From the Publisher

About one in four teens suffers from mild to serious problems with anxiety, and many of them get little or no help. This workbook, written by an experienced therapist, gives teens a collection of tools to help control anxiety and face day-to-day challenges. This workbook both gives anxious teens insight into their problems and offers practical guidance for overcoming them.

I am a therapist who was looking for a good workbook w/ tools to help w/ anxiety for my adolescent population. Although this workbook has some good materials it seems to be more appropriate for preteen or younger teens. Which is still helpful for me. For parents looking for a good workbook I would recommend this book for kids 11 through 14 or 15. Older than that I would look into books geared toward adults, as I think older teens would find this book immature.

I'm using this workbook with my 13 yr old together with some professional counseling to help him with bedtime anxiety and panic attacks. It is an easy to follow format. Very short narratives at the beginning of each lesson so for those kids who don't want another "homework" assignment they really don't have to work too hard. It's a great resource for helping them to look inside themselves for answers and perhaps look at their thoughts and actions differently. We've only been using it about 3 weeks and he's still a little resistant to changing his thought patterns at night but we're working on it day by day. I'm very hopeful that he will grow through this over the coming weeks/months and embrace the many ways to control his anxieties. Definitely recommend for parents who have been trying to help their child but meeting with lots of resistance.

This series of workbooks has never disappointed me in my practice with teens in a day treatment center. The teens relate to them well and I am starting to use them more than my previous resources. I would buy any one of them in the future.

So far this workbook has helped me figure somee things out about myself. My therapist recommended I buy it and it is an organized way of thinking about what stresses you out. The only reason I give it a 4 star is because I think it is meant for younger teens (I am 18) as opposed to late teens. I feel like the actual lessons are a bit elementary, things I already know or can do an easier way. That also may just be me.

Overall I recommend getting this book because even if you know your problem spots and how to deal with them, this book can tell you how to get rid of the weight on your shoulders.

I am a mental health counselor working with adolescents aged 13-18. After looking through these books (anger and anxiety by the same author), I don't think it's fair to market this to teens. My clients were offended by the youthfulness of the exercises and would not even humor me to engage in the worksheets. As a clinician I can look at the workbooks and see that they do have good stuff in them that is worth discussion, but the actual worksheets/workbook are more appropriate for pre-teens 10-12ish. Just my opinion though, it's possible it's just my particular population/region.

I'm a high school social worker, and I purchased this book to use as a resource and curriculum for my teens struggling with anxiety. I find it to be good at moments and just okay at others. To me, it actually skews rather young than for just teens in general. The ideas are VERY simplistic- great for 9th graders but seem too simple or young for my older students. It seems most appropriate for middle school or early highs school in my opinion. All in all, decent exercises and lessons though. Good tool for teens with anxiety issues, but not great.

I bought this book to utilize with a teen girls support group I am currently leading. I found it to be packed with useful ideas, questions, activities, suggestions, handouts, and more. It's a great resource for a school or mental health professional to have on the shelf and refer to or make copies from to talk through with teens. This seems to be a book best used in a setting where these can be talked through, as opposed to just filled out personally. It covers a pretty broad range of topics but is very straightforward.
Overall, I think it's a great resource!

Thanks so much,
