Raising Emotionally Healthy Children explores how parents can help their children reach their potential as emotionally healthy adults.
Drawing on over twenty-five years’ experience of working with children and teenagers, Dr Paul Gilligan provides practical information to parents on strategies to promote good emotional health, complemented by exercises that help parents explore their own approaches to parenting. He also reassures parents of their innate ability to love and do what’s right by their child.
Suitable for parents of children aged thirteen and under, but useful for all parents, this book will also be of interest to teachers, child care workers and mental health workers.
The author’s earnings from sales of this book will be given to the St Patrick’s Mental Health Foundation in support of the Walk in My Shoes campaign that raises funds for services to help people with mental health difficulties in Ireland.
Paul Gilligan is a clinical psychologist and CEO of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, the largest independent provider of mental health care in Ireland. Former CEO of the ISPCC, he is an internationally recognised children’s rights and child protection advocate and a regular contributor to TV, radio and print media
