Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book should be found in the library of every community and school based clinician working in children services.” (Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapy, 2012)

“As a mental health practitioner I found reading this book extremely helpful in understanding how to apply a framework of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and Webster-Stratton style parenting training into a group programme.” (Young Minds, 1 June 2012)

"Organised as a 10-session parenting-based course, this step-by-step approach to conquering anxieties is easy to read and potentially life-changing." (Family Interest Magazine, 1 August 2011)
