Throughout the world – and particularly in developed countries – anxiety is one of the problems of modern living. It is not only adults who experience this problem, indeed, anxiety is often evident during periods of rapid change and since childhood is the period during which we develop most rapidly, then a strong case can be made for anxiety being especially prevalent in children.

Originally published in 1984, Anxiety in Children gives a broad discussion, by well-known experts, of the issues of anxiety in children, focusing particularly on what those involved in mental health, paediatrics and educational and clinical psychology, can do to help. This book will still be of interest to all such professionals.
