-Amazon customer

Love using Schab books in therapy! Great asset for therapists and clinicians!! Evidence- based, organized and easy to apply!”

One of the “7 Best Anxiety Workbooks.”

“Teens will find this workbook an excellent source of learning about anxiety and advice for dealing with that anxiety. It is clear and accessible and targeted towards the kinds of concerns and problems that plague teenagers.”

The Anxiety Workbook for Teens, translated into five languages, is recognized around the world as a leading resource for anxiety management skills.  It ranks almost daily as an Amazon “#1 Best Seller” and is recommended on mental health websites for both professionals, parents, and teens.

With a solid base in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), (regularly documented as the most effective therapy for treating anxiety) more than 40 anxiety worksheets teach evidence-based techniques for both managing anxiety and preventing anxiety flare-ups.  Each activity educates readers on a basic concept, offers a teen story to illustrate the concept, and then provides questions designed to integrate the information and personalize it into the readers’ own real-life situations.

Not stopping at CBT, the book also informs readers on managing anxiety through diet, exercise, breathwork, visualization, meditation, time management, problem-solving, and more.  Special worksheets for managing panic attacks and managing phobias are included.

Therapists love this workbook for its easily adaptable worksheet format, but the teen-friendly formula also makes it comfortable for teens to use on their own.  As with most of Lisa Schab’s self-help materials, The Anxiety Workbook strives not only to educate, but to empower its readers.

The Anxiety Workbook for Teens has been listed as recommended reading for managing anxiety on the following sites and more:

Best teen support purchase EVER! This series of teen workbooks is one of the most valuable resources I have found for counseling my at-risk teenage students!  . . . My 6th-12th graders happily and often eagerly engage in the questionnaires and activities in these books! They also have told me that they feel like they really do help. That in and of itself is worth it to me!”

This book is so awesome! I got this for my anxious 13 year-old and it has helped her tremendously! Easy to understand, yet old enough (to) not to seem to babyish to her. Real suggestions she can start implementing right away and more importantly it helped! She is only 1/2 way through the book – I already notice an improvement.”

“Wonderful book to learn how to deal with anxiety!  This helped my daughter really understand why she has anxiety and helped her to learn how to deal with it! One of the best things I could ever buy!!!!

Five stars. “Excellent workbook for therapists working with the teen population struggling with anxiety. The worksheets are targeted for young individuals and are relatable to their age group! My clients have expressed improvement in managing anxiety following their completion of this very informative, easy-to-understand workbook.”

Five stars.  “Really great for teens and preteens alike. I’ve purchased for both my 10 year-old daughter and 13 year-old niece (along with an 18 year-old friend) and ALL of them find it helpful! I enjoy going through it with my daughter and it really encourages parent participation and talking to others.”

Five stars. . . excellent tool for your teen to have.  Our daughter suffers from severe anxiety and panic disorder. This workbook has helped her immensely.”
