Book Give Away: Growing Up Brave by Donna Pincus, PhD

Monday, September 10, 2012 Posted by Dina N

As a parent, I am especially excited to present a new book by childhood anxiety expert Dr. Donna Pincus. Growing Up Brave: Expert Strategies for Helping Your Child Overcome Fear, Stress, and Anxiety sounds like a wonderful resource for parents who want to help their kids deal with the complexities of daily life. Growing Up Brave is new from Little, Brown and Company, a division of Hachette Book Group.

Book Description
When our children are born, we do everything we can to make sure they have love, food, clothing, and shelter. We read to them, play with them, and comfort them when they cry. But despite all this, one in five children today suffers from a diagnosed anxiety disorder, and countless others suffer from anxiety that interferes with critical social, academic, and physical development.

Dr. Donna Pincus, nationally recognized childhood anxiety expert, is here to help. In Growing Up Brave, Dr. Pincus helps parents identify and understand anxiety in their children, outlines effective and convenient parenting techniques for reducing anxiety, and shows parents how to promote bravery for long-term confidence. Perhaps your young child has trouble sleeping or separation anxiety, or your teen suffers from social anxiety or panic attacks - whatever the issue, Growing Up Brave can help.

Using methods based on cognitive behavioral therapy, you will learn to identify your child's fear and anxiety on the spectrum from normal and predictable to what might be cause for concern, to promote a secure attachment with your child in only five minutes a day, tools to foster coping skills in the face of anxiety-producing situations, strategies for reinforcing problem-solving behavior, adaptive parenting styles, and much more. Dr. Pincus includes stories from her practice of children - from preschoolers to teens - who have overcome their fear and anxiety through her step-by-step approach, as well as information on therapy and medication.

Whether your child has been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder or simply needs help navigating this increasingly stressful world, Growing Up Brave provides an essential toolkit for instilling happiness and confidence for childhood and beyond.
