Anxiety is one of the biggest challenges facing people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their families. They can experience anxiety in all areas of their lives ? school, family and social life -- and it compounds the difficulties they already may have with communicating, interacting socially, and controlling their emotions. Managing Anxiety in People with Autism is one of the first books to provide practical information about dealing with anxiety in people with ASD. Drawing on her experience diagnosing and treating anxiety in people with ASD at the treatment center she founded in Sydney, Australia, Dr Chalfant provides clear, understandable explanations of different types of anxiety disorders, how they affect people across the autism spectrum, and what interventions can help. The book teaches parents: ?to know how and when their child is prone to anxiety ?to understand their role in their child's anxious behavior ?to recognize anxious behavior Case studies and research findings help to illustrate the author's points and clarify the causes and symptoms of anxious behavior. Managing Anxiety explains a range of different types of strategies that can help manage and treat anxiety in a variety of settings (school, home, and clinical environments) and take into consideration the different roles people play in a child or adult's life: parent, sibling, teacher, etc. Readers find ways to modify behavior and/ or the environment to indirectly reduce anxiety, as well as interventions, such as medication or psychotherapy, which deal with symptoms directly. The discussion of more formal interventions ? psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and medication ?show how these methods can target specific anxieties. And since anxiety is generally more common in parents and siblings of a child with ASD child, the author also offers ways they too can reduce their symptoms. .
