The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens: CBT Skills to Overcome Fear, Worry, and Panic

Review: The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens: - Jennifer and Doug Shannon - August 2015

I am so glad that books like this one are avaliable these days, as I wish that we had more of them when I was a teenager as I found myself reading alot of the adult Self-Help books like 7 Habits of Highly Effective People etc. As teens, we find that being anxious is a horrible feeling and it can be for anyone when they feel anxiety but as a teenager we have a lot more going on in our worlds from schooling, family, friends, peer pressure and jobs. All this can build up on us and if we are one to keep it inside, it can unfortunately bubble up to the surface and cause damaging effects to our lives. Jennifer Shannon's book teaches teens the different kinds of anxiety we can suffer from generalised anxiety - which is worrying about everything family, school - (this is the most common) and I have to admit that I still do this and it's not good as it can make you feel nauseated and develop insomnia as you can't sleep as you are worrying about what is going to happen, separation anxiety , phobias , panic attacks and the more severe of agoraphobia. Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this book helps you identify your "monkey mind"—the primitive part of the brain where anxious thoughts arise. You’ll also be able to determine if you suffer from generalized anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or separation anxiety. Full of powerful yet simple cartoon illustrations, this book will teach you practical strategies for handling even the toughest situations that previously caused you to feel anxious or worried.
So if you are a teen and wanting to read about how you can improve your anxiety skills, then check out "The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens".
