101 Ways to Conquer Teen Anxiety: Simple Tips, Techniques and Strategies for Overcoming Anxiety, Worry and Panic Attacks lives up to its title as a straightforward psychological guide firmly grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (the most commonly used anxiety therapy among clinicians). Licensed clinical psychologist Thomas McDonagh and former curriculum developer Jon Patrick Hatcher talks about tough topics ranging from bullying to school anxiety, dating, sex, and popularity. Twenty-first century technology, including social media and texting, are also covered at length. Chapters further emphasize skills useful for preventing anxiety attacks, the importance of redirecting risky behavior, and overcoming spike-and-relapse cycles common to those with anxiety. Although 101 Ways to Conquer Teen Anxiety is written especially for teens, adults with anxiety disorders will also find its insights and recommendations invaluable. A "must" for public and high school library collections.
