Externalising is a way to objectify problems that are causing difficulties for us. Separating the problem from the person can empower people to eliminate the power of the problem over their lives. In Go Away Mr Worrythoughts Brayden’s life is being affected by constant “worrying” until he decides to take action against “worrying” and stop its influence on his life.
Go Away Mr Worrythoughts is a wonderful example of the effectiveness of the externalising process and makes a great book to read to children illustrating that they have the power to take charge over problems in their life.
