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.

Susan Kuchinskas-The Chemistry Of Connection

When you make love, cuddle with a partner, or have coffee with close friends, a powerful brain chemical called oxytocin floods your body with feelings of contentment and trust. This natural love drug, produced by the hypothalamus, is responsible for human bonding in both platonic and intimate relationships, and is the key to many of the psychological differences between men and women.

Matthew McKay PhD, John P. Forsyth Ph.D., Georg H. Eifert Ph.D.-Your Life on Purpose

Image: 

So many of us postpone pursuing our goals and dreams because we think we'll get to them later, when we have more time or feel we're worthy of them. As a result, many of us go through life feeling weighed down by daily responsibilities and our own self-doubts, entirely disconnected from a sense of real purpose.

Judith P. Siegel Ph.D., LCSWC - Stop Overreacting

Image: 

When you are criticized or rejected, do you have a tendency to lash out or withdraw entirely? Both types of knee-jerk reactions can have lasting and unintended consequences, affecting our friendships, careers, families, and romantic relationships. The truth is, overreacting hurts us as much as it hurts the people around us. You may see overreacting as an unchangeable part of your personality, but in reality, this tendency, like any other, can be unlearned.

Do Your Emotions Seem to Run Your Life?
