Scardies Away!

When working with anxious children it is critical to collaborate with staff and parents so that tools taught in counseling are used across settings. The book Scardies Away! by Fiorile and McDonagh teaches "Magic Finger Countdown" as a strategy that can help a child cope with anxiety and panic in all settings. It can be used with any age student. The authors also have a blog that offers suggestions about anxiety. I really like their post about identifying buffers that strengthen resiliency and encouraging physical buffers.
