    9 FREE CBT ebooks for Health Anxiety

    Hi Everyone

    Please check out the following website for excellent FREE ebooks on health Anxiety - I have copied and pasted the info and links from the actual website

    http://www.cci.health.wa.gov.au/reso...cfm?Info_ID=53

    You all know by now that reassurance doesn't work for long and that the best thing to do is fully understand Health Anxiety.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE at least download these modules and read them - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain :-)

    When you click on a link for the books I think it downloads the PDF straight to your computer - so you need to check your downloads folder

    Helping Health Anxiety
    Overcoming Health Anxiety: This InfoPax is designed to provide you with some information about health anxiety, including how it develops, how it is maintained, and how to decrease your health worries and concerns. It is organised into modules that are designed to be worked through in sequence. We recommend that you complete one module before going on to the next. Each module includes information, worksheets, and suggested exercises or activities. Modules:

    • Module 1: Understanding Health Anxiety
      This module provides an overview of what health anxiety is, how it can be a problem, and what kind of impact it can have on a person's life. PDF document: 272kb. Updated 15 September 2011.








    • Module 5: Re-evaluating Unhelpful Health Related Thinking
      This module explores how your thoughts can influence your feelings, physiological state, and behaviours. This module then discusses ways to evaluate and overcome unhelpful health related thinking. PDF document: 251kb. Updated 15 September 2011.


    • Module 6: Reducing Checking and Reassurance Seeking
      This module explores the different ways people check and seek reassurance regarding their health concerns, discusses the difference between helpful and unhelpful checking and reassurance seeking, and introduces strategies to reduce or eliminate these behaviours. PDF document: 309kb. Updated 15 September 2011.


    • Module 7: Challenging Avoidance and Safety Behaviours
      This module explores how avoidance and safety behaviours can keep health anxiety going, and introduces a strategy to gradually reduce and overcome these behaviours. PDF document: 259kb. Updated 15 September 2011.


    • Module 8: Adjusting Health Rules and Assumptions
      In this module we will focus on challenging the unhelpful rules and assumptions that can keep you caught in the vicious cycle of health anxiety. PDF document: 195kb. Updated 15 September 2011.

    • Module 9: Healthy Living and Self Management Planning
      This final module brings all the concepts of this information package together, presents a new model for healthy living, and includes a self-management plan to help you to stay on track in the future. PDF document: 234kb. Updated 15 September 2011.

    Is this CBT? I went to a therapist and she gave me this as a booklet, I skimmed through it and wondered where the 'tools' were - I will read it carefully this time - thanks for posting.

    Re: 9 FREE CBT ebooks for Health Anxiety

    Nice to see it as a sticky. We've been posting these workbooks on people's threads for ages.

    I get mine off this one:

    https://psychologytools.com/download...orksheets.html

    Towards the bottom you will see a CCI section that includes the HA modules but also has many others. Considering HA is a sufferers label and not a diagnostic one it means it spraddles into GAD & OCD as well as covering the Somatoform Disorders, it's worth looking at some of the others too (some members on here have HA themes as well as other OCD ones) such as perfectionism, anything on intrusive thoughts, etc.

    There are also workbooks on there for other mental health disorders as well as individual worksheets.
