              The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: The extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Hoare, Judith

              Dr Weekes is the invisible giant on whose shoulders many psychiatrists and psychologists now stand. Her extraordinary story has never been told because she was completely ignored by professionals in the field, who had had no answers to the anxiety state and no understanding of th...e scholarship that lay behind her work. Yet her books, which sold for a handful of dollars, worked. The mail from grateful readers was unceasing and unmanageable, and the media competed for interviews with her. Dr Weekes's approach to treating anxiety proved state-of-the-art, and her books still change lives. Her work benefitted tens of millions of people, according to one of the foremost experts in anxiety, Dr David Barlow. How was it that she came to have such a unique understanding of the anxiety state, which was an epidemic hiding in plain sight? Cracking the anxiety code was a long, isolated, individual mission. It started when a terrified young woman, about to earn her first doctorate, was standing on a London wharf in 1929 feeling she simply couldn't go on. It ended with her changing the trajectory of global treatment.

              The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: the extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes (EPUB ebook)

              By Hoare, Judith

              The true story of the little-known mental-health pioneer who revolutionised how we see the defining problem of our era: anxiety. Panic, depression, sorrow, guilt, disgrace, obsession, sleeplessness, low confidence, loneliness, agoraphobia ... Dr Claire Weekes knew how to treat t...hem, but was dismissed as underqualified and overly populist by the psychiatric establishment. In a radical move, she had gone directly to the people. Her international bestseller Self Help for Your Nerves, first published in 1962 and still in print, helped tens of millions of people to overcome all of these, and continues to do so. Weekes pioneered an anxiety treatment that is now at the cutting edge of modern psychotherapies. Her early explanation of fear, and its effect on the nervous system, is state of the art. Psychologists use her method, neuroscientists study the interaction between different fear circuits in the brain, and many psychiatrists are revisiting the mind-body connection that was the hallmark of her unique work. Face, accept, float, let time pass: hers was the invisible hand that rewrote the therapeutic manual. This understanding of the biology of fear could not be more contemporary - 'acceptance' is the treatment du jour, and all mental-health professionals explain the phenomenon of fear in the same way she did so many years ago. However, most of them are unaware of the debt they have to a woman whose work has found such a huge public audience. This book is the first to tell that story, and to tell Weekes' own remarkable tale, of how a mistaken diagnosis of tuberculosis led to heart palpitations, beginning her fascinating journey to a practical treatment for anxiety that put power back in the hands of the individual.

              The true story of a little-known mental health pioneer who revolutionised how we see the defining problem of our era: anxiety. Panic, depression, sorrow, guilt, disgrace, obsessions, sleeplessness, low confidence, loneliness, agoraphobia ... The international bestseller Self-Help... For Your Nerves, first published in 1962 and still in print, has helped tens of millions of readers to overcome all of these, and continues to do so. But when it was first released, its diminutive author, Dr Claire Weekes, wasn't taken seriously. Seen as underqualified and overly populist by the medical establishment, she was dismissed even as thousands of letters from readers poured in, thanking her for helping to improve - and in some cases to save - their lives. Notable for her insight into the anxiety state and the effectiveness of her techniques for addressing it, Dr Weekes' work provided an alternative to the brutal, invasive, and expensive treatments that were popular at the time. For a handful of dollars, Weekes offered treatment unavailable anywhere else. Few understood she was a serious scholar whose understanding also came from first-hand experience: in order to do her work, she had had to overcome a crippling anxiety disorder herself. At a crucial moment in history, Dr Weekes' work showed people around the world that they were not alone in their suffering, and addressed an epidemic hiding in plain sight - one that remains an urgent problem in our society today. This book is the first to tell her story.
