The Anxiety Gremlin loves one thing – to feed on your anxiety! But watch out, as the fuller he gets, the more anxious you get! How can you stop him? Starve him of his favourite food – your anxiety – and he'll shrink and shrivel away.

Starving the Anxiety Gremlin is a unique resource to help young people understand different types of anxiety and how to manage them, including panic attacks, phobias, social anxiety, generalised anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder. Based on cognitive behavioural principles that link thoughts, feelings and behaviours, the techniques described help young people to understand why they get anxious and how they can 'starve' their anxiety gremlin in order to manage their anxiety.

This engaging workbook uses fun activities and real life stories, and can be used by young people aged 10+ on their own or with a parent or practitioner. It is also an ideal anxiety management resource for those working with young people, including mental health practitioners, social workers, education sector staff and youth workers.

Reviews:

'Starving the Anxiety Gremlin is a well-written comprehensive workbook that helps readers identify the sources of their anxiety and learn effective ways of coping. The activities are fun, engaging, and practical. This book is a recommended read for any teen wanting to break free from anxiety.'
—Raychelle Cassada Lohmann, MS, LPC, professional school counselor and author of The Anger Workbook for Teens and co-author of The Bullying Workbook for Teens
