Worry has a way of growing, shifting from not-a-big-deal to a VERY BIG DEAL in the blink of an eye. This big-deal Worry is tricky, luring children into behaviours that keep the anxiety cycle going. Children often find it hard to fight back against Worry, but not anymore. Outsmarting Worry teaches 9-13 year olds and the adults who care about them a specific set of skills that makes it easier to face - and overcome - worries and fears. Smart, practical, proven techniques are presented in language immediately accessible to children with an emphasis on shifting from knowing to doing, from worried to happy and free.


Market: Young people aged 9-13 years old with excessive levels of anxiety, their parents and the professionals who work with them.

'When children worry, their attempts to feel safe and comfortable only make worry more powerful. Helping anxious children understand and embrace this concept is no small feat. Dawn Huebner's latest book gets the job done, unmasking worry and showing kids-with clarity and playful encouragement-how to put worry in its rightful place.'

- Lynn Lyons, LICSW, coauthor of Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents and Playing with Anxiety: Casey’s Guide for Teens and Kids
