For more than thirty years, New Harbinger Publications has brought readers effective, scientifically sound self-help books that deal with a range of topics in psychology, health, and personal growth.

Launched by psychologist Matthew McKay and writer Patrick Fanning in 1973, New Harbinger pioneered a style of self-help book that has become the standard of today. Fanning and McKay believed that the job of a self-help book was to teach readers skills they could use to significantly improve the quality of their lives. These books might inspire and enlighten in their own way, but they had to offer real tools for real change. McKay and Fanning’s writing partnership has yielded a dozen highly successful titles which have established the model for New Harbinger’s other books.

The values of our founders have, since the beginning, directed our publishing program. We value books that address the real problems of our readers. We value research-based and clinically proven books, written by respected, experienced clinical professionals. We value books that are concise and easy for every reader to understand. Our dedication to these standards has made us the first choice for general readers and professionals looking for effective, reliable information on a range of mental health, medical, and personal growth topics.

All of New Harbinger’s books are grounded in science, careful research, and a tradition of empirically validated clinical practice. Many of our titles are based in cognitive behavioral therapy, a method which has time and again been proven effective for treating a range of psychological problems. New Harbinger is also in the vanguard of developments in clinical practice. We are the leading publishers of books based in the new “third wave” of behavior therapy. Using acceptance and commitment therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, these books combine traditional cognitive and behavior-therapy techniques with other approaches like mindfulness and acceptance.

Although we publish books on familiar subjects like anxiety, depression, anger, relationships, and health, we also strive to recognize new diagnoses and offer self-help strategies based on the newest research. We were the first publisher to provide sufferers of fibromyalgia with a factual, reliable source of information about their little-understood condition. Our bestselling book Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain brought relief to thousands of people struggling with this condition. With more than half a million copies sold, this book has become an indispensable resource for professionals and patients alike.

New Harbinger books are distinguished and respected. The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook has sold more than 750,000 copies. It is widely regarded as the definitive self-help resource for anxiety sufferers, and thousands of professionals rely on it as an indispensable part of their practices.

Our titles are widely recommended by therapists, psychiatrists, and physicians to their patients and clients. The books have received accolades from reviewers in the health care and publishing industries alike, and many have remained in print for decades—a testament to their enduring quality and value.

In the coming years, we intend to expand our publishing program into several new and exciting areas. In every endeavor, though, you will always be able to depend on New Harbinger for reliable, practical, and relevant information about the topics that interest you most. Count on New Harbinger—we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Food has the power to temporarily alleviate stress and sadness, enhance joy, and bring us comfort when we need it most. It's no wonder experts estimate that 75 percent of overeating is triggered by our emotions, not physical hunger. The good news is you can instead soothe yourself through dozens of mindful activities that are healthy for both body and mind.

Even though statisticians report that more than 37 million Americans suffer from diagnosable social phobia, common sense suggests that nearly all of us have, at one time or another, had clammy palms and knocking knees because of an intimidating, uncomfortable social situation. The party where you donít know a single soul, the crowded lobby of a movie theatre, the presentation youíve been dreading for weeks-any of these have the potential to ruin your week without necessarily sending you to the psychiatristís couch.
