Mighty Moe

This intervention is an anxiety workbook for children age 5-11, which has been devised to be fun, engaging, and child friendly. The story about Mighty Moe relates directly to the material in the workbook and children work through this with an adult they know and trust. Throughout the book, anxiety is typically referred to simply, as ‘BIG feelings’. This allows for the child to attach their own personal meaning to their experience of anxiety. For some children, anxiety presents as anger or intense sadness. Although the term ‘BIG feelings’ is broad, the adult working alongside the child should help them identify this connection between feeling states, while keeping the focus on the root causes of the child’s anxiety.
