The Panic Workbook for Teens
Panic attacks are scary. They can make a person feel out of control -- leading to more anxiety, stress, fear and even depression. This easy-to-use workbook provides step-by-step instructions to help teens identify anxiety-inducing thoughts, mindfully observe them, and stop the cycle of panic, once and for all.
Teens with a panic disorder may sometimes feel like the walls are closing in, or that something dreadful is about to happen. The most frustrating thing about panic attacks is that they can happen anytime, anywhere. Teens may go through their day fearing another attack, their fears getting in the way of school, friends and their day-to-day life.
In The Panic Workbook for Teens, three anxiety specialists show how to identify anxiety-causing thoughts and behaviors, and mindfully observe panic attacks instead of struggling against them. Teens can learn how to experience the sensations associated with panic, recognizing the feelings are uncomfortable but not dangerous.
By learning how to objectively monitor their panic attacks, teens can gain a sense of control and learn to work through even the toughest moments of extreme anxiety.
