520    ""The most helpful book on childhood anxiety I have ever 
       read."--Michael Thompson, Ph.D.  Whether it's the monster 
       in the closet or the fear that arises from new social 
       situations, school, or sports, anxiety can be especially 
       challenging and maddening for children. And since anxiety 
       has a mind of its own, logic and reassurance often fail, 
       leaving parents increasingly frustrated about how to help.
       Now Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., the author of Playful 
       Parenting, provides a special set of tools to handle 
       childhood anxiety. Offering simple, effective strategies 
       that build connection through fun, play, and empathy, Dr. 
       Cohen helps parents start from a place of warmth, 
       compassion, and understanding    teach children the basics
       of the body's "security system": alert, alarm, assessment,
       and all clear.  promote tolerance of uncertainty and 
       discomfort by finding the balance between outright 
       avoidance and "white-knuckling" through a fear    find 
       lighthearted ways to release tension in the moment, 
       labeling stressful emotions on a child-friendly scale     
       tackle their own anxieties so they can stay calm when a 
       child is distressed    bring children out of their anxious
       thoughts and into their bodies by using relaxation, 
       breathing, writing, drawing, and playful roughhousing     
       With this insightful resource of easy-to-implement 
       solutions and strategies, you and your child can 
       experience the opposite of worry, anxiety, and fear and 
       embrace connection, trust, and joy.  Advance praise for 
       The Opposite of Worry    "If you want to understand your 
       child's anxiety--and your own parental worries--you must 
       read Larry Cohen's brilliant book, The Opposite of Worry. 
       Dr. Cohen is one of the most imaginative and thoughtful 
       psychologists you will ever encounter. He explains how and
       why children become anxious and then shows how we can use 
       empathy and play to help them escape from the terrifying 
       dark corners of childhood."--Michael Thompson, Ph.D.  "The
       Opposite of Worry offers a treasure trove of ideas to help
       children feel confident and secure. Lawrence Cohen has 
       written a book that will help every parent of an anxious 
       child."--Aletha Solter, Ph.D., founder, Aware Parenting, 
       and author of Attachment Play     "Here's the help parents
       of anxious children have been looking for! Dr. Cohen's 
       genius is in the warm and generous spirit of the 
       strategies he outlines for parents. He grounds his playful
       approach in a sound explanation of how anxiety affects 
       children, and how they heal."--Patty Wipfler, founder and 
       program director, Hand in Hand Parenting"--|cProvided by
