The ACT Workbook for Kids

Fun Activities to Help You Deal with Worry, Sadness, and Anger Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Tamar D. Black - Russ Harris

A fun and engaging “coping toolkit” to help kids ages 8 to 12 face life’s challenges, manage emotions, and thrive!

Kids today are experiencing alarming rates of mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma. The good news is there are skills they can learn now to gain psychological flexibility, regulate emotions, and cultivate the resilience needed to navigate life’s many storms. This timely and much-needed workbook can help.

In The ACT Workbook for Kids, Tamar D. Black offers fun activities grounded in evidence-based acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help kids deal with worry, sadness, and anger.  The exercises in this workbook are based on the processes of the ACT Kidflex—a simplified version of the ACT Hexaflex—and help kids work through the difficult thoughts and feelings that can arise from anxiety, depression, and stress. The workbook also includes tons of kid-friendly worksheets, crossword and word search puzzles, body-based practices, and arts and crafts that kids can do by themselves or with a parent, counselor, or clinician.

Most importantly, the skills in this workbook will help kids balance their emotions at home, at school, and in other social situations—such as going to parties, being with friends, and extracurricular activities. No matter what the situation, children can use these quick and simple strategies whenever they feel worried, sad, angry, stressed, or are struggling with self-esteem.

In these increasingly challenging times, kids and teens need mental health resources more than ever. With more than 1.6 million copies sold worldwide, Instant Help Books are easy to use, proven-effective, and recommended by therapists.
