This book opens the doors to the world of the imagination from someone who has experienced first hand how to use the guided imagery technique to overcome fear and anxiety and succeeded. This is a great tool for a child and parent and gives practical examples for building images with your own child based on his/her personal experience." —Kasey Massa, LSW, CCLS
