Anxiety is defined as a feeling of extreme fear, nervousness, uneasiness or worry of impending doom, or an event of undetermined outcome. However, anxiety is not always a pathological process. The same feeling occurs naturally in association with an intense desire to do something. Every child or teenager experiences some degree of anxiety as part of their normal social and emotional development. Anxiety only becomes a problem when it is prolonged and starts to interfere with the normal expected daily activities of the child or teenager. Normal anxiety responds to comfort and reassurance; this is not true with clinical anxiety. This book is dedicated to all of those parents who have suffered through temper tantrums, mood swings, shouting matches, pouting, and arguments with their children. You have not failed if your child is depressed or anxious. You have just been given a challenge to create an environment which will help your child conquer this anxiety and grow into healthy adults.
This valuable handbook presents clear guidelines for conducting effective treatment procedures for children suffering from anxiety and phobic disorders, allowing clinicians to maintain high standards of care in their practice. The authors adapt key theoretical concepts and findings from ongoing research to develop practical assessment and intervention procedures. In addition, they highlight their 'transfer control' approach and describe its implementation in their exposure-based treatment program. Chapters include several helpful case studies to illustrate how to overcome treatment obstacles.
Philippians 4:5-7 is a study on the subject of anxiety. In its positive form, anxiety motivates us in service and draws us closer to the Lord for strength and peace. At the same time, however, if unchecked, it can also strip us of our joy and destroy us emotionally, spiritually and physically. This study of Philippians 4:5-7 takes a look at what the apostle Paul has to say about this human affliction. Here in these verses the apostle lays out a challenge, provides a solution and tells us of the promise of God for all who will apply the teaching of His word to the problem of anxiety. My prayer is that this study will be a blessing to all who struggle with anxiety.
