Anxiety and OCD in kids and teens
Natasha Daniels has been an anxiety & OCD therapist for over two decades. She combines both her clinical expertise with her lived experience, raising her own three kids with anxiety and OCD.
I ask Natasha what causes anxiety in children and we discuss ways a parent can respond to and help our children respond to anxiety. We talk about what it takes to see anxiety as separate from the person who feels anxious by personifying it and how that shift empowers kids and teens to 'talk back' to their anxiety.
Join us for a practical discussion that will help you shape your approach to your anxious child and give you tools to love them well as they battle anxiety.
the book summary
Anxiety Sucks, a teen survival guide by Natasha Daniels
Natasha writes a short book directed at teenagers using a consistent metaphor to illustrate
anxiety as separate from the person who feels anxious.
She describes Anxiety as a dictator who is bent on controlling and sabotaging. If a teenager can identify his tactics, take stock of the weapons he or she has to fight the dictator and determine to wage war; he or she can defeat this enemy.
