Illustrated guide to help children and care-givers understand the emotional impact of anxiety, attachment disorders or early trauma.

Emotions can be complicated at the best of times. If something goes wrong right at the beginning of someone's life things can often feel painful and scary. This book will help explain that there are always good reasons why a person feels the way they do. It will help you learn about emotions like anxiety, how you can live with these emotions, and how safe adults can help you build a calm, strong place inside yourself!

This illustrated guide helps build emotional awareness and offers friendly support for children aged 9+ who have attachment disorders, anxiety or are overcoming early trauma. Friendly, age-appropriate language helps work through complex issues in a way which is sensitive to children and parents. This accessible guide is an invaluable tool for anyone supporting children with extreme emotions or attachment issues, including parents and carers, support workers, teachers, and therapists.

Simple language clearly explains in a child-friendly way how trauma and attachment affects you - what it looks like, and how you can build resilience

From the acclaimed author of Help! I've Got an Alarm Bell Going Off in My Head! (9781784502270)

Attachment disorders most commonly affect children in care, with a record high of 72,000+ children and young people in the social care system in 2017

K.L. Aspden has worked as a therapist with both children and adults since 1998. She has particular interest in the areas of trauma and anxiety, and she has experience working in both mainstream and special schools. K.L. Aspden currently works in a school for children with emotional and behavioural difficulty.

This is a very important and much-needed book that is sure to help many children (as well as grown-ups) understand themselves and others better. It makes complex matters wonderfully simple, and readers will gain insights and resources to last them a lifetime. - Kathrin Stauffer PhD, Body Psychotherapist and Author of Anatomy and Physiology for Psychotherapists.

The book is an invaluable tool for anyone supporting children with extreme emotions or attachment issues, helping them to understand and support children in their care. - Parents In Touch

Straightforward, well explained and friendly, this book will be a huge help to children in understanding and sharing their feelings. - Alan Durant is a prolific writer of children's books including Always and Forever, and Billy Monster's Daymare
