9781421420103: Calming Your Anxious Child: Words to Say and Things to Do

Ten million children in the United States―two million of them preschoolers―suffer from anxiety. Anxious children may be afraid to be out of their parents’ sight; they may refuse to talk except to specific people or under specific circumstances; they may insist on performing tasks such as brushing teeth or getting ready for bed in a rigidly specific way. For many children these difficulties interfere with doing well in school and making friends as well as with daily activities like sleeping, eating, and bathing. Untreated anxiety can have a devastating effect on a child’s future emotional, social, academic, and work life. And since most kids don’t naturally outgrow anxiety, parents need to know how to help.

In Calming Your Anxious Child, Dr. Kathleen Trainor builds on cognitive behavioral therapy to provide practical steps for guiding parents through the process of helping their children manage their anxieties and gain control over their worry-based behaviors. Dr. Trainor’s method involves identifying the anxieties and the behaviors, rating them, agreeing on what behaviors to work on changing, identifying strategies for changing behaviors, noting and charting progress, offering incentives, and reinforcing progress.

Combining family stories with practical advice and support, Calming Your Anxious Child teaches parents and caregivers how to empower their children to overcome their worried thoughts and behaviors. Children who have generalized anxiety, OCD, social anxiety, separation anxiety, phobias, or PTSD can all benefit from Dr. Trainor’s method, which also helps parents move from feeling controlled by their child’s anxiety to feeling that they are in control of their family’s future.

"Trainor provides a step-by-step approach to overcome worry-based behavior and empower both parent and child."

(Library Journal)

"Readability and usability is enhanced by the book's organization, accessible writing style, and index. Recommended."

(American Reference Books Annual)

"Dr. Trainor is a master. This splendid book about one of the major challenges in child-rearing clearly shows that anxiety is common in children and comes in many guises. Dr. Trainor brilliantly achieves her goal of providing help for a serious public health problem while remaining entertaining and encouraging."

(William H. Hughes, MD, Sutter Center for Psychiatry)

"Enjoyable, educational, and filled with detailed and realistic vignettes, Calming Your Anxious Child is a valuable guide."

(Patrick Kelly, MD, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA)

"It is a practical guide but there is some explanation of brain function and neural pathways."

(Nursing Times)
