The Cognitive Behaviour Therapy program Exploring Feelings was designed by Dr Tony Attwood to be highly structured, interesting and successful in encouraging the cognitive control of emotions.

Anxiety can be debilitating for anyone, but it can be especially confusing for a child.

Learning about emotions helps a child recognise the connections between thinking and feeling, and helps them identify the physiological effects anxiety has on the body (sweating, increased heart rate, crying, etc.).

This book provides a guide for parents and caregivers and then the workbook section allows children to identify situations that make them anxious and learn how to perceive the situation differently.

Helpful topics include:

  • Overview of the Exploring Feelings Program
  • Introduction to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • Modifications to Conventional Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • Affective Education
  • Cognitive Restructuring
  • Comic Strip Conversations
  • The Emotional Toolbox
  • Additional Tools for the Toolbox
  • Social Stories
  • Research Evidence on the Effectiveness of Exploring Feelings
