    This book offers comfort and psychoeducation to readers as well as psychological explanation of concepts to mental health and medical professionals. The importance of understanding how disease, illness, and health affect our emotional and mental wellbeing cannot be overstated. The book is divided into four sections: a description of illness anxiety and its diagnostic criteria; coping strategies for managing illness-related anxiety; a section describing how patients heal from Illness Anxiety Disorder; and a section containing practical exercises, meditations, and activities. This book is a relevant resource that will highlight an underrepresented area of psychological literature.
