Book Signing with local author Amanda Bacon-Davis, author of the children's book, This Thing Has a Name on Saturday, December 17th from 12pm - 2pm!
This Thing Has A Name is a children's book, for all ages, demystifying childhood anxiety. The book demonstrates that feelings can pop-up uninvited and may bring along fear, rage, or confusion - and sometimes make our bodies feel icky. This book walks children and their Loved Ones through the ups and downs of emotions, and to welcome them rather than avoid them. It also describes ways to help recognize those big uncomfortable feelings and help normalize them. There are tools for helping children cope with these emotions by finding safety within themselves and with their Loved Ones.
