I know this will have limited appeal here, but I thought I would add it as it is a good price reduction, and someone might be interested.

*This is the 3 book set, Amazon have the wrong title on the product. If you google the isbn, you can see that it is in fact the set. I received it yesterday from Amazon and can confirm this.*

Since it was first published in 1999, Gillian Butler's Overcoming Social Anxiety and Shyness has helped thousands of sufferers with this common problem and gained the respect of therapists and patients alike for its practical and friendly approach and is recommended on the NHS self-help scheme 'Books on Prescription'. This classic title has been adapted and is now available as a new large format edition available in three parts. Designed to run alongside the books, it places an emphasis on the more practical and interactive elements, with multiple worksheets and exercises to be completed on the page. Ideal for anyone to work through alone or with guided assistance, the new Overcoming Social Anxiety and Shyness Self-Help Course; is a complete, step-by-step treatment providing the reader with the necessary skills to overcome social anxiety and shyness.

This should have very wide appeal. I would have thought social anxiety is pretty common. 'else no one would feel the need to drink when they go out socially.

No probs, :) CBT counsellors give similar worksheets to people with Social Anxiety so it should help him. I found writing things down to be a great help to me.

This is a genuinely useful book for anyone who wants to use a CBT approach to learn self management techniques. I have recomended it to patients of mine and it forms part of the national (I think) bibliotherapy scheme in Wales i.e. professionally reviewed and recomended self help literature. This and a whole range of other similar materials covering a range of mental health issues are available to use on loan from your local library (you don't need to be a member IIRC) free via your GP or other health professionals. There are plenty of quick fix books out there that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole but this is not one of them. That said CBT is not the only approach but it is one of the first ports of call as recomended by NICE for anxiety and depression

Many thanks for that, just what I needed.
PS. Those who post unkind comments clearly don't suffer from this condition should go & bully somebody else. This is a course for painfully shy people or those who are unable to assert themselves or unable to say "no". Also for those (like me) who were unaware they had the condition, if you are a thirty or forty something and still a virgin, this could be at the root of your problem, the sooner you stop denying and come to terms with it, the better, so read this course.
Also good for victims of bullying or of dominant people at work or at home.

I ordered this but then I was too shy to open the door to the postie :oops:

I personally found some of the comments on here very amusing !
I have myself been very ill with all sorts of these issues but I never lost my sense of humour.
Lets not get too grumpy with the funny comments.... they made me giggle
Neither were they unkind or bullying comments either... just merry quips :)

Oh God my sides are splitting. Suicide and anxiety are really laughing matters aren't they guys?

The predictable first posts here just shows how hotukdeals now seems have a resident phalanx of insensitive trolls just ready to spring their thoughts on us like it's a competition on who can be the most boorish. Alas, to a man none of them possess any wit, humanity or brain-cells.

I see you posted a "review" on Amazon even though you've never used the techniques described in the book...

Btw, it wasn't me who unfavoured your review there. :P

Thanks anyway.

As part of my Personal Development Plan (stupid work terminology) my boss wanted to set me an objective for this year to be more out-going, to interact with the team more, to come on their evenings out and be more sociable. However, I pointed out that I don't do this stuff for the people I love, I don't even go to family events or parties. I hate them with a passion and I'd rather stay at home and do the ironing, clean my car or read a book.

So maybe this book is aimed at people like me? Maybe I would find it useful but as I am about to start my 43rd trip around the sun I am quite happy being an (as my dear wife of 19 puts it) anti-social [bleep] and I am not gonna change now. If I had found these books when I was younger they may have helped me but it's too late for me now.

:oops: The reason I posted that review on Amazon is I was letting people know that it was the full course of the books, as it states that its only book one on the title on the Amazon page and people may not have realised that it was the 3 books, removed it anyway. :-( And I have used CBT techniques and read Gillian Butler's book that this course is based on.

There's a huge difference between social anxiety and being anti-social. You're happy as you are and you told your boss where to shove his stupid opinions, sounds like you don't need this book at all.

Yeah but the 'jokes' aren't funny, they're just insensitive.

If you had the problems these books are addressing you would feel upset, angry and frustrated that people were treating these life-destroying illnesses as just another opportunity for a cheap laugh and all the jokes are digs at the sufferers' expense. None are witty or thoughtful enough to bring the sufferers' on-board and let them laugh too.

Leave the hilarity to deals about Pepperami or something. I'm sorry if I seem like someone who can't take a joke but I've suffered from crippling anxiety in the past & I didn't find anything here to laugh about. The jokes seemed more like the taunts and sn*ggered remarks that you experience at school.

Wrong. Read Mandy Moles' comment above. A sufferer who doesn't get her knickers in a twist and took it all in the good faith with which it was intended.

Humour based on people's ills is a fact of life, an inescapable part of the society we live in, that you can't handle it isn't society's problem, as a grown-up it's yours. Give the hand-wringing a rest and go read a few more of these books.

I'm no great advocate of CBT* (in the wrong hands I believe it can do more harm than good) but if you do decide to go down that route you don't have to shell out loads of lolly on books! Some people find online courses more responsive than static books. For example:

e-couch is an online program which claims "to be effective for preventing and coping with depression, generalised anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder (and like MoodGYM it's free!). " MoodGYM has been going for quite a few years to the best of my knowledge.

It claims: "e-couch provides evidence-based information about emotional problems (including depression and anxiety disorders) and teaches strategies that may help you to prevent problems and understand yourself better."

* Ever since NICE approved of CBT a lot of other, often more appropriate (but initially, perhaps more costly) therapies have been denied to patients in need. CBT may be effective for some, but I believe there are too many inexperienced "CBT practitioners" out there who have done a crash course in CBT then go out and treat it like a new religion and a universal panacea!

In fact, I think I'll post the above in the Freebies section! :idea:

Thanks for the link. When I suffered from generalised anxiety disorder (and still do to a degree) I saw an NHS therapist for about a year who took a purely Freudian approach which frankly I didn't find a great help (he kept telling me to 'explore my fantasies'). Although in their infancy at the time I did find some CBT courses which were of more practical use and I am sure they will help others too.

Seriously mate, your being a prick.

If people find your jokes offensive, just stop making them. Why upset people and then argue that it's their problem for getting offended? Just apologise and move on.

For what it's worth, I have suffered from anxiety all my life, and It can make things really, really hard. I'm not offended by your (and others) comments, although they are pretty obvious and not terribly clever. However, I can understand how other people might be and can respect that. Maybe you should too.

Classic.......... one minute your're going on about thinking of others and your anxiety issues and you then start your post off by calling the bloke a prick......or are you nervously typing while hiding in your airing cupboard?
