Dealing with Highly Anxious People: Smart Tactics to Cope with These People in Your Life
Normal anxiety is a coping mechanism and can be helpful at times, but when it becomes excessive it is troubling to the person who experiences it and to those who interact with them on a regular basis. In this book, author Nina W. Brown explains that the anxiety at issue here is not pathological but nevertheless can be dysfunctional to that person and others. A professor and eminent scholar, Brown focuses on four categories of everyday anxious people and explains some effective approaches we can take when interacting with these worriers, complainers, micromanagers, and naggers. She also helps readers to understand how their own personalities can contribute to the reactions of a highly anxious person, how readers can build their psychological boundaries to keep themselves from being pulled into the anxious state, and how they can model more effective ways to behave and relate.
