  • The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens: CBT Skills to Overcome Fear, Worry, and Panic

    Jennifer Shannon, Doug Shannon

    eBook (Instant Help, Sept. 1, 2015)
    Do you have problems with anxiety? The Anxiety Survival Guide for Teens is a much-needed, go-to guide to help you finally break free from the worry and ruminations that can get in the way of reaching your goals.If you have anxiety, your fears and worries can keep you from feeling confident and independent. Teen milestones such as making friends, dating, getting good grades, or taking on more mature responsibilities, may seem much more difficult. And if you're like countless other anxious teens, you may even avoid situations that cause you anxiety altogether—leaving you stuck in a cycle of worry and avoidance. So, how can you take control of your anxiety before it takes control of you?Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this book helps you identify your "monkey mind"—the primitive part of the brain where anxious thoughts arise. You’ll also be able to determine if you suffer from generalized anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or separation anxiety. Full of powerful yet simple cartoon illustrations, this book will teach you practical strategies for handling even the toughest situations that previously caused you to feel anxious or worried.If you’re ready to feel more independent, more confident, and be your best, this unique book will show you how.

  • A Teen's Guide to Getting Stuff Done: Discover Your Procrastination Type, Stop Putting Things Off, and Reach Your Goals

    Jennifer Shannon, Doug Shannon

    eBook (Instant Help, Nov. 1, 2017)
    Do you procrastinate? And if so, what’s your procrastination type? In this fun and illustrated guide, author Jennifer Shannon blends acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral strategies to help you recognize your procrastination habits, discover the strengths of your unique procrastination type, and find the motivation you need to meet important deadlines and reach your highest goals.In the midst of modern-day distractions like smartphones, social media, and endless hours of movie and television streaming, it’s no wonder you procrastinate! But despite what you may have heard, procrastination doesn’t make you a bad or lazy person. In fact, procrastination may even work for you sometimes—creating a sense of urgency that can help you focus. But if procrastination doesn’t work for you, it can get in the way of meeting your full potential—in high school, college, your career, and life. So, how can you get things done and be your very best?In A Teen’s Guide to Getting Stuff Done, you’ll discover your procrastination type—warrior, pleaser, perfectionist, or rebel—as well as the unique strengths inherent in each type. If you’re a warrior, you love a good challenge, but may not be able to complete tasks you find uninteresting. If you’re a pleaser, you may be so concerned about disappointing others that you postpone doing something. If you’re a perfectionist, you may put things off because you’re worried about your work being judged by teachers, parents, or peers. And finally, if you’re a rebel, you’re driven by a strong sense of independence. By understanding your type and using the practical strategies laid out in each chapter of this book, you’ll be able to break the cycle of procrastination once and for all.This isn’t a manual on how to please your parents, teachers, professors, or friends. This is a book to help you understand why you procrastinate, whether or not procrastination works for you, and if not, how to improve your work habits and really get things done. By helping you uncover your own unique strengths, this book will help you master your to-do list—and your life!This book has been selected as an Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Book Recommendation—an honor bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties.

But as a Great Dane his owners knew he would be expensive to feed and so they took him to an animal shelter claiming they could not afford to keep him. Although Robert settled in with the other dogs, he secretly longed for a new home. He refused to accept that he was "unwanted", preferring to believe the shelter was a hotel. Robert thought he was one of the cute, cuddly dogs. He couldn't understand why he didn't have his coat brushed nor why he didn't attract as much attention as some of the others. At last, Robert is taken to a new home but it is a far cry from what he had hoped for. It isn't until he is injured that he discovers his true identity.
