Helping Your Anxious Teen: Positive Parenting Strategies


Product Description

Published USA, 2016
Parenting an anxious teenager is a real challenge. Sheila Josephs specializes in cognitive behaviour therapy for anxiety. Her book involves parents in the treatment process as they will have a lasting and powerful impact on reducing anxiety in their children. The book particularly relies on exposure with response prevention, an incredibly effective way to decrease both anxiety and fear-based avoidance. The author outlines what works and what backfires when managing teenage anxiety, and devotes chapters to the constant worrier, the socially fearful teenager, the perfectionist and the irritable, stressed-out teenager. Each chapter provides short activities to try out an important concept. This is a thoughtful and well-informed book on the topic.

Sheila Josephs is a clinical psychologist and founder of Princeton Cognitive Therapy.
