Synopsis: Helping young people with anxiety learn to recognise and manage their symptoms, this anxiety survival guide teaches 10 to 21 year olds how they can overcome their biggest worries.
Showing that anxiety is a normal human emotion that many people face, this book helps young people understand the ins and outs of their own anxiety and helps them to challenge the difficult patterns they may get into. Co-written with a college student who has experienced anxiety herself, it is a relatable and straightforward guide. As well as providing tried-and-tested advice and exercises that are proven to reduce feelings of anxiety, it includes recovery stories from young people who have managed their symptoms successfully.
With practical chapters on sleep, exam stress, transitions, and seeking extra help, this is a go-to guide for any tween, teen or young person living with anxiety.
My Thoughts: I requested this book in hopes of get a little bit of insight on anxiety. I think that it gives very good insight on what people who suffer with anxiety go through. I definitely recommend this to anyone, I liked the different coping mechanisms they wrote about in the book, especially where the authors helped readers to create an Anxiety Survival Guide type thing.
I recommend reading this is you suffer from anxiety or know of someone who does.
