Starving the Anxiety Gremlin: A Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Workbook on Anxiety Management for Young People

"The Anxiety Gremlin" loves one thing - to feed on your anxiety and get bigger and bigger, making you more anxious the fuller he gets! How can you stop him? Starve him of his favourite food - your anxiety - and he'll shrink and shrivel away. "Starving the Anxiety Gremlin" is a unique resource to help young people understand and manage their anxiety. Based on cognitive behavioural therapy principles that link thoughts, feelings and behaviours, the techniques help young people to understand why they get anxious and how they can 'starve' their anxiety gremlin.

Covering different types of anxiety such as social anxiety, general anxiety, phobias and performance anxiety, practical tips and engaging activities will help young people stop themselves becoming anxious and manage their anxiety when it occurs. This engaging workbook can be used by young people aged 10+ on their own or with a parent or practitioner. It is an ideal anxiety management resource for those working with young people, including counsellors, teachers, therapists, social workers and youth workers.
