time well, you can also learn how to live your life more effectively once you get a job.
Unemployment is a time for new priorities and new meanings. This book will help you discover inner strengths and give you the skills to cope with life, whatever it may throw at you.
Robert L. Leahy is the director of the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy. He has received the Aaron T. Beck Award for outstanding contributions in cognitive therapy, and is the author and editor of over twenty-one books, including The Worry Cure.
