Playing with Anxiety: Casey's Guide for Teens and Kids

Casey, the fourteen year old narrator, knows just what it’s like to be miserable. It started slowly: backing away from birthday parties, avoiding the Fourth of July fireworks, leaving before the end of movies. By second grade, stomach aches and tantrums before school seemed as common as strawberry jelly on toast. Then, just before her fourth grade chorus concert—as her mom was braiding her hair—Casey puked. No concert. No post-concert ice cream with her friends. Only a night filled with t

    This book did amazing things for my 9 year old who struggles with OCD and panic/anxiety. We tried medicine and therapy in the beginning and it wasn’t helping much. We decided to start from scratch and form a plan to help her manage on her own. This book was a small part in that plan and helped in a huge way. I haven’t read it myself, but my daughter read it everyday for a week until finishing it. It’s been weeks and she still talks about this book, especially when situations pop up, she will say “Well, Casey says…”, it has really got her talking. I think she loved reading a book that was in the eyes of someone she could relate to and it has really been a good tool in helping her to learn to manage this stuff, especially as young as she is. Thank you for this book! There needs to be more out there like this!

    Definate a Great book , I got the book for my daughter. I had been searching for something to help her through her anxiety for about 3-4 years. Especially during test time when her anxiety levels would get worst. Ever since she got the book and started reading it, I have seen a change in her. She tells me she is able to understand the book and its very funny. Feels more confident , less stressful when facing things especially school work and test. It’s great when you come across a young writter that has and is going through the same things as you. My daughter tells me “Mom, Casey gets me, she understands what I am going through, and she makes me feel that it’s ok to be different, Thanks” . I smile when she said that because she has always thougth she was the only one in th world going through this and no one understood her. As a worry and concerned parent I give thanks that there are books/workbooks like this one that can help my child cope with her anxiety and help her feel normal again. Will highly reccomend this book to any parent that wants to help their child who suffers from minor to heavy anxiety. Thanks Casey for writting and sharing your experiences to relate with young teens.

    Playing with Anxiety lifts a very serious problem into the realm of manageable every day problem solving in a manner that is kid friendly, humorous and very practical. The authors utilize meaningful metaphors, such as understanding flexibility being like a cooked instead of a rigid uncooked spaghetti noodle, to make their points towards identifying useful distinctions without sounding condescending. The step-by-step explanations, as in learning how to expect worry, are punctuated with captivating humor and honesty.

    I have been using this book since it was published, finding it to be thorough, well written and readable, especially in the fact that’s appropriate for both kid and teen audiences, not just younger children. It is a great resource for therapists, parents, kids and teens!
