This might just be my new favorite resource for work. I'm a child psychologist, and Skills for BIG Feelings is full of skills to teach kids emotion regulation and coping skills. Casey O'Brien sets up a comprehensive and specific plan to implement in a 12-week group, and she provides everything you need to put it together with minimal extra planning time on the therapist's part. But she also provides resources that can be cherry picked for individual therapy or other types of groups, with flexibi ...more

One thing I could tell right away is that Casey O'Brien Martin is definitely an authority on the subject she chose to write about. Her words, ideas, lessons, and everything in between really have a lot of power behind them. Their validity shine through.

Our young children are the most susceptible and the world today is not easy. This book gives anyone who finds themselves around young children today the tools to help them navigate and balance the world around them and their feelings.

I find this book extremely valuable for teaching, counseling, and parenting. The book is organized, engaging, and easy to read. It’s also a plus that this has so many interactive guide and actual step by step program, it takes all of the guess work out of it. This isn't the kind of self-help that gives you the ideas and tells you to apply them how you see fit, the author actually sets it all out for you in an easy to understand way. Excellent for parents, teachers, administrators and guidance co ...more

The author clearly indicates a strong working knowledge of the inner workings of children who “fly under the radar” because they quietly internalize their anxiety and PTSD. The author uses their own vulnerability through telling her story to reach educators, therapists, and parents/guardians, and provides resources and evidence-based recommendations to create trust and lasting change in children and adolescents.

I think the most important thing about this book is that it’s easy to understand. Oftentimes books about psychological subjects are a bit harder to understand in layman’s terms. As a parent you won’t be an authority on what you are reading, but that is okay because Casey O’Brien Martin is. Important lessons for us as parents. Wholly informative and practical.

Perfect for any teacher or therapist with real life instructions on how to get multiple kids to do simple meditation. As a parent, with an Autistic child, I found this extremely helpful to add some new coping skills to my bag of tricks.
