About the Book

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Anxious Children offers a complete professional treatment program designed to help children ages nine through twelve who struggle with anxiety. This twelve-session protocol can be used to treat anxious children in group or individual therapy. The poems, stories, session summaries, and home practice activities on the enclosed CD-ROM supplement child therapy sessions and parent meetings to illuminate mindful awareness concepts and practices. In twelve simple sessions, children will learn new ways to relate to anxious thoughts and feelings and develop the ability to respond to life events with greater awareness and confidence.

Help children manage the symptoms of all types of anxiety:

  • Panic disorder
  • Agoraphobia
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social phobia
  • Specific phobias
  • Separation anxiety disorder
  • School refusal

Praise

“Semple and Lee do a very good job integrating CBT with mindfulness-based approaches. Where similarities exist they are pointed out and where differences exist they are made known. Primarily aimed at practitioners, this book could also be a valuable adjunctive textbook in any graduate level psychology, psychiatry, or social work program where child- and family-focused psychotherapy are part of the curriculum. This does represent a new and exciting addition to those treatment paradigms focusing on childhood anxiety that have already received empirical support.”
-Howard A. Paul, PhD, ABPP, FAACP, in a review from the journal, Child & Family Behavior Therapy, June, 2012

“Informed by the authors' years of personal experience and rigorous methodological development, this book provides a treatment manual that is both clinically accessible and supported by empirical clinical trials. . . . Semple and Lee's MBCT-C manual is one of the most detailed, thorough, and eloquently written manuals in the mindfulness intervention armamentarium.”
-Joshua C. Felver, in a review for the journal, Mindfulness, October, 2011
