Description

Working with Worry is designed to give parents practical tools they can use to support their children as they try to manage their anxiety in today's increasingly stressful world. It is a hands-on workbook that you can turn to for easy-to-understand information, recommendations, and support.Parents will learn about what anxiety looks like in children, reflect on their own experiences with anxiety, and find a wealth of intervention activities to try with their children. The activities use proven techniques including mindfulness, creativity, and self-regulation, and are organized by type of intervention, age, and areas of interest. This book is unlike any other workbook available on this subject because it offers both education and guidance around supporting children, while helping parents understand the need to be self-reflective about their own relationships with anxiety. Key features of this book:
  • Over 60 interventions and activities organized by type, age, and areas of interest
  • An entire chapter dedicated to helping parents understand their own anxiety, their ability to influence their children's experience of anxiety, and also how to "keep their stuff together"
  • A chapter focused on how to combine the gains of parents and their children in a successful maintenance plan for the whole family
  • Easy to understand language from authors who are not only experts offering professional guidance, but are also parents themselves who can relate to the challenges of raising children today
