This book was inspired by a request from a colleague. He suggested I write an evidence-based book for the millions of people across the globe who have needle fears and phobias. The sad reality is there are simply not enough trained mental health professionals to offer individualized treatment for those fearful of getting vaccinated, visiting their dentist, or having blood withdrawn.
Conquer Needle Phobia was written to offer you practical tools that you can use whenever you face getting your next shot, receiving a needle injection, or having your blood drawn. Use this book as a reference and resource companion to gain greater knowledge, reduced anxiety, and increased confidence. Facing your fears is never easy, but the hope is that after reading this book you will at very least find the prospect of getting injections of any kind more tolerable.
