An indispensable guide that empowers parents to understand and recognise anxiety in their children, and to help them to develop strategies to manage it together. Parents hold the key to helping their children with the strains of our always-on world.
Love In, Love Out helps parents to step back and learn to understand the anxiety that an increasing number of children experience at one time or another. In her book, Clinical Psychologist, National University of Ireland Lecturer, A Lust for Life Mental Health Advisor and mother of two, Dr Malie Coyne sets out to help parents to help their anxious children. Drawing from key psychological theories (attachment theory, cognitive behavioural therapy and compassion-focused therapy), and real-life case studies, Coyne translates her knowledge and experience into practical advice for busy families and stressed-out parents.
As parents learn to become the 'emotional anchor' from which their child can learn to trust and begin to explore their world, they will find the balance between helping their anxious children feel safe and encouraging them to face their fears as they grow and develop. Filled with hands-on activities and centred on a compassionate, kind approach to children and their parents, Love In, Love Out will become a bedside bible for parents of children of any age, helping them to negotiate the many bumps in the road to managing their anxiety.
