Books On Autism/Asperger's Syndrome

Exposure Anxiety: The Invisible Cage By Donna Williams(Click on Picture to purchase from Amazon.com)

Exposure anxiety (Author: Donna Williams) is increasingly understood as a crippling condition affecting a high proportion of people on the autism spectrum. To many it is an invisible cage, leaving the person suffering from it aware, but buried alive in their own involuntary responses and isolation. Exposure Anxiety: The Invisible Cage describes the condition and its underlying physiological causes, and presents a range of approaches and strategies that can be used to combat it. Based on personal experience, the book shows how people with autism can be shown how to emerge from the stranglehold of exposure anxiety and develop their individuality.

Mental Health Aspects Of Autism And Asperger Syndrome (Author: Mohammad Ghaziuddin) is "The first book to address the increasingly urgent need for information about psychiatric problems in people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). This book systematically explains the emotional and psychological difficulties that are often encountered with ASDs. The author, an experienced psychiatrist specializing in autism, describes each of the conditions that are commonly seen in autistic children and adults, including schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and tic disorders, and gives sound guidance on their early diagnosis and treatment. Easy to use and authoritative , this book is an essential tool for use by both family and professionals." -- From the back of the book cover.

"Ten Days To Self-Esteem (Click on Picture to purchase from Amazon.com)

In Ten Days to Self-esteem, Dr. David Burns presents innovative, clear, and compassionate methods that will help you identify the causes of your mood slumps and develop a more positive outlook on life. You will learn that.

You FEEL the way you THINK: Negative feelings like guilt, anger, and depression do not result from the bad things that happen to you, but from the way you think about these events. This simple but revolutionary idea can change your life!

You can CHANGE the way you FEEL: You will discover why you get depressed and learn how to brighten your outlook when you're in a slump.

You can ENJOY greater happiness, productivity, and intimacy--without drugs or lengthy therapy.

Can a self-help book do all this? Studies show that two thirds of depressed readers of Dr. Burns's classic bestseller, Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, experienced dramatic relief in just four weeks without psychotherapy or antidepressant medications. Three-year follow-up studies revealed that readers did not relapse but continued to enjoy their positive outlook. Ten Days to Self-esteem offers a powerful new tool that provides hope and healing in ten easy steps. The methods are based on common sense and are not difficult to apply. Research shows that they really work!
