Reneau Z. Peurifoy, M.A.
Reneau Peurifoy, has worked in private practice for twenty years as a marriage and family therapist specializing in anxiety disorders. His first book, Anxiety, Phobias and Panic, has sold over 200,000 copies and has become a standard in the field.
Overcoming Anxiety follows the lives of three people as they learn the skills needed to pull out of the abyss of anxiety disorders. Each chapter has a set of recommended activities that apply the information it contains to the reader’s life. The focus is learning to hear and address the often hidden messages behind anxiety so the reader can be truly free from debilitating anxiety.
People experiencing panic attacks and debilitating anxiety. Their family and friends would also read it. The feedback I've been getting indicates that designs with women don't appeal to men and deigns with men don't appeal to women. So designs that are gender neutral seem to be fairing the best.
