Helping Your Anxious Teen

Positive Parenting Strategies to Help Your Teen Beat Fear, Stress, and Worry

By Sheila Achar Josephs

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Parenting a teen is tough work, but parenting a teen with anxiety is especially challenging. Written by a
psychologist and expert on adolescent anxiety, this essential book will show you how your own behavior can
either help or exacerbate your teen's anxiety, and outlines specific skills you can use to support your teen.

The teen years are a time of remarkable change, and teens who struggle with stress and anxiety can have an especially difficult time. Furthermore, as a parent, you may be so worried and frustrated yourself that your efforts to help your teen cope with anxiety may end up backfiring and make the situation even worse. Wouldn't it help if there was a guide on what to do, and what not to do, to help your anxious teen?

This powerful book, based on cutting-edge research and cognitive behavioral strategies, will help you develop the know-how to effectively manage teen anxiety. You'll learn the best ways to support your teen in overcoming problematic thinking and fears, discover how your reactions can unwittingly fuel your teen's worries, and explore how life changes influence your teen's anxiety, as well as how to manage anxiety-related physical and psychological distress.

Understanding your teen's anxiety, how it impacts you and the rest of the family, and how your own responses can influence it are key to learning how to help your teen manage anxious thoughts and feelings and succeed in life. With Helping Your Anxious Teen, you'll have a wealth of research-backed strategies to lead you in being an effective anxiety coach for your teen.

And Now We Have Everything

Meaghan O'Connell
Authors:
Meaghan O'Connell

Meaghan O'Connell always felt totally alienated by the cutesy, sanctimonious, sentimental tone of most writing about motherhood. After getting accidentally pregnant in her twenties, she realized that the book she needed - a brutally honest, agenda-less take on the emotional and existential impact of motherhood - didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself.And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's brave exploration of transitioning into motherhood as a fledgling young adult. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the second adolescence of a changing postpartum body, the problem of sex post-baby, the weird push to make "mom friends," and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity. Most unforgettably, O'Connell brings us into the delivery room as no writer has before, rendering childbirth in all its feverish gore and glory, and shattering the fantasies of a "magical" or "natural" experience that warp our expectations and erode maternal self-esteem.Channeling fears and anxieties that are, shockingly, still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and intimate motherhood story for our times, about needing to have a baby in order to stop being one yourself.

A New Theory of Teenagers

Christa Santangelo
Authors:
Christa Santangelo

In her decades of practice and academic research, Dr. Christa Santangelo, a psychologist and assistant clinical professor at the University of California-San Francisco, has seen many relationships devastated by the emotional hurricane that teenagers can inflict on a family. Yet Dr. Santangelo also understands how that conflict can be resolved and a new way forward mapped together between parents and teen. In A New Theory of Teenagers, she gives parents the advice, tips, support, and big-picture overview needed to see the teen years as an opportunities for growth and positive relationship changes. With counterintuitive steps (such as "Endure Emotions"), she offers hope and empowerment. Dr. Santangelo asserts that parents have a far greater impact on conflict with their teen than they may realize, metaphorically handing parents back the power to shift the situation to harmony. And, Dr. Santangelo does it with a fresh and multi-dimensional approach to the parent-teen relationship by integrating conventional psychology with alternative methods including yoga and meditation-intended to work on building trust, sitting with and understanding emotions, and seeing room for positivity in the midst of it all.

How to Live Forever

Marc Freedman
Authors:
Marc Freedman

In How to Live Forever, social entrepreneur Marc Freedman argues that we don't need medical or scientific intervention to live forever. Instead of trying to be young, we can live forever (and save money) by being there for those who are young. Investing time with young people, mentoring, and passing wisdom from generation to generation, is truly living one's legacy. For the first time ever, we have more older people than young people, more people over 60 than under 20. In these new demographics we are more dependent than ever as societies on the flourishing of young people. Freedman will show how various innovations around the world are beginning to bring the generations together in ways that are mutually beneficial and suited to the realities of the 21st century. With insights from brain science, human development, and other research, he provides a blueprint for how societies can remain vital even as they age, and how to find great purpose and joy in the second half of life.

Daring to Love

Tamsen Firestone, Robert W. Firestone
Authors:
Tamsen Firestone, Robert W. Firestone

When it comes to finding love, are you standing in your own way? Daring to Love will help you identify the internal barriers that cause you to sabotage your love life, open yourself up to vulnerability, and build the intimate, lasting relationship you truly desire.After a breakup, most of us spend a lot of time thinking long and hard about what the other person did to cause it, rather than reflecting on ourselves. It seems self-evident that we want our romantic relationships to work, and that love and long-term commitment are our ultimate goals. But what if our desire for love is actually not as straightforward as our emotions make us believe? What if, instead of pursuing love, we are unconsciously pushing it away?In Daring to Love, Tamsen and Robert W. Firestone offer techniques based in Robert Firestone's groundbreaking voice therapy-the process of giving spoken word to unhealthy patterns-to help you understand how you are getting in your own way on the quest for true love. Love, the Firestones argue, makes us vulnerable and triggers old defenses we formed in childhood, causing us to sabotage our relationships in myriad subtle-and not-so-subtle-ways. Using the voice therapy strategies in this book, you will be able to identify your own defensive patterns and uncover the destructive messages your critical inner voice is telling you about yourself, your partners, and your relationships.If you're struggling to cultivate lasting relationships, this book can help you embark on your next romantic journey with more openness and self-knowledge.
