"Ever wonder what feeds ANXIETY in many of our clients and children? Kate Collins-Donnelly takes a unique approach to tackling anxiety in children and teens by pointing the finder at the inner Anxiety Gremlin. The more we feed the gremlin, the more he grows and exerts his power. This workbook is designed to teach practical strategies, based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy principles, for taming and starving the inner beast. One of the best parts of any of the three books in the Gremlin series in the real life stories from others struggling with the same challenges. Winner of School Library Association's Children Choice Winner, this clever workbook is a must have for mental health professionals, educators, therapists, parents or anyone working with or supporting a child struggling with anxiety."
