Back to school Tips

David Martin

This is a guest post by Sonia De Pass.  She is an Licensed Professional Counselor - Intern at Martin Counseling. Find out more about her here.

It's back to school time. It's hard to believe that the summer break has gone by already.  Many of us will be hearing the school bells ringing as early as this week! It can be hard to go from sleeping in, summer camps, vacations and just plain hanging out to the fast pace of the school year.  As a therapist, I am seeing a lot of young clients with anxiety about returning to school. I ran across these tips on the PBS website where parents can find help for students struggling  with "back to school jitters".

http://www.pbs.org/parents/education/going-to-school/back-to-school/back-to-school-tips-for-parents/

If you feel your child is in need of extra support, here is a link with back to school tips regarding getting to know your school counselor.

If your student needs to see a therapist, here are some options in our area:

Book review: My Heart Hurts

David Martin

myhearthurts.jpg

My Heart Hurts is a workbook for children and teens who have experienced the death of someone whom they love and who is important to them.

As a grief specialist, Karen Jaggers works with so many heartbroken children who just want to understand what is happening to them. Her greatest hope in creating this workbook, is that this workbook will make a real difference in the lives of grieving families. It facilitates the many questions kids ask during private counseling sessions that they are afraid to talk about with other people.

My Heart Hurts can help a grieving child begin to process the loss of anyone who was important to them, as well as guide adults as to how to begin a dialogue about loss and grief with a grieving child.

Regardless of the type of loss: grandparent, parent, sibling, teacher, friend, or pet, no child should have to figure out how to handle the emotions of grieving all alone. Whether you are a parent, a pastor, a mental-health professional, or a teacher who is also grieving the loss, the best way to provide the unique help children need at such a difficult time isn't always clear.

My Heart Hurts makes it easier. Written by grief specialist Karen Jaggers, MS, NCC, LPC, this workbook provides an effective way to help children and teens when they need it most. And for children who are hurting, getting some extra help can make all the difference.
