How many times have you pushed away a painful emotion, like sadness, grief or anger? Accepting life’s difficult feelings is a struggle for many of us, especially children. But with the right guidance and practice, emotional acceptance can become a habit that provides lifelong mental health benefits. This interactive workbook is filled with over 100 pages of interventions and activities designed to help kids understand and sit with their feelings — even the most uncomfortable ones. Written by child and adolescent mental health therapist Lauren Stockly with illustrations by celebrated artist Ellen Surrey, the “Mindful Monsters Therapeutic Workbook” is designed for use on its own, or as an interactive and enriching compliment to the therapeutic children’s book “Be Mindful of Monsters.” Designed with therapists in mind, this workbook incorporates a range of therapeutic modalities and concepts that can be personalized to meet the unique needs of each individual child. Many of the activities in this book are also easily adaptable for home and classroom settings, making it an ideal companion for teachers and parents as well.
