Book Overview

Most children are afraid of the dark. Some fear monsters under the bed. But at least ten percent of children have excessive fears and worries--phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder--that can hold them back and keep them from fully enjoying childhood. If your child suffers from any of these forms of anxiety, the program in this book offers practical, scientifically proven tools that can help.

Now in its second edition, Helping Your Anxious Child has been expanded and updated to include the latest research and techniques for managing child anxiety. The book offers proven effective skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to aid you in helping your child overcome intense fears and worries. You'll also find out how to relieve your child's anxious feelings while parenting with compassion.

Inside, you will learn to:

  • Help your child practice detective thinking to recognize irrational worries
  • What to do when your child becomes frightened
  • How to gently and gradually expose your child to challenging situations
  • Help your child learn important social skills

This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit--an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive Read More chevron_right

   Concise advice produced quick results
But she has always been painfully shy in new situations, to the point that it can prevent her from engaging in activities. Our first approaches of reassurance, setting expectations, and other suggestions gleaned from internet research never helped. However, it only took reading this first chapter of the book to get several simple suggestions that made a huge difference. She clung to us every morning when we took her to her first grade classroom and had to be peeled off by the teacher, sometimes in tears. She waltzes right in and I have to remind her to give me a kiss goodbye. She still gets shy in new groups, but the paralyzing fear is gone and we have tools to deal with it, he said. We may have only read a part of this book, but it was well spent.

   Great book
This book has a lot of good information about how to help a child with anxiety, Raymond said. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

   No more "Bully Brain!"
What a great help for my sensitive little perfectionist, Nikia. The negative-talk that my little girl heard in her own brain since she was very small was so disturbing to a mother. Working as a Special Ed teacher for 18 years just didn't come close to preparing me to raise a highly sensitive child to become a happy, strong little girl! My daughter is a soccer goalkeeper, is the only girl on the boys travel baseball team, is a Student Council Secretary and even participated in some really goofy talent shows in the last couple years.

   Very helpful
My grandson is 4 and he is having major temper tantrums, his mom said. It was a struggle for him to express his feelings and it would bubble into a tantrum. By modifying some of the techniques in the book, we have seen a difference, he said.

   Great help for parents of anxious kids
The book was written by a licensed therapist who works with anxious kids. I have several copies and I lend them out to parents which makes my job a lot easier.

   Book aimed at school age children
I'm sure this is a great book, I thought I read the description, but I goofed because this is for older kids _ school age kids. Because my daughter is only 3, this book doesn't have much in it, I'll keep it and hope I won't need it later!

   Excellent, practical resource!
The plan makes sense to parents and offers a free downloadable workbook for kids. My daughter absolutely loves it, and so do I!
