Mommy Stayed in Bed This Morning
Rarely do books for children four-eight years old deal with the problem of mental illness in the family. This story follows preschool David as he confronts the trauma of his mother's depression and is helped to resolution. Always viewed through David's eyes, the scenes depict symptoms of depression and therapeutic interventions for children. Readers see David's range of emotions and the many people who help him find the way to happiness and security, including the spiritual dimension.
Mommy Stayed in Bed This Morning helps children recognize their fears and anxieties and then points to ways of discovering health and wholeness. Healing from mental illness is an ongoing process; the book has a realistic but satisfying ending.
"Useful in clinical work with children and families who have parents with chronic mental illness."--Donna Minter, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist
