As a registered psychologist, former teacher, and consultant for UNICEF, Hawton (Talk Less, Listen More) noticed an increase in the anxiety levels of children seen in his practice. This guide is designed to come alongside parents and their children in handling life’s challenges. The book examines how anxiety operates, how patterns start in families, and how to enact change. The author also guides readers through techniques to develop emotional strength and balance. Exploring the addictive design of games, using exercise to build relaxed alertness, and practicing such techniques as breath waltz, alphabet legs, and self-safe hypnosis, this manual is centered in cognitive behavioral therapy skills. Case studies, flowcharts to guide the parent’s decision-making process, and worksheets are included in this implement-heavy guide.
VERDICT Filled with practical ideas, this will prove an ideal guide for the parents and children who struggle with anxiety.
