Drawing on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), this book sets out a clear, enjoyable, step-by-step approach for addressing the sorts of anxieties, fears and phobias that are so common in children and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and related challenges. Using this easy-to-follow model, parents and professionals will have the tools they need to help children and teens cope with and sometimes overcome anxieties caused by everyday occurrences. The book covers seven common scenarios, from fears of environmental sounds and visiting the doctor or dentist, to anxieties around transitions, changes to schedules and an intolerance for making mistakes. The model can be adapted to suit almost any anxiety or phobia and is ideal for use at home, at school and in clinical settings where it can be integrated into a variety of treatment approaches and styles. Designed to help parents of children with autism spectrum disorders and the teachers and therapists who work with them, this book is an excellent resource for successfully alleviating many of the anxieties and phobias that interfere with life enjoyment, not only for the child but for the entire family.

Self-help is big business, but alas not a scienti c business. The estimated 10 billion—that’s with a “b”—spent each year on self-help in the United States is rarely guided by research or monitored by mental health professionals. Instead, marketing and metaphysics triumph. The more outrageous the “miraculous cure” and the “r- olutionary secret,” the better the sales. Of the 3,000 plus self-help books published each year, only a dozen contain controlled research documenting their effectiveness as stand-alone self-help. Of the 20,000 plus psychological and relationship web sites available on the Internet, only a couple hundred meet professional standards for accuracy and balance. Most, in fact, sell a commercial product. Pity the layperson, or for that matter, the practitioner, trying to navigate the self-help morass. We are bombarded with thousands of potential resources and c- tradictory advice. Should we seek wisdom in a self-help book, an online site, a 12-step group, an engaging autobiography, a treatment manual, an inspiring movie, or distance writing? Should we just do it, or just say no? Work toward change or accept what is? Love your inner child or grow out of your Peter Pan? I become confused and discouraged just contemplating the choices.

DescriptionAnxiety's Inner Voice describes how each reader can, like the author, make the journey from panic to emotional self-acceptance. A book for women, written by a woman who has gone through the experience, this life-changing book offers more than self-help. It focuses on a gentle self-acceptance. While conventional treatments for anxiety rely on changing the way you think, this books core message is one of emotional healing. Instead of suppressing or pushing away their feelings, the reader will be shown that emotions are something that they can embrace and learn from in order to achieve lasting peace. More importantly, women will learn how to use their anxiety as an emotional compass to not only heal their particular anxieties, but to thrive in all areas of their lives. About the AuthorClo Nickel is currently pursuing a degree in Psychology and works part-time as a Microbiology Lab Analyst. She enjoys travelling and has just returned home from a trip to Thailand. She lives in beautiful British Colombia, Canada with her husband/soul mate and their two wonderful kids. Clo also enjoys the creative arts and has started a yoga-inspired jewelry line called Inner Voice Beads. She hopes both her book and her jewelry will help women remember the importance of listening to their own inner voice.
