Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Psychologist Schachter, director of New York's Children's Phobia Center, and McCauley, author of Pregnancy After 35, cover an intricate subject in this extensive guide. Supported by case histories, the text pinpoints "normal" fears affecting children from infancy through age 16. Descriptions of various fears precede advice on how to deal with childhood dreads before they become inhibiting phobias. Parents, guardians and teachers can learn to recognize symptoms listed in the book's Fear Survey Chart and in boxed paragraphs that summarize each chapter's focus. For example, babies and very small children are terrified of loud noises, losing their parents when left with a sitter, etc.; by stages, older children worry about rejection, failing in school, nuclear war, sexual assaults and many other possibilities, real or imagined. The authors provide guidance on behavior modification and other therapies when professional help is indicated. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.

From Library Journal

Psychologist Schachter, director of New York's Children's Phobia Center, and writer McCauley help parents and teachers alleviate over 40 "normal" fears that develop in children from birth through age 16. A structured format incorporates helpful information under the headings "definition," "symptoms," "motivation," and "what to do," with anecdotes enlivening an otherwise didactic yet readable text. Despite organizational devices, some discontinuity exists. While Schachter espouses behavior modification and his own "kinetic psychotherapy," Joel Feiner and Graham Yost's more substantive Taming Monsters, Slaying Dragons ( LJ 12/87) advocates family therapy.

Format: Paperback
Excellent resource describing fears and how to handle.
Authors have done an outstanding job of information that is provided in a normalizing way. Fear is a normal developmental task that adults often fail to understand. This book is a great resource!
