Freeing Your Child From Anxiety: Practical Strategies to Overcome Fears, Worries and Phobias


Product Description

Published USA, 2014 (revised & updated)
`Worry is a relentless exaggerator,` writes Tamar Chansky, `and for anxious kids it is the default first reaction.` To manage worry parents must challenge the credibility of a child`s automatic thoughts and cultivate a strong `second reaction` - what the author calls `speed dialing that voice of reason`. The cognitive-behavoural therapy so outlined can be implemented easily at home, and Chansky argues that it is a powerful tool. Her well presented book presents parents with a `Master Plan` (a set of six steps to implement in most anxiety situations), and a closer look at specific anxiety issues and situations.
