Title: Simple techniques to relieve anxiety
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: L. N. Gruber

Description: Many patients can obtain rapid, short-term relief of anxiety through the use of simple, meditative techniques. Anxiety, tension, mild depressive feelings, and psychophysiologic symptoms frequently respond to such techniques. Five techniques are described, including physical self-support, attending to unpleasant feelings, listening to thoughts, listening to sounds, and paying attention to one's breathing. The techniques are easy to learn, innocuous, and well accepted by most patients. Patients who experience relief with simple psychological techniques are often more hopeful and more accessible to treatment.
