School Library Journal Review

Clinical psychologist Walker, PhD, whose skills are based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), assists parents in taking a leading role in helping their elementary-aged child overcome anxiety, panic, and obsessions. The author begins by explaining that "children with anxiety disorders often function well in terms of grades, achievement, and more, yet live a tortured internal life rife with worry, fear, or excessive guilt or feelings of responsibility." Despite doomsday scenarios never coming to realization, children with anxiety are often unable to take away from the situation positive solutions and therefore must learn to identify negative thinking, work to change those thoughts, and then modify specific behaviors. -VERDICT Although the sample dialogue feels a bit staged, it adeptly illustrates a parent's role. Those with the confidence and consistency to implement the practices introduced here will find -Walker's approach useful.-Julia M. -Reffner, Richmond, VA © Copyright 2018.
