An essential resource to address anxiety disorders and OCD in children and teenagers, from a prominent researcher and psychologist at Mayo Clinic.
Parenting can be overwhelming when your child is struggling with an anxiety disorder or OCD—but it doesn’t have to be. Anxiety Coach is a step-by-step guide full of useful strategies, techniques, and action plans designed to address all the most common forms of anxiety, including:

  • social anxiety

  • separation anxiety

  • generalized anxiety

  • specific phobias

  • panic attacks

  • OCD

Dr. Whiteside teaches parents what anxiety is and how to recognize when it becomes a problem, explains why children need to face their fears to overcome them, and introduces readers to exposure therapy and its practical application.


Anxiety Coach also covers topics such as:

  • responding effectively to anxious behavior

  • tracking progress

  • keeping an eye out for obstacles

  • deciding when to seek professional help

The advice in Anxiety Coach will guide your child in building confidence so they can participate in the everyday activities they have been avoiding, and offers a detailed roadmap to a happy, healthy, anxiety-free life.
