The book identifies the common types of childhood anxiety, explains how anxiety originates, and suggests options for dealing with the problem, with or without a therapist's help. In this updated version, the progression of chapters reflects the authors' clinical program, in which major skills are introduced early and then are consolidated and built upon in later chapters.Throughout, the book employs a step-by-step approach that is both structured and directive. Written activities are incorporated throughout the chapters, some intended for the child and others for his or her parent to complete.
