Description-

  • It's time to retrain your brain! In this go-to guide for teens, four anxiety experts offer tangible tips and tools you can use every day to rewire your anxious brain; manage fears, stress, and worry; and get back to living your life.

    When you're feeling anxious, it can seem like the whole world is crashing in around you. Your heart starts racing, your thoughts feel jumbled, and you may feel like something terrible is going to happen, or worse. You aren't alone. In fact, millions of teens experience anxiety. The good news is that there are proven-effective tools you can use now to take control of your anxiety so you can focus on the stuff you love. This book will guide the way.

    Drawing on powerful cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), neuroscience, mindfulness, and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), this book will show you the ten most effective methods for "rewiring" your anxious brain. You'll learn:

  • How to calmly observe your anxiety
  • What feeds your anxiety, and how you can "starve" it instead
  • Guided meditations for overcoming anxious thoughts
  • Strategies to help you balance your emotions when fears and worries show up
  • How to deal with uncertainty, perfectionism, and procrastination
  • Most importantly, you'll learn that you are stronger than your anxiety, and you have the power to take control of your fears. Let's face it—being a teen today is stressful and sometimes scary. But if you're ready to put anxiety in its place and start focusing on the things that matter to you the most, this much-needed guide can help get you started.

    April 1, 2020
    This workbook for teens suffering from anxiety offers lessons, examples, and exercises. Ten chapters instruct readers in rewiring their brains in various ways to reduce or eliminate the limitations imposed by symptoms of anxiety on daily life. The chapters address self-denigrating thoughts, staying in the present moment, coping with emotional pain, developing resilience, recognizing negative biases, handling intense emotions, moving past procrastination and avoidance, developing confidence, and consolidating gains over the long term. Readers are encouraged to keep a training journal as they work through the book, and free worksheets available for download online are referenced as well. An explanation of basic brain hardware and functions forms the introductory lesson, and the first exercise asks readers to imagine who they might be without anxiety in order to motivate them to do the work required of them in the training program. Chapters begin with a scenario in which two teens face the same situation and react differently--one with anxiety, one without. After an analysis of the real effects of the anxious symptoms, related exercises aim to decrease the power of these behaviors. The scenarios are realistic and relatable, and the analyses are logical and clear. The exercises are straightforward, though some require determination to implement, as when readers are asked to conjure physical symptoms intentionally. Readers will learn how symptoms of anxiety stem from useful bodily responses gone awry as well as many useful thoughts and actions to interrupt their anxiety. Practical, challenging, informative--positively worthwhile. (references) (Nonfiction. 14-18)

    Gr 9 Up-There are many books about teen anxiety, but this guide is approachable, informative, and empowering. The authors take on the role of coaches, and the book is designed as a "mind gym," with 10 chapters filled with exercises for rewiring the brain to move past anxiety and emotional pain, end self-recrimination, defeat procrastination, and be more present, confident, and resilient. The authors clearly know their audience. There is an effective mix of neuroscience, relatable examples of teens responding to emotional discomfort, and an array of tools, including online worksheets. VERDICT Although some readers may show resistance to doing the actual work offered in this book, the strategies, offered by seasoned professionals, suggest new perspectives on anxiety not only for teens but for stressed parents who might pick it up.-Marisa Januzzi, Northern Valley Regional High School, NJ
