Description

The book invites children living with OCD to go through the story as detectives. The goal is to help them develop skills that may help them manage their symptoms. Dr. Huebner recognized the need for lively, easy-to-read take-home materials to help children practice the strategies they were learning in her office. She created a format effective for 6-12-year olds – the What to Do Guides for Kids - teaching complex psychological concepts using metaphors, language, and humor easily understood by children. Her newest book maintains her distinctive voice while adding a layer of detail and sophistication appreciated by older children and teens. Understand your brain. Try this simple hand model. Start by putting your thumb in the middle of your palm and put your fingers over the top. The fingers represent the most evolved cortex part of your brain, which helps focus attention and gives you insight and empathy. Then lift open your fingers to see the thumb folded in the middle of your palm. That represents the sub-cortical areas below the cortex and includes the limbic and brainstem areas. These areas create our basic drives and emotions. The lower brainstem areas at our wrist affect the regulation of our body. Integration of your brain involves linking the cortex, limbic and brainstem areas, and your body together. If they are not, you’re likely to experience chaos and rigidity. The linking fibers grow with the three pillar practices. Not only can this lead to a reduction in stress, but it can also improve your immune function, reduce inflammation, slow the aging process, and connect your heart with your brain in a more balanced way. This scenario is called a “thought loop,” and though it may seem innocent, it can cause you a lot of despair and grief. Building a toolbox of distractions is a great way to stop thought loops by offering yourself a variety of activities to divert your attention. When you’re drowning in repetitive thinking, turning to these distractions provides an alternative focus that helps break the cycle.

The winner of the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for Activity Books, this interactive book is designed for children and their parents. Call 1-800- SUICIDE ( 1-800-784-2433) anytime if you are concerned about someone who may be considering suicide While chapter two of the book does include the hand-washing example—because it's so classic most likely—the graphic images and thought bubbles throughout the book show characters grappling with what-if questions, always/never limitations, pressures in the form of "I better do..." or "I need to...," as well as "should/must/ought" phrasing. This toolbox can include activities you enjoy, like reading, solving puzzles, crafting, or listening to music. Adding sensory experiences can be very calming as well. You can try stress balls, fidgets, soft blankets, and more.

Certain personality features also may predispose you to being haunted by a catchy tune. If you are obsessive-compulsive, neurotic (anxious, self-conscious, and vulnerable), or if you are someone who is typically open to new experiences, you may be more likely to fall prey to an earworm. Why might earworms be good for you? Behaving anxiously activates the stress response. Because of the many changes the stress response brings about, stress responses stress the body, and especially the nervous system, which includes the brain. Dawn Huebner, PhD, is a Clinical Psychologist specializing in the treatment of anxious children and their parents. She is the author of 9 books, including the bestselling What to Do When You Worry Too Much and more recent, Outsmarting Worry. Dr. Huebner’s books sell briskly around the world, and have been translated into 23 languages. She has been featured on the TODAY Show, CNN.com, WebMD and many other news and information outlets, and is frequently interviewed by popular parenting magazines. Dr. Huebner’s TEDx talk on Rethinking Anxiety has been viewed over 700,000 times.

The child or youth is experiencing sensations that aren’t real and/or beliefs that can’t possibly be trueA Gold NAPPA (National Parenting Publications Awards) winner ​ Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for Activity Books (Silver) Did you know that people have brain sorters that keep their brains from getting cluttered with unnecessary thoughts? Sometimes these brain sorters get mixed up, though, and brains get clogged with thoughts that really bother kids. Other techniques found to be helpful include those from cognitive behavioral therapy, such as replacing dysfunctional thoughts like “These earworms indicate I am crazy” with “It is normal to have earworms.” A less intuitive cure for earworms is chewing gum. It interferes with hearing the song in your head. Develop a three-pillar practice. A combination of mindfulness and compassionate training involves three pillars: focusing attention, increasing awareness to be open, and building kind intentions. You can develop all three of these in a single practice called The Wheel of Awareness. Studies have found that practicing these three pillars helps the different structures and functions of the brain to become more integrated. And this integration in the brain helps our regulation and executive functioning, so we can live a life with positive emotions and not be taken over, in a non-regulated way, by painful, chaotic, or rigid states of mind. In every undistracted moment you find your mind replaying the unwanted thought, concept, melody, or song.

Research and Practice

Because this is a common stress- and fatigue-caused symptom, reducing stress, eliminating the body’s stress-response hyperstimulated state, giving the body sufficient rest, and getting good sleep generally eliminates this symptom in time. so your long-term goal should be to reduce your body's stress and deal with your anxiety issues.
