From Publishers' Weekly:

In a deceptively simple style, author and psychologist Lawlis (Mending the Broken Bond, The ADD Answer, etc.), best known as a consultant on TV's Dr. Phil, offers a sophisticated overview of the latest neurological research, and how it can be integrated with cognitive therapy to treat mental and emotional disorders in ways "light-years ahead of [current] methods." Key is the discovery of "brain plasticity," the organ's "amazing capacity for creating backup systems that can renew lost functions"; as such, the brain can be re-wired for better functioning through exercises (imaging, breathing, "thought-stopping techniques") and lifestyle changes (setting aside 30 minutes a day to relax). Lawlis maintains a useful focus on reigning in what he calls "stress storms," when overloaded brain circuits lose their capacity for "[l]ogic and rational thinking," leaving one "stuck in a mental ditch, with the engine revving and wheels spinning, but no forward movement." Including several useful tools for self-diagnosis, in-depth looks at various kinds of "storms," and a 45-day program to apply his method, this guide to de-stressing will help those willing to put some effort into mental healing.
