An Interactive Guide for Parents and Children
Anxiety-Free Kids offers parents strategies that help children become happy and worry free, methods that relieve a child’s excessive anxieties and phobias, and tools for fostering interaction and family oriented situations. Using a unique companion approach – a practical, reader-friendly book for parents and a fun workbook for kids – this solutions-oriented guide utilises the cognitive–behavioural approach to therapy by integrating the parent in the child’s self-help process.
Research has shown that if left untreated, children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, to have less-developed social skills and to be more vulnerable to substance abuse. Covering the six most commonly occurring anxiety disorders in childhood – generalised anxiety, separation anxiety, specific phobias, social phobias, panic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder – this book gives kids and their parents successful strategies for achieving relaxation, conquering worries, challenging faulty thinking patterns, developing positive self-talk and facing one’s fears.
This two-book set includes both Anxiety-Free Kids: An Interactive Guide for Parents and Children and a copy of Anxiety-Free Kids: For Kids Only, a “kids only” companion guide that includes kid-friendly chapters from the parents’ guide and activities for helping the child overcome their anxiety.
Additional copies of the Anxiety-Free Kids: For Kids Only Companion Guide are also available to purchase, should you want to use the parents’ guide for multiple children in your school or practice.
