Item description for Exploring Feelings: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to Manage Anxiety by Tony Attwood...
Winner of a 2008 Teachers' Choice Award! Anxiety can be debilitating for anyone, but it can be especially confusing for a child. Learning about emotions helps children recognize connections between thinking and feeling, and helps them identify the physiological effects of anxiety on the body (sweating, increased heart rate, crying, etc.). This book provides a guide for caregivers and then the workbook section allows children to identify situations that make them anxious and learn how to perceive the situation differently.

Exploring Feelings Dec 12, 2007
This is a fantastic resource for anyone who works with children who struggle to identify their feelings and/or the source of those feelings. I am currently using it with a third grader who demonstrates no concept of "normal" social cues, despite not meeting criteria for an autism spectrum diagnosis.
Exploring Feelings Cognitive Behaviour Therapy To Manage Anger Jan 10, 2007
Great Book. Very practical. Extremely helpful.
Very uninspiring Aug 19, 2005
I was very disappointed in this book and it's brother. The layout of both books is bare and uninspiring with not enough information or help to enable parents to use them easily with their children.
Both books are almost exactly identical too, virtually only differing in substituting the word "anger" for the word "anxiety" in their respective pages, so it would only really be necessary for someone to buy one book if they were considering buying both.
A much better book we found for use with our son, who has Asperger's Syndrome, was Paul Stallard's 'Think Good - Feel Good: a cognitive behaviour therapy workbook for children and young people'.
Bless Tony Attwood! This is a Godsend! Apr 26, 2005
This is another work that deserves a place of honor. Dr. Attwood does a sterling job of helping people with autism/Asperger's (a/A) decode facial expressions and identify and discuss feelings. Asperger's (AS) is a neurobiological condition that affects sensory integration, processing and communication. People on the a/A spectrum lack inuitive knowledge of "being able to adopt viewpoints from another's shoes," so this is something that is cognitively learned. Dr. Attwood does a magnificent job of providing those cognitive teaching tools.
Tony Attwood is one of the leading experts on a/A and his work is one that all people, parents, professionals, educators, people on the spectrum and neurotypical counterparts alike will find useful and invaluable. Hats off to Tony Attwood!
