Anxiety is common in young people and without support can lead to illness and depression. This anxiety and worry kit uses the principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which empowers the individual to make their own decisions and take control. Within the kit there are lots of self-help techniques that young people can use depending on their personal situation and what they are worrying about.
Use the questions on the fans to instigate conversation and discuss what happens when someone is feeling anxious. The fans include questions on: What happens when you are anxious? How do you feel? How do you behave? What do you need to do? Think about your behaviour (including questions about self-harm).
We have provided some 'stay safe' cards in the set for young people to use if they need a 5-minute break during conversations. This means that an individual does not need to feel pressured and they have an escape route if needed. The workbook clearly shows you how to use the question fans. The kit has a CD rom with lots of printable worksheets helping the individual to record their anxiety and identify if it is 'real' or a 'feeling'.
The kit has 4 x 'Option Reminder Fans'. Each petal provides a reminder about a self-help technique and if the young person is worried they can glance at their fan to help them remember things taught within the programme. The kit can be used on a one to one basis or in small groups. If using at home, we also suggest that the kit is shared with school or college. We suggest that the kit is used with young people in KS3,4 and above.
