Anxiety-Free Kids: An Interactive Guide for Parents and Children

Anxiety-Free Kids offers parents strategies that help children become happy and worry free, methods that relieve a child’s excessive anxieties and phobias, and tools for fostering interaction and family-oriented solutions. Using a unique companion approach that offers two books in one—a practical, reader-friendly book for parents and a fun workbook for kids—this solutions-oriented guide utilizes the cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy by integrating the parent in the child’s self-help process.

Research has shown that if left untreated, children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, to have less developed social skills, and to be more vulnerable to substance abuse. The author employs cognitive-behavioral therapy, the most empirically supported treatment of anxiety disorders, along with a family approach to build a supportive team to help kids with anxiety successfully overcome their worries.

Covering the six most commonly occurring anxiety disorders in childhood—generalized anxiety, separation anxiety, specific phobias, social phobias, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder—this book gives kids and their parents successful strategies for achieving relaxation, conquering worries, challenging faulty thinking patterns, developing positive self-talk, and facing one’s fears.

    I am a psychiatrist specializing in anxiety disorders. I find this book very impressive. It employs proven scientificaly based approaches to help kids with a wide range of anxiety symptoms. It is presented in an easy to understand, and easy to use format. The book synthesizes a wide range of therapeutic approaches in a manner that can be easily translated into immediate application by the layman. If you learn whats in this book, you will know more than most therapists about treating childhood anxiety disorders! I highly recommend this book.

    Dr Zucker’s book is truly one of a kind – the idea of pairing a book for BOTH the parent and the child is excellent – the book is easy to read – puts forth workable suggestions and strategies – and enables me to integrate my child in the process of learning how to deal with every day issues stemming from anxiety – I highly recommend this book to any parent regardless of the level of anxiety your child may be experiencing!

    Superb Resource for Parents, Children and Therapists, March 16, 2009

    As a psychologist who sees children with anxiety disorders, I was extremely impressed with Dr. Zucker’s book. The book has practical and sensible ideas for parents. Unlike other books I’ve seen, it also has a unique pull-out section for children so they can better understand and master their own fears. I also found the book had new ideas for me as a therapist that I can utilize in my practice.
