You And Your Anxious Child

One of the world’s foremost experts on anxiety in children provides a guide to recognizing and alleviating a range of debilitating fears.

Anxiety affects more children and teens than any other psychiatric illness, but it’s also the most treatable emotional disorder. Some 25 percent of children and adolescents will suffer an anxiety disorder at several points in their lifetime, resulting in serious problems in their ability to function in school, with peers, and on a general day-to-day basis. A renowned researcher and clinician who has developed groundbreaking, proven coping strategies illuminates a new path to fear-free living for families.

You and Your Anxious Child differentiates between separation anxiety, generalized anxiety, and social phobia, and guides parents on when and how to seek intervention. With moving case studies, such as Jon’s, whose mother quit her job because his separation anxiety compelled her to stay with him full-time, this book elucidates the nightmare that families can be living, and helps them understand that they are not alone. Every step of the way, Albano illustrates proven therapies to manage anxiety issues in children while addressing the emotional needs of parents, too. You and Your Anxious Child brings much-needed hope to families, helping them shape a positive new vision of the future.

From Women's Health contributor and yoga expert Kathryn Budig—the essential, authoritative guide to yoga, for beginners and beyond.

Approximately 16 millions Americans now practice yoga on a regular basis. Devotees can’t rave enough about this ancient art of meditation, breathing, and physical postures that calms the mind and slims the body.

Unlike fitness fads, yoga is worth the hype. The postures stretch and tone lean muscle mass and sculpt a strong and slender physique—burning up to 400 calories in a 90-minute session. But yoga does something even better. It’s proven to reduce the biggest cause of weight gain—stress—which 43% of Americans say makes them overeat.
