Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Clinical psychologist Walker, PhD, whose skills are based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), assists parents in taking a leading role in helping their elementary-aged child overcome anxiety, panic, and obsessions. The author begins by explaining that "children with anxiety disorders often function well in terms of grades, achievement, and more, yet live a tortured internal life rife with worry, fear, or excessive guilt or feelings of responsibility." Despite doomsday scenarios never coming to realization, children with anxiety are often unable to take away from the situation positive solutions and therefore must learn to identify negative thinking, work to change those thoughts, and then modify specific behaviors. VERDICT Although the sample dialogue feels a bit staged, it adeptly illustrates a parent's role. Those with the confidence and consistency to implement the practices introduced here will find Walker's approach useful.—Julia M. Reffner, Richmond, VA --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Bridget Flynn Walker, PhD, is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. Walker received her PhD from the California School of Professional Psychology in 1991. In addition to fellowships at UCLA, Norwalk Hospital, and Kaiser Permanente, Walker completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship with Jeffrey Martin, PhD—an anxiety disorder specialist and professor at UCSF School of Medicine. For the past fifteen years, Walker’s private practice has focused exclusively on assessing and treating children, adolescents, and adults with anxiety disorders, and on training other mental health professionals to do the same using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Walker’s consultation and teaching services are requested by mental health professionals throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and she is frequently asked to educate and guide school professionals in San Francisco and Marin counties. Walker works closely with a team of pediatricians at Golden Gate Pediatrics, and regularly consults with leaders of the San Francisco Psychotherapy Research Group.
 
Foreword writer Michael A. Tompkins, PhD, ABPP, is founding partner of the San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy, Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, and assistant clinical professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He is author of five books, including OCD and Digging Out.
