Anxiety in children is on the rise, and recent research has uncovered a link between highly imaginative children and anxiety. Using engaging illustrations and fun activities based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), one of the most proven-effective and widely used forms of therapy today, this Instant Help workbook presents a unique approach to help children harness the power of their imaginations to reduce anxiety and build self-esteem. Millions of children suffer from anxiety, which can be extremely limiting, causing kids to miss school, opt out of activities with friends, and refuse to speak or participate in a variety of situations. Furthermore, children who are diagnosed with anxiety or brought into therapy often feel embarrassed about not being “normal.” Focusing on the problem of anxiety can stress kids out and make them feel ashamed. But when the focus is on their strengths and their vivid imaginations, children are empowered to face their anxiety head-on. The Anxiety Workbook for Kids is a fun and unique workbook grounded in evidence-based CBT and designed to help children understand their anxious thoughts within a positive framework—a perspective that will allow kids to see themselves as the highly imaginative individuals they are, and actually appreciate the role imagination plays in their anxiety. With this workbook, children will learn that, just as they are capable of envisioning vivid scenarios that fuel their anxiety, they are capable of using their imagination to move away from anxious thoughts and become the boss of their own worries. With engaging CBT-based activities, games, and illustrations—and with a focus on imagination training and developing skills like problem solving, assertiveness, positive thinking, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness—this book will help kids stand up to worry and harness the power of their imagination for good.

Kids may have fewer responsibilities than mom and dad, but childhood can still be one of the most stressful periods in life. The stresses of school, extracurricular activities, and even day-to-day family living can make kids feel overwhelmed and distracted. To make matters worse, children have very little control over the events in their lives, and haven't had as much practice managing stress as adults. In Parenting Your Stressed Child, you'll learn a variety of simple and effective mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) skills that you can teach your child to help him or her stay resilient and calm in the face of stress. This guide includes breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation practices, and visualization and loving-kindness meditations you and your child can do together to handle the ups and downs of everyday life. By modeling these skills and incorporating them into your own life, you can help your child learn the art of resilience, a skill that will stay with your child for a lifetime.

Forget fad diets-here's a proven program based on good sense and good scienceHere are just a few of the bewildering pseudoscientific suggestions found in some of the bestselling diet books: abandon starch; eat all the fat you want, but count protein grams; eat dessert, but no fat; never mix proteins and carbohydrates; customize your diet based on your blood type; forget counting calories; seek emotional solutions to your weight issues. Even books that are based on sound scientific principles generally tell only half the story. The 9 Truths about Weight Loss is the long-awaited antidote to the scores of diet fads that have, in the long run, failed for so many frustrated people. In a program built on years of scientific research and practical experience, Daniel S. Kirschenbaum covers every aspect of losing weight and keeping it off. He shows how attacking weight loss is essentially an athletic challenge and reiterates the necessity of both sensible eating and tracking your food intake. He reminds us that it's natural for our bodies to fight weight loss, and as a psychologist, he shows us how to get through the inevitable emotional roadblocks. Going beyond try quick fixes, The 9 Truths about Weight Loss provides a positive, manageable program for the millions of Americans committed to controlling their weight once and for all.

This breakthrough handbook for mental health professionals and educators offers practical, hands-on information for conducting assessments and providing treatments that take the entire family system into account. Rich with research that shows women are abusive within relationships at rates comparable to men, the book eschews the field's reliance on traditional domestic violence theory and treatment, which favors violence interventions for men and victim services for women and ignores the dynamics of the majority of violent relationships. Thus, the author identifies and measures protocols that help practitioners make accurate assessments for both men and women and then carefully selects the treatment modality and curricula for group, couples, and/or individual work that will help clients break their particular cycle of violence while ensuring victim safety.
