A practical, hands-on approach to helping children overcome anxiety.
Dr. Donna Pincus is the Director of the Child and Adolescent Fear and Anxiety Treatment Program at Boston University. She has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, 20/20, and more. She lives outside Boston, MA.
"A wonderful book that should be helpful to any family today, especially those with fearful and anxious children (and parents). Dr. Pincus's most useful message is to teach parents to calm down, don't rush the child off to a psychiatrist for meds, don't jump to the conclusion that the child has an attentional or learning problem. Parents are usually the best resource when their child is under stress; Pincus teaches them, in very concrete and specific ways with many instantly recognizable examples, exactly how to provide what the child needs."--Richard O'Connor, PhD, author of Undoing Depression "Pediatricians and parents are concerned about the increasing use of anti-anxiety prescription drugs for children. Growing Up Brave gives children stress-busting skills so they will need less pills. I highly recommend it!"--William Sears, MD, coauthor of The Successful Child "A step-by-step guide to help their children deal with the ever encroaching stress and fears that our disconnected world is creating. Dr. Pincus empowers parents to use simple, scientifically established techniques to guide the development of competent and confident children. Growing Up Brave should be on every parent's bookshelf, especially parents whose children show signs of oversensitivity to everyday life, anxiety, and fearfulness."--John J. Ratey, MD, author of Spark
