Do you worry all the time? Maybe you’re worried about school, tests, making new friends, or even about what the future holds? The teen years are full of big changes, and it’s normal to worry sometimes. But if you have chronic, difficult-to-control worries, you may have trouble sleeping, paying attention, and even experience physical symptoms like stomachaches and headaches. You need help putting things in perspective.
Written by a Harvard University faculty member and expert in teen anxiety, this is the first book to target chronic, debilitating worry with proven-effective skills to help you alleviate worry symptoms and prevent them from escalating into anxiety. With this book, you’ll uncover the real reasons you worry all the time, stop unhelpful “junk mail” thoughts from taking over, challenge your worries, face your fears, and—most importantly—reach your goals!
If you’re tired of worrying, this friendly guide can help you get your life back.
