Anxiety Mapping for Kids may be the most concise and useful tool I have come across for use in treating anxiety in therapy with children. It is practical, easy to understand, and easy to apply. It covers all the basics, with the addition of a fresh approach using tools that are kid-friendly. I wish a book like this had been available when I began my counseling practice nearly 20 years ago. It is an excellent resource and one I highly recommend!
It can be heartbreaking and sometimes overwhelming for a parent to watch their child struggle with anxiety and unhappiness. Using the techniques provided in this manual will allow a parent to offer their child a variety of concrete methods of coping that substitute structure for disorganization and fun and joy for fear. This very positive approach also takes the parent’s own struggles and fears for their child out of the equation and allows the child a clearer path to a healthier future.
Anxiety mapping is a great tool to help identify any students suffering from anxiety. As teachers, we often see the symptoms, but we are not aware of the cause or how to help remedy the problem. This powerful tool will guide teachers in helping students cope with anxiety caused by everyday events.
