Description of this Book

Dan is always listening for the sounds of danger. He is listening so hard that sometimes he doesn't hear the people around him. His Mum and his teacher wish he would pay attention! If only they knew how hard Dan was trying and how much he wished his worries would vanish.

This book is designed to be read aloud in the classroom, and then used in conjunction with the exercises included to address mild to moderate anxiety in children. The exercises, aligned with the National Curriculum, will help children identify their worries, find ways to talk about them, and provide strategies for managing them.

This is part one of a two part resource. Part two is a home-based book consisting of another story and exercises for the child's family to work through. The whole resource is founded on principles of cognitive behavioural and narrative therapy and uses home-school scaffolding to support change.
