What to Do When You're Sad & Lonely: A Guide for Kids

What to Do When You're Sad & Lonely: A Guide for Kids Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All kids feel sad and lonely sometimes. Growing numbers of children are living with depression, a disease often mistaken for sadness. This reassuring book offers strategies and tips kids can use to beat the blues and blahs, get a handle on their feelings, make and keep friends, and enjoy their time alone. The second part focuses on depression, bipolar disorder, grief, and other problems too big for kids to handle on their own, and describes what it’s like to go to counseling. Includes a Note to Grown-ups and a list of resources.

Synopsis:

From upsetting events to a fear of spiders to panic disorders, kids have worries and fears. And now, kids have help — whether they struggle a little or a lot. Drawing on his years of experience helping children deal with anxiety, Dr. James Crist has written a book that kids can turn to when they need advice, reassurance, and ideas to try. He starts by explaining why we have worries and fears, then focuses on the kinds of anxieties kids commonly have: fears after something bad has happened; fears of people, animals, and situations; separation anxiety; and more. He explains each type of fear in detail — what might cause it, how it feels — then offers specific suggestions on how to gain control over negative feelings. Kids learn to relax, use their imaginations, face their fears, change their thoughts and beliefs from negative to positive, and ask for help. Includes a special chapter for parents, references, resources, and a glossary.
