Summary
  • " Do you have problems with anxiety? The Anxious Teen Survival Guide is a much-needed, go-to guide to help you finally break free from the worry and ruminations that can get in the way of reaching your goals. If you have anxiety, your fears and worries can keep you from feeling confident and independent. Teen milestones such as making friends, dating, getting good grades, or taking on more mature responsibilities, may seem much more difficult. And if you're like countless other anxious teens, you may even avoid situations that cause you anxiety altogether-leaving you stuck in a cycle of worry and avoidance. So, how can you take control of your anxiety before it takes control of you? Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this book helps you identify your "monkey mind"-the primitive part of the brain where anxious thoughts arise. You'll also be able to determine if you suffer from generalized anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or separation anxiety. Full of powerful yet simple cartoon illustrations, this book will teach you practical strategies for handling even the toughest situations that previously caused you to feel anxious or worried. If you're ready to feel more independent, more confident, and be your best, this unique book will show you how"--
  • "For teens, feeling independent is critical for building self-confidence. But for anxious teens, fears, worries, and rumination can stand in the way of achieving the developmental milestones that lead to independence--such as socializing, dating, academic success, or taking on more mature responsibilities. Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens is an engaging, illustrated resource to help teens skillfully work through situations that cause anxiety so they can focus on their goals. By identifying their "monkey mind"--the part of their brain where anxious thoughts arise--teens will start to feel more independent, more confident, and ready to take on the world"--

Review
  • Gr 7 Up — This installment of this series of health self-help guides for teens focuses on using cognitive-behavioral therapy to overcome anxiety. Everyone feels nervous or upset on occasion, says Shannon, but when anxiety negatively affects self-esteem and independence, additional support is needed. This easy-to-read volume helps readers recognize when the "monkey mind," or the primitive, instinctual part of the brain, is doing the thinking and offers advice in overcoming those thoughts. The author's strategies are practical and designed to help teens facing all kinds of anxiety-inducing scenarios. VERDICT While this book isn't necessarily one that teens would self-select from the library shelves, it's a good option as a desk copy for middle and high school counselors.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta --Elaine Baran Black (Reviewed December 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 12, p146)
  • This straightforward self-help book uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help readers grapple with different forms of anxiety. Rather than reduce anxiety to a list of symptoms or disorders, Shannon spends the first few chapters discussing its biological origins; describing the instinct to worry as "the monkey mind," governed by a fight-or-flight response, she covers the thought processes that can perpetuate anxious rumination. Practical activities for acknowledging and reducing such thoughts appear throughout, along with links to online materials, as Shannon explores various types of anxiety in greater detail, including social anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Supportive, specific, and well-articulated advice may ease the minds of readers who seek to better understand their own habits and behavior: "When you respond to monkey chatter by worrying, you are saying, You are right, monkey. This is something I need to worry about. You are giving your monkey a banana—training it to view the imagined threat as a real one." This resource has the potential to both enlighten and empower. Ages 13–up. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed September 7, 2015) (Publishers Weekly, vol 262, issue 36, p)
