Description

NEW EDITION NOW AVAILABLE AS HELPING YOUR CHILD WITH FEARS AND WORRIES

Around 15% of children are thought to suffer from anxiety disorders, the most commonly identified emotional or behavioural problems among children. Based on techniques developed and practised by the authors, this book teaches parents how to use cognitive behavioural techniques with their children and in so doing, become their child's therapist, helping them to overcome any fears, worries and phobias.

Addresses specific fears and phobias as well as general anxiety and 'worrying'.

Provides step-by-step practical strategies.

Includes case studies, worksheets and charts.

Based on the authors' experience at their anxiety disorders clinic at the University of Reading and developed from a programme based on working almost exclusively with parents.

Review quote

A very thorough and detailed practical guide . . . which will be very useful for both therapists working with children with fears and worries, as well as families who are able to use this book as a "self-help" treatment guide. -- Dr Penny Titman, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Great Ormond Street Hospital
