Summary

"If Your Adolescent Has an Anxiety Disorder is designed for parents of teens who suffer from significant anxiety or who have been diagnosed with a specific anxiety disorder. In this essential guide for parents, the authors bring together two strands of knowledge - that of mental health professionals and parents who have lived through the experience of their own teenager's particular anxiety disorder. Based on the most up-to-date scientific research, this book offers extensive explanations of the four most common and impairing anxiety disorders in adolescents: social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. It provides an in-depth look at the causes, symptoms, treatment, and prevention of each illness, combines both professional advice from a leading psychologist and practical daily-management tips from parents who have faced these disorders in their own children, and discusses treatment options, including how to handle insurance and managed care issues."--BOOK JACKET.
