Anxiety: The Ultimate Teen Guide (It Happened to Me #59) (Hardcover)
Anxiety is something that millions of people struggle with on a daily basis, and teenagers are no exception. By some estimates, nearly one in three teenagers have a diagnosable anxiety disorder. Yet many people feel isolated and alone with their experience of anxiety; it can feel like a subject that is off-limits and is often overlooked by parents and friends until it has reached a crisis level. In Anxiety: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Kate Frommer Cik provides valuable information for young adults who are struggling with anxiety, whether it is mild or severe. Cik explores what anxiety is and why we have it, and explains the different types of anxieties, anxiety triggers, coping strategies, and possible paths of treatment. The many personal stories from teenagers shared in this book show that anxiety is not something you have to go through alone, while also revealing how varied anxiety can be from one individual to the next. Their insight into what worked for them delivers helpful firsthand accounts of how relief from anxiety is possible. Drawing upon up-to-date research and interviews, Anxiety: The Ultimate Teen Guide will help young adults better understand why they suffer from anxiety and what they can do to successfully treat it, making this a valuable resource for teens, their family, and friends.
