Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—This installment of this series of health self-help guides for teens focuses on using cognitive-behavioral therapy to overcome anxiety. Everyone feels nervous or upset on occasion, says Shannon, but when anxiety negatively affects self-esteem and independence, additional support is needed. This easy-to-read volume helps readers recognize when the "monkey mind," or the primitive, instinctual part of the brain, is doing the thinking and offers advice in overcoming those thoughts. The author's strategies are practical and designed to help teens facing all kinds of anxiety-inducing scenarios. VERDICT While this book isn't necessarily one that teens would self-select from the library shelves, it's a good option as a desk copy for middle and high school counselors.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

“This easy-to-read volume helps readers recognize when the 'monkey mind,' or the primitive, instinctual part of the brain, is doing the thinking and offers advice in overcoming those thoughts. The author’s strategies are practical and designed to help teens facing all kinds of anxiety-inducing scenarios.”
School Library Journal


“We know how to win over fearful worry. The skills take effort, but they are surprisingly simple. Now Jennifer Shannon places these tools directly into your hands. If you will act on her clever guidance, you can do more than survive, you can thrive.”
Reid Wilson, PhD, coauthor of Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents and Playing with Anxiety: Casey’s Guide for Teens and Kids


“With clarity and fun, The Anxiety and Survival Guide for Teens offers effective cognitive behavioral strategies for teens to overcome their fear, worry, and panic. This book will not only help teens survive their anxiety, but will guide them out of the fear and worry that limits their lives. I highly recommend it.”
Michael A. Tompkins, PhD, author of My Anxious Mind: A Teen’s Guide to Managing Anxiety and Panic and codirector of the San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy


“This is a terrific book for teens, explaining all the best that cognitive behavioral therapy, ACT, and mindfulness have to offer in terms that are engaging, fun, and easy to understand. Teens can easily recognize themselves in this book and become empowered to overcome their anxiety.”
Karen Lynn Cassiday, PhD, managing director at The Anxiety Treatment Center of Greater Chicago and clinical assistant professor at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science


The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens by Jennifer Shannon is a clear, concise, helpful guide with all the key tools to help you overcome your anxiety. Why suffer another day from anxiety when you can use these tools right now? Each chapter gives you powerful and easy-to-understand self-help tools to overcome the many difficulties that teens will face. I will recommend this to my colleagues and clients.”
Robert L. Leahy, PhD, director of the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy in New York, NY, and author of The Worry Cure: Seven Steps to Stop Worry from Stopping You
 


“All parents want to lift the burden of stress from their teen’s shoulders, but many teens don’t want to talk about it. They do, however, desperately want to feel better. In a completely clear, accessible, and engaging way, Jennifer Shannon’s Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens tells teens exactly what they need to do to help themselves do just that. The simple exercises in this book teach teens how to break free from their anxiety and see themselves and their lives in a whole new light—a more realistic one. Every teen will benefit from the strategies Ms. Shannon provides. I highly recommend this wonderful book!”
Tamar Chansky, PhD, author of Freeing Your Child from Anxiety and Freeing Yourself from Anxiety: 4 Simple Steps to Overcome Worry and Create the Life You Want

 


“Relief is on the way for anxious teens. The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens teaches proven steps to uncover the causes and learn what to do to manage anxiety. Unlike many similar books, this guide addresses all types of anxiety with drawings and helpful stories about common situations faced by teens and young adults. Whether mildly or super anxious, complete the exercises in this book to get a grip on your anxiety.”
Christine A. Padesky, PhD, psychologist and coauthor of Mind Over Mood
 


“This is the first self-help book I’ve ever read where the narrator doesn’t over-romanticize the possibilities to get better soon. What a relief! In a calm, orderly manner, author Jennifer Shannon characterizes and gives specific instructions for different kinds of anxiety: shyness and social anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, specific phobias, generalized anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The tone is just so warm and pleasant, and every teen who suffers from anxiety—but doesn’t know what kind yet—can easily recognize him or herself in the detailed and often funny examples, without being scared to death. It’s the best introduction to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that I’ve ever seen, and it’s amazing that it’s written specifically for teens, because they need it so much. I wish it had existed for little teenage me.”
—Peter Henrichsen, editor at Youth Culture Denmark
