Understanding Teenage Anxiety
A Parent's Guide to Improving Your Teen's Mental Health
Jennifer Browne, Cody Buchanan
If you’re the parent of a teenager experiencing chronic anxiety, this book is for you.
Today’s teens are high-strung and socially overextended. We shrug it off as a millennial problem, but is it? In a world that encourages the quick fix, instant gratification, and real-time feedback, can we really expect our children to cope as we did less than two decades ago, in the land of handshakes, eye contact, elbow grease, and grit?
This book is a product of a combination of three very different perspectives: those of the anxious teen, the parent, and the therapist. We need to understand what we’ve created in terms of our current society to gain proper insight on why we’re seeing increasingly rising levels of anxiety in our teenagers. Topics include:
- Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Anxiety
- Teens and Self-Harm
- Anxiety and Gut Health
- Sports: Concussions and Anxiety
- Natural Ways to Help Your Teen Cope
- And much, much more
