Thinking about our bodies’ functions can be scary, especially for children. Sometimes this awareness grows into Health Anxiety, an intense, unshakeable fear accompanied by hypervigilance about breathing, swallowing, aches, and pains.
Facing Mighty Fears About Health teaches children to manage scary thoughts more effectively. Fun Facts about the body engage children as they practice the 3 steps sure to ease false-alarm fears. A Note to Parents and Caregivers, along with a supplemental Resource Page, make this the perfect guide for families and mental health counselors.
This book is part of the Dr. Dawn’s Mini Books About Mighty Fears series, designed to help children aged 6-10 to tackle their fears and live happier lives.
