One in every five kids suffers from a diagnosable anxiety disorder.
Anxiety is the number one mental health problem in America and the most frequent reason that parents bring their children to a mental health provider. There are seven core principles that can be successfully applied to any anxiety-related problem. While other books separate strategies based on each of the diagnosable anxiety disorders, this book presents a global plan of action with no unnecessary clinical jargon. The authors address the biggest myths, misconceptions, and mistakes that parents and professionals make when dealing with fears and phobias – which only perpetuate the worry cycle– with tips and tools for how to avoid them.

Editorial Reviews

This book is good reading for any one with a child that is experiencing anxiety. It discusses the roots of how anxiety develops and the ways you can avoid falling into the same traps that may have contributed to the anxiety in the first place. It feels very much on target. I have employed a number of suggestions from the book and have found them to be effective.
