From Worry to Winning:
Tools to Help Kids Reclaim Superpowers and Beat AnxietyYou probably don’t need statistics from the American Psychological Association to tell you that anxiety in our kids is on the rise. You see it in your kids, hear about it from friends, or you see it in your classroom. The reason for the increase is likely complex but ground-breaking research continues and eventually will help us find more targeted solutions. Until then, you and your kids need tools to help manage their daily worries so they don’t miss out on the experiences that help them grow and learn. The tips offered in this workbook are designed as a supplement to a support system, not as a replacement for professional care. We recommend families work together with a trained therapist and consistently practice using the tools offered here and in therapy.
