More about the book:
Your support package includes a copy of Helping your Child with Fears and Worries: A self-help guide for parents by Prof Cathy Cresswell and Lucy Willetts.
Fears and worries are very common among children with around 15% thought to suffer from anxiety disorders; the most commonly identified emotional or behavioural problems among children. However, if left unchecked, they can cause more serious problems such as school avoidance, difficulties in making friends and long-term problems with anxiety and depression.
Written by two of the UK’s foremost experts on childhood anxiety, this extremely useful guide will enable you to understand what is causing your child’s worries and to carry out step-by-step practical strategies to help him or her to overcome them, including:
· Addressing specific fears and phobias as well as general anxiety and ‘worrying’
· Using case studies, worksheets and charts
