Summary Worry has a way of growing, shifting from not-a-big-deal to a VERY BIG DEAL in the blink of an eye. This big-deal Worry is tricky, luring children into behaviours that keep the anxiety cycle going. Children often find it hard to fight back against Worry, but not anymore. Outsmarting Worry teaches 9-13 year olds and the adults who care about them a specific set of skills that makes it easier to face - and overcome - worries and fears. Smart, practical, proven techniques are presented in language immediately accessible to children with an emphasis on shifting from knowing to doing, from worried to happy and free.
Contents Getting started -- The brain-body message system -- Danger learning and safety behaviors -- False alarms -- Where's the evidence? -- Thinking mistakes -- Worry loves to debate -- Shifting your attention -- Hanging out with worry -- Worry's biggest trick -- Breaking free from worry -- Jumping in -- Exposure -- Worry in disguise -- What to do when there is nothing to do -- More on exposure -- But I'm still scared! -- putting it all together.
