Managing Social Anxiety in Children and Young People: Practical Activities for Reducing Stress and Building Self-esteem (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Sue Jennings
Managing Social Anxiety in Children and Young People introduces a new approach for working with anxious children and young people to help them develop social skills and reduce stress.
Structured around the principles of ‘nurturing and nesting’, the book focuses on a practical approach which strays away from dependency on medicine, but relies on the stimulation of thoughts and feelings during the process of change. It shows readers how shifting perceptions of oneself and others can change a person’s attitude.The chapters feature tangible resources and exercises for developing the core processes of breathing, rhythm, sound, and physical movement in a way that can lead to a reduction of the anxiety and a new awareness of the self. The techniques are clearly laid out in developmental sequences, accompanied by illustrated worksheets and story sheets.
This book will be of interest to teachers, teaching assistants, care workers, clinicians, therapists, parents, and all professionals involved in the support and development of children and young people.
