Popular Hollywood therapist pens hands-on workbook to help teens and parents tackle anxiety and depression

West Hollywood, CA – November 15, 2022 – After years of the world’s focus on COVID-19, another epidemic is taking hold of teens, young adults, and children – anxiety. The problem is so prevalent that recently, the CDC recommended doctors and health care providers screen children as young as eight for signs of anxiety. For parents and caregivers, knowing the signs of anxiety and knowing how to address the issue can be challenging. My People Patterns, a therapist created online portal for relationship education is making the conversation easier. Along with The m.y.s.e.l.f Workbook and Journal – A 52 Week Guided Reflection Activity For Teens to Combat Anxiety, Build Self Love and Inspire Success, the two resources help address symptoms of anxiety and depression and makes the conversation between parents and teens easier.

The m.y.s.e.l.f Workbook and Journal – A 52 Week Guided Reflection Activity For Teens to Combat Anxiety, Build Self Love and Inspire Success has 52 skills and therapist-approved tools to help teens and young adults seeking anxiety and depression relief. The tools also work towards acknowledging daily gratitude, and improving communication skills. The journal contains weekly ‘deep-dive’ writing prompts aimed at developing insight and self-understanding. This wellness journal provides prompts that encourage self-love, self-esteem, and resilience through introspection and deep thought.

“Dealing with anxiety is tough for teens, and it’s also difficult for parents,” explains m.y.s.e.l.f Workbook and Journal author, Oliver Drakeford, LMFT, CGP. “While the workbook focuses on helping teens tackle their emotions, I want to support the entire family so I created an online course for parents that comes with the book. The course is designed to help parents understand that, with some changes in family dynamics, relationships can become healthier and more supportive for teens.

The m.y.s.e.l.f Workbook and Journal – A 52 Week Guided Reflection Activity For Teens to Combat Anxiety, Build Self Love and Inspire Success is impactful and applicable to teen life. The journal tackles 5 key areas; depression and anxiety relief, social skills, executive functioning, self-esteem, and dialectical behavioral therapy skills. The depression and anxiety relief tools support and promote stress relief, self-soothing and regulation of feelings. The Social skills address active listening and forming connections with peers to help lower teen social anxiety. Motivational quotes and questions promote a growth-oriented mindset that provides a foundation for executive functioning skills. The self-esteem questions and journal prompts for teen girls build self-esteem through self-discovery, and the dialectical behavioral therapy skills are known to be the best evidence-based skills to manage big feelings, making this part of the book essential knowledge.

The m.y.s.e.l.f Workbook and Journal – A 52 Week Guided Reflection Activity For Teens to Combat Anxiety, Build Self Love and Inspire Success can be purchased in hardcover or paperback on Amazon.

The workbook is already proving to be popular with readers consistently giving the book five-star reviews. One reviewer, Lyndsay Mclaren, LPCC, Program Director for Pacific Teen Treatment said “this workbook provides teens, parents, and clinicians with simple tools and techniques to work towards their definition of success through introspection, creative acronyms, and writing. The structured format is the ideal setup for the work I do with my clients and I CANNOT WAIT to put it into practice!”
