    Great books!

    I love this series of books and workbooks for students. As a school counselor, I use these books with students (individuals and groups) and I really find them useful. With all of the pressure kids are under today, there are lots of reasons that this anxiety workbook would be useful to teens. There are great activities in this book that are helpful and useful and provide great conversation starters. The activities in the workbook are so great that you will use them again and again. I highly recommend this workbook and series.
