Anxiety Relief for Kids: On-the-Spot Strategies to Help Your Child Overcome Worry, Panic & Avoidance. Bridget Flynn Walker, $23.95

Being a parent is tough work. And when your child has an anxiety disorder, the tough gets upgraded to downright hard. You love your child, and it hurts to see them afraid or constantly worried. But life needs to be lived, and schedules often need to be kept — especially if your child is in school! So, how can you manage your child’s anxiety during those trying moments when you just need to get from A to B without losing your sanity?

Anxiety Relief for Kids provides quick solutions based in evidence-based CBT and exposure therapy—two of the most effective treatments for anxiety disorders. You’ll find a background and explanation of the different types of anxiety disorders, in case you aren’t sure whether or not your child has one. You’ll also learn to identify your child’s avoidant and safety behaviors — the strategies your child uses to cope with their anxiety, such as repeatedly checking their homework or asking the same questions repeatedly — as well as anxiety triggers that set your child off.

With this book, you’ll find a wealth of information regarding your child’s specific anxiety disorder and how to respond to it. For example, if your child has obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), the skills you use to help them are different than other anxiety disorders. No matter your child’s specific symptoms or diagnosis, you’ll discover tailored interventions you can use now to help your child thrive. If your child has an anxiety disorder, simple, everyday activities can be a real challenge. The practical solutions in this book will help you deal with your child’s anxiety when it happens and restore balance and order to both your lives.

Working with Parents of Anxious Children: Therapeutic Strategies for Encouraging Communication, Coping, & Change. Christopher McCurry, $34.95

The topic of anxious children is on the front burner these days, both among parents and mental health professionals, as more and more clinicians are presented with anxious kids in their practices. Anxiety symptoms — whether panic, OCD, phobias, social or separation anxiety — are one of the primary reasons parents seek help from a mental health professional for their child. And yet, parents may unintentionally reward or encourage the problem through their own behavior (i.e. overprotection, punishment, or avoidance of all possible anxiety-provoking situations). This book will tackle that very issue, exploring the critical parent-child “dance” at the center of child development and uncovering how, with the proper knowledge and tools at hand, therapists can guide parents in changing their dynamic, so anxious outbursts are reduced and a child’s confidence and growth are better supported.

A range of techniques that therapists can teach parents will be presented, including how to “change the choreography” — the parent-child dynamic — and how to work with “goodness of fit," or temperamental differences between a parent and a child. Parent management training and parent-child interaction training strategies will also be provided.

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.
