Anxiety isn't only for adults. An estimated 25 percent of teens suffer from mild to serious anxiety, and many of them get little or no help. The good news is that anxiety is a highly treatable condition and by learning coping skills teens build a defense against anxiety that can last into adulthood. The Anxiety Workbook for Teens offers a collection of the most effective techniques for preventing anxiety and defusing it when it hits. It shows teens how to change anxiety-producing thoughts, perform breathing and bodywork exercises, and develop problem-solving skills that can short-circuit anxiety. This book is a must-have for any teen troubled by persistent anxiety or any professional who works with them.
