Chinese Medicine for Childhood Anxiety and Depression: A Practical Guide for Practitioners and Parents

Tackling mental-emotional health problems in young people from a Chinese medicine perspective, this book shows how a child's mental-emotional health is intrinsically connected with core elements of their everyday life. It suggest an approach to preventing and healing anxiety and depression that involves neither medication nor costs anything.

Part One of the book explains Chinese medicine concepts related to mental-emotional health in a way that is accessible for those with no prior knowledge. It includes chapters on how to recognise a child's Five Element imbalance and how children of each element type need a different kind of nurture and lifestyle in order to remain mentally-emotionally healthy. Each chapter in Part Two examines a particular pillar of mental-emotional health such as connection, family life, emotions, and diet through a Chinese medicine lens. Each chapter is full of practical tips. Throughout, there is an emphasis on guiding parents and practitioners to discern what is right for a particular child, and that each child will need something different.

Addressing childhood anxiety and depression using a unique, accessible, and practical perspective, Chinese Medicine for Childhood Anxiety and Depression is an invaluable book for practitioners and parents alike.
