THE MINDFULNESS AND ACCEPTANCE WORKBOOK FOR TEEN ANXIETY
Activities to Help You Overcome Fears and Worries Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
By Sheri L. Turrell, Christopher McCurry, and Mary Bell. Designed to help teens cope with anxiety, build resilience, and face fears, this workbook is based on the premise that anxiety is a complex response to a combination of social and personal factors. Each engaging chapter includes information and stories along with strategies that address such issues as the triggers of anxiety, mindfulness tips for staying in the moment, and suggestions on how to accept and make a space for anxious thoughts while putting what is important and meaningful first. The activities are grounded in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), which sets out to create psychological flexibility—the ability to do what one cares about even when one’s thoughts and feeling suggest it is too hard.
