Overview

Understanding child health and wellness through a holistic lens.
Complementing his book for professionals, here Scott Shannon equips parents and caregivers with a better way to understand the mental health challenges their children face, including how cutting-edge scientific concepts like epigenetics and neuroplasticity mean new hope for overcoming them. Readers learn how the most common stressors in kids—inadequate nutrition, unaddressed trauma, learning problems, family relationships, and more—are often at the root of behavioral and emotional issues, and what steps can be taken to restore health and wholeness, without immediately turning to medication.

Editorial Reviews

Edward M. Hallowell
“A tremendously important book . . . wonderfully clear and well written and easy to read and learn from.”
Christiane Northrup
“A profound relief—and a breath of fresh air. Thank you, Dr. Shannon, for such a sound, practical, and effective solution to the overlabeling and overdrugging of today's children.”
Kathi Kemper
“Wonderful, practical, down-to-earth, and easy to read. . . . I will recommend this book with great enthusiasm to my colleagues and patients.”
PsychCentral
“Shannon attempts to keep the diagnostic-labeling fad at bay by highlighting the importance of examining the whole child. . . . As a child and adolescent healthcare provider, I support the way Shannon encourages the public to think about children and their brains in nuanced terms and to take a holistic approach to their well-being. . . . Shannon has written a must-read for parents.”
