A fun and practical guide to help you deal with feelings of anxiety, fear, worry, and self-doubt.
Do you ever feel stressed, worried, or anxious about the future? You aren’t alone. From pandemics and natural disasters to school violence and social media overload, today’s teens face an increasingly overwhelming and uncertain world. Add in the daily stress of school and grades, friends and relationships, extracurricular activities, jobs, and planning for college, and there’s plenty to feel anxious about. The good news is that you can manage your fears, live with confidence, and make a positive impact. This book will show you how.
In this friendly guide just for teens, you’ll gain a greater understanding of how uncertainty can trigger feelings of anxiety, fear, worry, and self-doubt. Grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), the book offers ten skills-based tips to help you take “smart risks,” stop avoiding the things that make you feel uneasy, and bounce back from challenges and setbacks. Most importantly, you’ll learn to become more comfortable with uncertainty, and take valued actions toward creating positive change in your life—and the world.
Not knowing what to do, what’s going to happen, and what other people are thinking and feeling can be scary. And as a teen, you’re going through a whole bunch of changes and transitions. Uncertainty is a part of life, but with this book as your guide, you’ll learn to stay cool, calm, and focused on your bright future!
“Finally, a workbook that goes right to the beating heart of anxiety: uncertainty. Teens will be guided, step by step, toward increasing awareness, acceptance, and willingness in the face of the vast variety of uncertain situations they may face. A unique and important contribution to the field and a must-read for teens, parents, and therapists alike.”
—Chris McCurry, PhD, author of Parenting Your Anxious Child with Mindfulness and Acceptance, and coauthor of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Teen Anxiety
“Getting Comfortable with Uncertainty for Teens is a gift to every stressed and anxious teen. The authors offer ten powerful tips to help teens understand, tolerate, and ultimately master the uncertainty that is both a source of suffering and the juice of life. I highly recommend it.”
—Michael A. Tompkins, PhD, ABPP, codirector of the San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy, and author of The Anxiety and Depression Workbook for Teens
