Why It's Important to Target Worries

Kids and teens who worry more frequently are more likely to avoid tasks and activities that are uncomfortable for them. Instead, this workbook helps give worriers the skills they need to:

  • Understand worries
  • Recognize that worrying is a normal emotion
  • Understand how the brain impacts our worries and ability to think clearly in times of stress
  • Use relaxation strategies
  • Practice coping strategies
  • Challenge negative thoughts
  • Practice positive self-talk and affirmations
  • Use baby steps to work through fears and worries

Digital and Printable

UPDATED: I've added a link to a google slides version that you can easily access online, send to students, and have them type in their responses. To access, open the PDF with "digital directions" in the title.
