More children are now suffering from debilitating symptoms of anxiety than ever before. What can a parent do when constant worry and fear rob a child of the ability to enjoy life? In this book, Dr. Robin Alter offers an answer. Dr. Alter is a clinical psychologist with over thirty years experience helping troubled children, both in her own private practice and also as a consulting psychologist at a large children’s mental health centre in Toronto. Here Dr. Alter shares the approach that has been successful with so many of her clients. She explains how a runaway imagination can trigger needless anxiety, and she offers practical tools and strategies for regaining control and avoiding years of distress. With two chapters written especially for children, this book will help you and your child to understand the imagination, to respect its power, and finally to achieve a more peaceful alliance with it.
