Common Parenting Issues - Handouts for Professionals working with Children & Families by Cathy Bétoin. Are you a professional who encounters children with a wide range of difficulties? Do you also work with their parents? Would you like a flexible source of information to support you in your work? This CD-ROM resource pack has been designed for you, and will be an invaluable asset to your health centre, children's centre, playgroup, nursery or school. - Each of the handouts deals with one issue in detail. - Topics include sleep, eating, behaviour, language and communication delays, attention deficits, sibling relationships, anxiety, jealousy, depression, bullying, death, divorce and trauma. - Designed as a high-quality leaflet, the handouts can be printed from the CD or photocopied from the book and either made available to individuals, or used to develop an accessible information rack for parents. Covering the full range of issues encountered by parents of children up to the age of sixteen, the leaflets provide clearly written guidance on how to help children with some of the common problems encountered in family life. Suitable for families attending your surgery, family centre, community mental health team, school, nursery, social work, psychology or psychiatry department.
