The Silence Within is different than any other publication available in that it is written for teachers, speech therapists, guidance counselors, and parents by a teacher, in a lesson plan format that is familiar to school personnel. I found in my school system that no one was willing to work with this child, due to lack of knowledge or strategies. School is the very place that the child fears the most and my feeling is that school is where an intervention should take place. The lesson plan format in my book is inviting for school personnel to use on a daily basis as an intervention. The strategies described are based on research and have been approved as a sound approach by several authorities on the subject including Matthew Selekman, a national speaker and author on child anxiety, and Dr. Reiner Bahr, author and practitioner. The strategies incorporate cognitive behavior mod, stimulus fading, and shaping.
The goal in writing the book is to provide useful information and strategies to school personnel, parents and clinicians so that this debilitating condition may be overcome.About the Author:
