I am a mental health social worker. I use this book with clients who struggle with irrational anxious thoughts, and in social environments. The book is full of interactive activities, it helps children identify their body clues associated with anxiety and tips/coping skills that can help them manage during anxiety-proving situations.
The book even has an example of a fear ladder ( exposure therapy).
