When Worry Works Book
As a parent of one teen and one pre-teen, and a sufferer of anxiety disorder, I was intrigued with When Worry Works.
The book provides practical strategies to manage and reduce worry, including cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices, and self-compassion exercises. One of the strengths of this book is its focus on the role of self-awareness in managing worry. The book is so relatable and provides a humorous approach to better understanding ourselves.
When Worry Works book includes numerous exercises and guided meditations to help readers cultivate self-compassion and develop a more compassionate mindset.
With Dr. Dorfman’s book, you can learn to:
Identify your Parenting Anxiety Reaction Types
Take the P.A.R.T. Quiz here. (I learned I am mostly a shepherd)
Manage your emotions rather than be driven by them
Make difficult decisions on behalf of your teen aligned with your values
Detach from anxiety brought on by the pressures of achievement culture
Draw upon your innate strengths as a caring parent
