“Identifying and processing emotions can be difficult for children. This book is a wonderful combination of child-friendly psychoeducation, practical tools children can use to understand and better manage emotions, and open space for reflection. I can't wait to utilize this tool with future clients!” —Heather Derix, PsyD, licensed clinical psychologist
“So much of the valuable and necessary therapeutic work happens outside of sessions. This book clearly assists in getting the child started in that process with so many wonderful prompts! I will be recommending this journal regularly!” —Michael Leveque, PsyD, licensed clinical psychologist
“This journal gets a gold star from my 12-year-old daughter who commented ‘I really like the book so far because it shows younger kids that it’s OK to not always feel happy or want to talk about their emotions with a parent. It’s a good and healthy way to keep your emotions in check.’ Helping kids is Dr. Heiden’s passion, and it shines through in this journal. From the fun colors, interesting activities, and different approaches to talking about kids’ mental health, this is a must-have for anyone with kids to tweens.” —Stacey L. Spencer, Ed.D., clinical neuropsychologist
