A very thorough and detailed practical guide . . . which will be very useful for both therapists working with children with fears and worries, as well as families who are able to use this book as a "self-help" treatment guide. -- Dr Penny Titman, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Great Ormond Street Hospital
