A story about parents who aren't always able to care

ACP member Jenifer Wakelyn has reviewed a new therapeutic story book for children aged between two and six whose parents are struggling with mental health problems.

The review, published in Children and Young People Now, describes how Kit Kitten and the Topsy-Turvy feelings is "a helpful tool for parents and professionals to enable young children to begin to name and talk about their feelings".

Jenifer says the book includes feelings-based activities to build a child's emotional awareness and vocabulary, and guidance about using the book to encourage children to name and differentiate feelings.
