CT Holman, author of Treating Emotional Trauma with Chinese Medicine and Shamanism in Chinese Medicine
Rebecca Avern clearly explains the root of emotional imbalances in children and how to effectively diagnose and treat a variety of disease patterns. Rebecca brilliantly shares her vast experience treating children and teenagers in her well organized and insightful text. I highly recommend this book for practitioners and laypeople interested in the subject.

This is a wonderful book, and every parent and every practitioner should have a copy. Rebecca gives us a clear, easy-to-follow guide to anxiety and depression, showing how to recognise the different types, and what to do. Not just medicine, but all aspects of life. How do you get your teenager off their mobile phone? How do you get them to take enough exercise? The different types need different help, and we are shown a way forward. Thank you Rebecca.
