Description: Bring fun and adventure back into your child’s life. In The Worry Workbook for Kids, two respected psychologists offer fun, action-based activities grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help your child move past fears of uncertainty, set and accomplish goals, and—most importantly—enjoy being a kid.

Today’s kids face intense pressures at school, with friends, and in life. But one of the most prevalent causes of worry in children is the fear of the unknown. Whether they are starting at a new school, trying out for a new sport, or going to a sleepover—for many kids who worry, it can be difficult moving from “What if?” to "Why not?" and trying new things. Sound familiar?

Written for children ages seven to twelve, this engaging workbook offers evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) tools to help kids embrace uncertainty and actually change their thoughts and behaviors by taking action—which will help bring adventure, fun, and freedom back into their lives! The practices in this workbook can be used anytime, anyplace, to help kids put a stop to worry before worry takes over.

Childhood is a precious time that goes by so quickly, and chronic worrying can take a hefty toll both mentally and physically. Teaching kids how to deal with stress early will set them up for a lifetime of happiness and success. This workbook can help you do just that.
Book Review: “The Worry Workbook for Kids is filled with practical activities for teaching children effective methods to manage their anxiety and worry. The book translates well-researched strategies into language that children will find engaging, easy to understand, and fun. Every child who struggles with anxiety (as well as their parents) should check out this book!”
—Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, professor of psychology at Ryerson University, Toronto, ON, Canada; and coauthor of The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook

“Khanna and Ledley, in an engaging style and full of activities, guide parents in teaching kids resilience and confidence at times when they may otherwise, unwittingly, fall into worry. The book is for all the ‘what ifs’—all the varieties of worry. This easily read and understood workbook, presented in three parts, is based on sound psychological knowledge, and provides kid-friendly examples and illustrations. In an age of increasing anxiety and worry in youth, this workbook is both highly valuable and timely?.”
—Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished University Professor and Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University
