When You Worry Too Much: 7 Books to Help Kids Overcome Anxiety, Worry, and Fear

If worry is overtaking your child’s life, this empowering workbook from the Instant Help for Parents and Kids series can help you work together to manage it — so kids can get back to their day-to-day adventures! In this workbook, two psychologists provide a selection of activities grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that help kids embrace uncertainly and actively adjust their thoughts and behaviors. Kids will learn why (some) worry is a good thing, how their bodies respond to worry, and what they can do to break out of destructive thought cycles through a variety of techniques. Most importantly, this book emphasizes the power of practice, showing kids how, as they climb the “practice ladder,” using their techniques will get easier all the time.
