Written by Martha Davis, Ph.D., Elizabeth Robbins Eshelman, M.S.W., & Matthew McKay, Ph .D. Children pay close attention to their parents' moods. When parents feel upset, their kids may become anxious, and when parents wind down, children also get the chance to relax. When parents feel overwhelmed and stressed, it can be hard to help their child feel balanced. This workbook offers more than fifty activities for families to replace stressful and anxious feelings with feelings of optimism, confidence, and joy. These activities include proven relaxation techniques, including deep breathing, guided imagery, mindfulness, and yoga. Children will also discover how taking time to do art and creative projects can create a sense of fulfillment and calm. Winner of the Medical Self-Care Book Award. Soft cover, 392 pages.
