If you feel anxious most of the time, you're not alone. There is no one in the world who doesn't feel anxious at some time. And it is even more common to feel anxious during adolescence, because so many changes are taking place in your body, your mind, and your emotions. The good news is that there are a lot of effective techniques you can use, both on your own and with the help of a counselor, to reduce your feelings of anxiety and learn how to keep them from taking over your life. This workbook offers a set of simple activities you can do to make it happen.

The Anxiety Workbook for Teens will show you how to deal with the day-to-day challenges of anxiety. It will help you develop a positive self-image and recognize your anxious thoughts.

Anxiety is a common and very treatable condition. Working through the activities in this book will give you many ideas on how to both prevent and handle your anxiety. Some of the activities may seem unusual at first. You may be asked to try doing things that are very new to you. They are tools, intended for you to carry with you and use over and over throughout your life. The more you practice using them, the better you will become at managing anxiety.

I love this series of books and workbooks for students. As a school counselor, I use these books with students (individuals and groups) and I really find them useful. With all of the pressure kids are under today, there are lots of reasons that this anxiety workbook would be useful to teens. There are great activities in this book that are helpful and useful and provide great conversation starters. The activities in the workbook are so great that you will use them again and again. I highly recommend this workbook and series.
