Booklist Review: "Authors Pedrick (an RN), Hyman (a licensed clinical social worker), and medical student Moriarty provide a succinct and up-to-date overview of anxiety disorders and offer coping strategies and treatment options. This Healthy Living Library series title gives examples to help teens distinguish between an ordinary worry or fear and a clinical anxiety disorder. The book explains how anxiety manifests itself emotionally and describes the physical and behavioral symptoms and related conditions that may occur, such as panic attacks, social phobia, depression, OCD, and PTSD. Treatment options, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), medications, and stress-management techniques are discussed. Sidebars are found throughout, including one featuring celebrities discussing their mental-health issues and coping tactics. Anxiety disorders stemming from social-media use, as well as the ways marginalized populations are affected by anxiety disorders, are mentioned, too. Hotlines are listed within the text, and additional reference material includes a bibliography, source notes, charts and graphs, color photos, and further-reading lists. Teens will find this brief yet wide-ranging and accessible book helpful."
