Anxiety Solutions for Kids


Anxiety Solutions for Kids is a set of 50 cards with simple, practical, creative and fun activities for children who experience worry or anxiety from time to time.
For most people, flashes of worry, nervousness or apprehension happen every now and then. Such experiences serve us very well—they are part of a healthy warning system that develops as we learn from experience. However, sometimes worry can become an unwanted habit and cause all kinds of discomfort. This is when it tips over into anxiety and can become an excruciating and debilitating experience—wreaking havoc in mind, body and soul.
Many children experience anxiety. Whether it is anxiety caused by a particularly challenging circumstance, or generalised, free-floating worry for no apparent reason, this experience can be excruciating.
These cards are based on solution-focussed, strengths-based techniques used by experienced clinical psychologist, Selina Byrne, to help children with worry and anxiety, and to build their wellbeing and resilience. The techniques arise out of solution-focussed, strengths-based approaches, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), brain research, optimism theory, mindfulness practices, interpersonal therapy and behaviour models.
Combined with the delightful illustrations of Katie Jardine, these cards are perfect for 3 -14 year-olds.

Choosing Strengths


Everyone has strengths! Sometimes they are hidden and sometimes they shine like blazing lights. And sometimes, especially when things get tough, we may wonder where our strengths have gone!
We may think of strengths as qualities we inherit (such as patience, resilience or kindness), resources we gather (such as a house, a computer or a car) or skills we learn as we journey through life (such as a profession or other skills and talents such as fixing an engine, growing a garden or casting a fishing line). But we can also think of our strengths as choices we make.
We can choose to see ourselves as a victim or a survivor. We can choose to see the glass half-full or half-empty. We can choose to see ourselves as possessing hopes, dreams and untapped potential or as filled with deficits and problems. We can choose to focus on and practise a particular strength from a huge array of potential strengths. Choosing Strengths is a set of 36 beautifully presented cards.

* Can you choose one or more cards that represent things you find easy or pleasant to do? Which ones show things that have helped in the past? Would you like to try one of them again?
Imagine you woke up tomorrow and your best hopes were realised. Can you see a card that represents the next step you would take?
