Restless Children - Coping with ADHD and Anxiety Disorders Using an Integrative and Anthroposophic Approach

Groundbreaking and encouraging for children suffering from ADHD or anxiety issues.

The management of anxiety disorders in children is, from the perspective of many parents, an incredibly challenging task. However, it is essential for the adult caregiver to grasp the concept that worry is, in fact, a natural component of childhood. Every child goes through stages in their development in which they may suffer mild kinds of anxiety. Despite this, there are a great number of children that never grow out of this phase. The child will begin to feel fear, will get more nervous, and may even begin to avoid activities, places, and situations because of their anxieties. One can say that an anxiety condition affects the child because of the way in which they are suffering. The reader of this book will be introduced to a number of beneficial coping skills that will assist them in overcoming the challenges presented by ADHD or anxiety disorders in children.

Dr. Meron Barak, who lectures on integrative medicine at the Technion in Haifa, was born in Israel and finished medical school in 1991. He’s a family doctor who specializes in mental health for children and adults. He trained in Switzerland and Germany in anthroposophical medicine, dynamic psychotherapy, and ADHD diagnosis and treatment. In Harduf and Kiryat Tivon, Israel, Dr. Barak founded the first anthroposophical medicine clinic for acute and chronic disorders. He has been a medical doctor in Waldorf schools and kindergartens for over 27 years, providing workshops on mental health issues for caregivers worldwide.

As outlined in the synopsis, Dr. Barak states that over the past four decades, attention deficit and anxiety disorders have become the most common disorders in school-aged children. Despite this alarming trend, medical and educational systems have yet to solve either disorder. “Restless Children” provides an innovative strategy to help children with ADHD or anxiety issues succeed in school and at home. Dr. Barak's holistic approach merges medicine and anthroposophical pedagogy. His pioneering method presented here in this well-written and researched book is aimed at assisting children who suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or anxiety disorders to thrive in both their academic and family lives.

If you are a parent of a child that suffers from ADHD or anxiety issues or working with children professionally, this excellent resource offers ‘step-by-step solutions to ensure that every child suffering from ADHD or an anxiety disorder is empowered to reach their full potential.’

Groundbreaking, educational and encouraging, this book comes highly recommended. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
