Help! I've Got an Alarm Bell Going Off in My Head!: How Panic, Anxiety and Stress Affect Your Body
This book explores the science behind our bodies' fight, flight or freeze reactions, including tips and activities to help manage anxiety and keep the nervous system healthy.
The author uses simple cartoons combined with solid information to explain what happens inside our bodies when we feel angry, nervous, stressed or anxious. This straightforward, illustrated guide explores what happens to the brain and nervous system when that alarm bell in our heads starts ringing. It describes how our bodies can become very sensitive and set off false alarms.
The book is targeted for children aged 9-11, and enables those who suffer from anxiety, stress or anger to picture and process their experiences and learn the triggers before the behaviour gets out of control. It helps the reader to understand that it is something that everyone experiences. It also includes ways to manage the stress reaction and reduce feelings of shame. It is an invaluable resource for anyone supporting children who are easily triggered into anxiety or anger, including parents and carers, support workers, teachers, and therapists.
