We are excited to announce Dr. Karen Cassiday has published her first book! The No Worries Guide to Raising Your Anxious Child: A Handbook to Help You and Your Anxious Child Thrive is a two-in-one handbook that will help you understand your child’s anxiety and how to ease it, while also showing you how to reconcile your own fears and worries that come with raising an anxious child.
Tips and strategies from evidence-based therapies such as CBT, ACT, and exposure therapy are paired with humorous, thoughtful, and honest anecdotes of Dr. Cassiday’s own life and parenting experiences. Challenging modern cultural pressures to be a ‘perfect parent’ and warning against the trap of over-accommodation, she gives advice on how to embrace imperfection and uncertainty and to build resilience, compassion, and gratitude so that anxiety can take the back seat in your family.
With a focus on acceptance and growth rather than ‘curing’, this book will help you and your child to thrive and find joy even during the worst bouts of anxiety.
