Move past anxiety and discover what really matters to you. Written by three experts in teen mental health, this powerful workbook offers evidence-based activities grounded in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you cope with anxiety, build resilience, stop avoiding the things you fear, and lead a fuller, happier life.

Anxiety is what we feel when weíre scared about some future event that may or may not happen. When youíre struggling with anxiety your mind is trying to protect you from danger, so itís busy telling you about all the things you canít do. Along with these thoughts come a host of feelings and bodily sensationsósuch as sweaty palms, restlessness, lightheadedness, and stomach aches. But itís not the anxious thoughts that make anxiety a problem. Itís the actions we take, or donít take, as a result of these thoughts.

In The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Teen Anxiety, youíll find helpful alternatives to the ineffective strategies and habits youíre currently using to deal with anxiety, such as avoidance. Youíll find basic information about anxiety to help you recognize what it looks and feels like, mindfulness tips to help you stay in the moment when you feel worried about the future, and tips to help you connect with your own values so you can start putting the important things in life first.
