"A very creative, thorough and comprehensive compilation to make CBT appealing to young children, and to enhance rapport and motivation. A valuable resource for therapists, as it provides a range of ideas to engage children in treatment, especially those who are reluctant."

"This volume provides a clear roadmap for clinicians who work with anxious children and utilizes the therapeutic powers of play to augment CBT treatment for this population. Jamie’s story invites children to learn about anxiety through the eyes of a likable character while learning that there is hope for change, while the reproducible handouts for parents invite them deeper into the process and provide psychoeducation that will enhance treatment outcomes. This text will be a welcome addition to the resources of all who work with anxious children."
