Anxiety is becoming increasingly prevalent in our modern society. Research indicates that the number of people suffering from anxiety disorders is growing. Many trends and forces are at work to contribute to people's feelings of fear and anxiety. Fear and anxiety are experiences familiar to most, but anxiety becomes an acute problem for many.
The Coping with Anxiety Workbook contains assessments and guided self-exploration activities, including an anxiety scale. These tools teach participants to cope more effectively with various forms of anxiety. Each chapter begins with an annotated Table of Contents with notes and examples for the facilitator.
Each chapter contains two primary teaching elements:
The activities are divided into four chapters to help you identify and select assessments for teaching easily and quickly:
Chapter 1: Anxiety Triggers helps participants identify and learn to recognize their anxiety triggers.
Chapter 2: Fear Factor helps participants identify and explore the intensity of their fears.
Chapter 3: Anxiety Symptoms helps participants identify and explore how they experience anxiety symptoms.
Chapter 4: Coping with Anxiety helps participants understand how effectively they are preventing and coping with anxiety in life.
The guided teaching activities are fully reproducible for use with your clients/participants.
This workbook is also available in PDF eBook format, making it simple to store on your computer or mobile device and access with a PDF viewer. The PDF format allows you to easily print copies of the activities and worksheets during therapy and counseling sessions.
