Publisher's Summary

Most children are afraid of the dark. Some fear monsters under the bed. But 10 percent of children have excessive fears and worries - phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder - that can hold them back and keep them from fully enjoying childhood. If your child suffers from any of these forms of anxiety, the program in this book offers practical, scientifically proven tools that can help.

Now in its second edition, Helping Your Anxious Child has been expanded and updated to include the latest research and techniques for managing child anxiety. You'll learn how to help your child overcome intense fears and worries and find out how to relieve anxious feelings while parenting with compassion.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Where does Helping Your Anxious Child rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I got a lot out of this book and could see a lot of links to what we are going through. Time will tell if the work book and techniques are helpful. The PDF link in audible was not worth it as it's just a certificate. You do need to go to another site to download the free workbook that goes with it.
The only retraction is the constant "his or her" when referring to your child. I would relate no matter the gender and you could always use gender neutral terms. At times I lost the message due to the number of times this term was said in a sentence.
