The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens
When teens have anxiety, their fears and worries can keep them from feeling confident and independent. Teen milestones such as making friends, dating, getting good grades, or taking on more mature responsibilities may seem much more difficult.
The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens is a much-needed, go-to guide to help teens finally break free from the worry and ruminations that can get in the way of reaching goals.
Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this book helps teens identify their "monkey mind" -- the primitive part of the brain where anxious thoughts arise. Teens will be able to determine whether they suffer from generalized anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or separation anxiety.
By learning practical strategies for handling even the toughest situations, teens can gain a sense of control and feel more independent and confident.

All of New Harbinger’s books are grounded in science, careful research, and a tradition of empirically validated clinical practice.
