About Magination Press Family 2018-04-06T12:42:36-04:00

Magination Press Family is an initiative that brings together the expertise and resources of the American Psychological Association and its children’s book imprint, Magination Press. Our goal is to provide an authoritative online resource for parents, educators, and other caregivers seeking accessible information about stress and anxiety in children and teens.

Anxiety disorders affect up to 15 percent of children at some point during their formative years. While fear and worries are relatively common, the process of identifying, managing, and understanding persistent anxiety or worry that interferes with your child’s daily activities can be intimidating.

At Magination Press Family: Stress & Anxiety in Kids, you’ll find helpful, reliable guidance from the experts at APA, including trustworthy information about anxiety, as well as a catalog of books published by Magination Press that specifically address stress and anxiety in a kid-friendly manner.
