Sendes vanligvis innen 7-15 dager
"What is mental health?" Scott Shannon explores the fundamental question, showing that an innate desire for balance - a wholeness - between brain-body-mind lies at the heart of wellness. Such a balance can't be achieved by medication alone, but requires a broad, full-spectrum understanding of children's lives: their diet, social skills, sleep habits, their ability to self-regulate, to find meaning and purpose in life, and their family relationships. Stress, trauma and poor nutrition are some of the most common barriers to wholeness in children's' lives and Shannon carefully examines these and other barriers and what the latest discoveries in neuroplasticity and epigenetics tell us about their ability to overcome them. Readers will learn how to perform a different sort of assessment - one that identifies patterns of imbalance and obstacles to health in a child's life - as well as how to build a meaningful, effective treatment plan around these deficits, and how clinicians can best position themselves to respond effectively.
