My new book ‘Day by Day: Emotional Wellbeing in Parents of Disabled Children’ is published this week and available here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Day-Emotional-Wellbeing-Disabled-Children/dp/1911383531
I am a parent carer and a counselling psychologist. I have been researching emotional wellbeing in parent carers for the last few years and share what I’ve learnt from parent carers and research more widely in my book.
The wellbeing of parents is often neglected by professionals, society and even parents themselves. I wanted to ensure parents did not feel alone in their difficulties as well as sharing the research, which is often inaccessible, with parents.
The book includes strategies and tips on looking after your emotional wellbeing, based on parent carers’ lived experience. I hope it will be helpful for parents.
