About this product
- DescriptionAre we living in a uniquely paraid age? Catalysed by the threat of terrorism, fears about others have reached a new intensity. The roll call of apparent dangers seems to increase by the day: muggers, child abductors, drug dealers, hoodied teenagers. Crime has apparently reached such high levels that CCTV cameras are required in every town centre, and parents are so fearful that many children never go out alone. Until recently, one suspected just how common paraia was. But new research suggests that around a quarter of us have regular paraid thoughts, and probably lots more have them occasionally. Paraia is so prevalent that there 's a very good chance that all of us will, at some point in our lives, be among the 25%. Yet, although paraia is as common as depression or anxiety, most of us kw almost thing about it. What is paraia? What causes it? Are some people more prone to paraia than others? Are we more paraid w than we used to be? How should we deal with our paraid thoughts? And how can we reduce the amount of paraia in our society? Co-written by one of the world 's leading psychologists of paraia, and drawing on the latest scientific research, this lively and accessible book answers these key questions, highlighting for the first time the central role of paraia in our world today.
