''This excellent book offers ideas that are practical, effective, efficient, and encouraging. I strongly recommend it to everyone – clients and clinicians – whowant to better manage (and reduce) anxiety.'' –Michael F. Hoyt, Ph.D., author of Brief Psychotherapies: Principles and Practices and editor of Therapist Stories of Inspiration, Passion, and Renewal:What’s Love Got To Do With It?''Should you buy or buy into this book on Solution Focused Anxiety Management? Well, ''You can-and you don’t have to.'' This is a core message of this user-friendly, four-session anxiety management guidebook. This solution focused approach to anxiety takes the pressure off of the idea that clients have to eliminate rather than simply manage anxiety. Clients and therapists will learn to tap into their own courage, coping, and appropriate caution and then choose to move forward in their own unique ways. This is an excellent integration of a range of potential tools offered to clients in a very non-threatening four-session class format. It takes the pressure off of rigid compliance with so-called evidence-based formats, and reduces clients’ common wish to entirely eliminate their anxiety. Its ''leading from behind'' position of finding what works for clients and amplifying those strengths is balanced by how it introduces new options and frames that have often been found to work for others. As in Ellen Quick’s other popular work, Doing What Works In Brief Therapy, this book offers another very practical, down-to-earth, user-friendly and immediately adaptable model for effective integrative practice. I can easily imagine how this brief group format will fit into my own work in a community mental health center struggling to address how to integrate best practices into a flexible format for a broad range of clients. I will heartily recommend this book to others who, of course, ''can-but don’t have to'' try it out in their own work.'' –J. Scott Fraser, Ph.D., Professor, School of Professional Psychology, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio
