Chuckanut Writers is a collaboration between Village Books and WCC Community and Continuing Education to support writers--at all stages of their writing journey--throughout the year. Together, we offerWriting classes, seminars, and conferences (including the amazing Chuckanut Writers Conference) will inspire and encourage writers at all stages of their writing journey. Check out a few of the classes that are just around the corner listed below. Community & Continuing Education classes are self-supporting and require a minimum number of students to run. Unless they hear from you in time, they may be forced to cancel a class you were planning to take due to low enrollment. Please register early.
Here are the 9 most helpful children’s worry books. Many books on children’s anxiety have been written, but which ones really help? How many of these books are based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method considered to be the most effective in lowering anxiety? Not so many. This article will help you separate the “cute” worry books from the really effective ones that you and your child will use over and over.
For this article I reviewed many children’s anxiety picture books. I was somewhat dismayed that only a few are solidly based on CBT (described below) or any other research-based techniques to reduce worry. The first 5 books listed are rooted in CBT and are highly recommended. The remaining 4 are popular children’s worry picture books that will give your child an opportunity to discuss worry and try out some other strategies. These picture books go up to age 12 years.
To Our Beloved Community,
We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and against injustice and racism. We are encouraged by the many people who are making their voices heard and are advocating for real, substantial change. During times like these, it is up to each of us individually to be responsible for change and to involve ourselves in the conversation. We can find hope in people trying to educate themselves and their children. CLICK HERE to continue reading and for a few different book lists, sorted by age (including links to our website) with titles that can help explain and aid in our education and in our conversation.
