A Kids Guide to Overcoming Worry & Anxiety (made simple)

Parent Delivered CBT Reduces Kids’ Anxiety (2)




 “A number of studies have shown significant reductions in child anxiety when CBT interventions are delivered via parents, suggesting that a first-line treatment could be delivered via parents.”


British Journal of Psychiatry and Medscape report: 

Parent Delivered CBT Reduces Kids’ Anxiety  


“Full guided parent-delivered CBT is an effective and inexpensive first-line treatment for child anxiety.” 

(British Journal of Psychiatry, December 2013).  


The verdict is in. YOU as a parent can greatly affect your child’s anxiety. YOU, when fully guided by a trained therapist (level of therapist does not determine outcome of results according to the study) can teach your children how to overcome anxiety.


A recent study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry in December 2013 reports: “Childhood anxiety disorders are common, affecting 5-10% of children.As well as disrupting children’s social, emotional and academic development, they present a risk in later life for further psychological disturbance, such as mood disorders and substance misuse.Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is effective and has been recommended as the treatment of choice;however CBT is resource-intensive and is not accessed by many children who could benefit”.

“What will you shine your flashlight on?” 


“Have you ever wondered why your own worries seem to dissipate when you are engaged in something you really love?”  

Maybe you are listening and singing to your favorite song without a care in the world.   

Maybe you are, immersed in a great movie or just sharing a great conversation over a lovely dinner with your family. 

I know for me personally, when I am engaged in family game night with my kids and husband I lose track of time and have not a care in the world. 

There is a reason for this. 

It is not that your worries are not still real or become unimportant. You are simply not focusing on them at that particular moment. This does not make you irresponsible. It just gives your nervous system a little vacation from your worries, which is actually quite helpful (and responsible) to you and your family.
