Totally Chill: My Complete Guide to Staying Cool, authored by Christopher Lynch, PhD, is a practical stress management workbook that supports children in learning and practicing their stress management skills. To help with understanding and motivation, the stress management principles are presented in factual/scientific terms. Appealing to kids, there are motivational opportunities to earn two ice blocks at the end of each chapter. Children, students and clients come to feel that this is "their" book. As the child progresses through the workbook, these ice blocks are used to build a stress management igloo. Each child's stress management igloo will help him or her to withstand sources of stress that inevitably come up in life.
