Book Description

Oct. 15 2005
About 13% or over 6.5 million children and adolescents in the US suffer from serious anxiety, making it the most common emotional problem in youngsters. Anxiety in youngsters is commonly misdiagnosed as attention-deficit disorder (ADD). The good news is that anxiety is the most treatable emotional problem. Success rates with early recognition and proper treatment are excellent! Countless parents, schools and healthcare professionals have come to rely on Worried No More to help youngsters with anxiety reclaim the joys of childhood. In her landmark and highly acclaimed book, Dr. Aureen Wagner brings scientifically proven and time tested cognitive-behavioral strategies into the everyday lives of children and families. Her creative, warm and user-friendly approach appeals to children and adults alike. She identifies the red flags and early warning signs of anxiety, and how to tell normal from problem anxiety. Worried No More is packed with information and valuable step-by-step guidance to help children cope with worry, school refusal, separation anxiety, excessive shyness, panic, disasters and tragedies, phobias, obsessions and compulsions.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL RESOURCE April 3 2006
By Martha Spital - Published on Amazon.com
WORRIED NO MORE by Dr. Aureen Pinto Wagner is a very comprehensive and informative book designed to help parents, school personnel and mental health professionals deal with anxious children and adolescents. The second edition has a completely new look making it even more reader friendly, practical and easy to use. Dr. Wagner uses her vast knowledge of and empathy toward anxious children to provide specific strategies as well as forms and tools for decreasing and managing anxiety. I have found these strategies to be highly effective. I often use her forms and tools when I treat anxious youth (and adults). I highly recommend this book to mental health professionals, school personnel and parents of anxious children.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eye-opening book March 26 2006
By HuskerAZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've ordered several books to better understand my daughter's OCD but since she is not the traditional "hand-washer" the books didn't help. This book does. It explores so many facets of OCD that I didn't see (nor did her psychologist) before. It has helped me look at my daughter's behaviors in a new way and see the disease manifest itself in ways I never thought of before. I would highly recommend this easy-to-read book to anyone who has a child with OCD and/or anxiety problems. It was exactly what I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy for anyone working with anxious children Jan. 21 2006
By Anu C. Patel - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Wagner's expertise comes alive in this practical guidebook for anyone who is trying to help an anxious child get up and over the "worry hill." The techniques are incredibly empowering for children of all ages and I have successfully used her step-by-step guidelines and easy to use forms. The children have really enjoyed the approaches and it has been a moving experience to watch them overcome their worse fears. I highly highly recommend this workbook and you will not be disappointed.

By Dorothy Ann - Published on Amazon.com
My 14 year old daughter has suffered with anxiety (specifically, OCD) since the age of four. This book is possibly the best book on the topic I've ever read, and I've read many. I enthusiastically recommend it to any parent with a child who suffers from anxiety.
