From the bestselling author of Living with IT and Taming the Black Dog comes a practical guide for parents of anxious children.
If your child is too often: seeks reassurance, invents illnesses, avoids interactions, avoids trying new things, becomes emotional over minor upsets, or is clingy, afraid to sleep alone, reluctant to go to school or scared of numerous things... then anxiety could be an issue for them.
Commonly, a child experiencing anxiety doubts themselves, lacks confidence and becomes easily overwhelmed. So how do you best help them?
From Australia's bestselling anxiety expert, Bev Aisbett, comes an essential guide for these anxious times. Worry-Proofing Your Anxious Child is a calm, clear and, above all, reassuring book to help parents (and teachers) of anxious children.
Filled with simple explanations and practical advice, this book will assist everyone who wants to help a child overcome their anxieties and learn to live more confidently.
Bev Aisbett is Australia's leading author in books around managing anxiety. In 1993, after recovering from severe anxiety and depression herself, Bev turned to her artistic talents to create the first of her ground-breaking illustrated self-help books Living with IT: A Survivor's Guide to Panic Attacks, which rapidly became a national bestseller, with over 200,000 copies sold.
In 2013, HarperCollins published the fully revised and updated 20th anniversary edition of this classic book.
Bev Aisbett is an author, illustrator, cartoonist and counsellor. She has had over 11 books published, most notably the national bestsellers Living with It: A Survivor's Guide to Panic Attacks and Taming the Black Dog: A Guide to Overcoming Depression.
Over the last 15 years, Bev's freelance illustrations and cartoons have appeared in the major press and numerous community and corporate publications.
An experienced counsellor, Bev has designed a unique recovery program designed to educate people about anxiety and provide them with the tools with which to build their own recovery, just as Bev herself has done.
The Art of Anxiety workshop (formerly Working with IT) has since guided thousands of people in the 'art' of effectively managing anxiety and related conditions since 1998.
Her most recent book, 30 Days, 30 Ways to Overcome Anxiety (2018) is already a national bestseller.
