Austin Family Counseling: Skills for Big Feelings book recommendation of the month

Stephanie from The Social Worker's Bookshelf said: "Wow Whole Child Counseling knocked this one out of the park!!  I am a sucker for group workbooks that have everything you ever need to run a group all set up for you in a beautiful package. I have been using sections of this for individual sessions when teaching feelings but I cannot wait to start a group with this workbook in hand."

Rachel from Bright Futures Counseling said "This book is AWESOME because: 💜 It has a step by step outline for counselors to implement  💜 It has tangible skills kids can practice to relax and self-regulate 💜 It includes resources for the family."

Monique Beglinger, The Mindful Psychologist said Skills for Big Feelings "is comprehensive and I'm running a group next term where I'll definitely be utilising activities from here."
