Item Description...
Offers information about psychological therapy told through the journal of a twelve-year-old patient, presenting the most common questions and feelings of a child entering therapy and describing what a session is like.

Publishers Description
Using a journal format, 12-year-old Maya chronicles her emotional ups and downs and describes the process of psychotherapy. She begins by describing a change in her feelings and functioning: a lack of interest in things she used to love, difficulties in school, and problems getting along with her friends and family?none of the problems extreme but serious enough to merit attention and intervention. The problems are portrayed as quite general, in order to reach the widest possible audience. The focus is not about resolving Maya's particular problems but about informing the reader about the process of psychotherapy and its potential usefulness. By the end of the book, Maya is ?feeling better.? She has discovered that changes in her family affected her more than she realized, has become aware of the suppressed feelings that have gnawed away at her, and has learned to deal with them more openly, with the result that she is back to being her old (true) self. For ages 8-14 . Includes a ?Dear Reader? introductory letter to the child, written by a PhD psychologist. De-stigmatizes psychotherapy, portraying it as a tool for ?normal? kids, used by many in a wide range of circumstances; provides basic information about the nuts-and-bolts process of traditional psychotherapy; and prepares kids for the emotional ups and downs of therapy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A valuable addition to a therapist's waiting room or office  May 18, 2006
This is a well crafted book. The author introduces, in language easily understood by pre-teens, a broad range of components found in psychodynamically oriented therapy. My sense is that this book can (and does) increase even a somewhat resistant client's capacity for engaging in the therapeutic process.

One concern of mine is that, because of its thoroughness, the book is somewhat on the long side and, hence, difficult to read from beginning to end. The children who sit in my waiting room, though, are undeterred. On at least one occasion, the book has disappeared, only to reappear a week or two later. Overall, I believe that "Feeling Better", is an excellent investment for the office or waiting room of any child therapist.
A neat book   Jan 12, 2006
This is a great book about a girl who goes to therapy because she's having problems at school and at home. I was nervous and mad to see a therapist but my mom found this book for me. It really helped me feel better about going and my mom liked reading it too! It's hard to find books about things like this, so I'm glad this one was written. Thanks!
Educator's Resource  Jun 12, 2005
As a teacher, I found this book to be a valuable resource to many of my students who receive counseling in or out or school. It is a kid friendly, high interest level book that helps break down the varied thoughts and feelings of children undergoing therapy. I would highly recommend this book to any educator or parent working with a child in crisis.
a worthwhile read  May 16, 2005
This is a subject that can be difficult to write about, but Ms. Rashkin does an excellent job of making visiting a therapist seem like the healthiest choice to make. It is not sugar-coated, nor is it simplistic, but rather brings up all the realistic difficulties and positives of therapy. The author does not talk down to her audience, but clearly and warmly presents a gentle matter of fact approach. This book can really be helpful to those young people considering or are in therapy. Yeah!
