Innovative ways to assist young anxious children

Campbell, Marilyn A. (2009) Innovative ways to assist young anxious children. In Wilkie, William (Ed.) Sensitivity and Childhood Trauma. Amanda Flynn Foundation, Clear Mountain, Brisbane, pp. 76-88.


Although anxiety disorders have been shown to be one of the most common psychological disorders of childhood, aggressive, acting-out children are more often referred for treatment. This continues to be the case even though anxious distress in children affects both social adjustment and academic performance and has a widespread interference in most areas of their lives. This paper explores the incorporation of play therapy techniques into developmentally appropriate, educationally sound programs which recognise and cater for individual differences.
