How do you raise a happy, resilient child? How can you best support your kids when they struggle? How should you approach their mental health ups and downs?

Dr Beth Mosley is one of the UK’s most experienced and respected consultant clinical psychologists, and she works with children, young people and their families every day. In this evidence-based, realistic and practical guide, she shares the answers to the most commonly asked questions:

- What causes anxiety, and how can I control it?
- How should you broach difficult conversations with your child around subjects such as low mood or even self-harm?
- How can we support each other and communicate better?

Happy Families takes an expert, honest and accessible approach to children’s mental health – arming parents and carers with the tools they need to tackle anxiety, low mood and difficult behaviours, as well as the hope and reassurance to actively make a change, with children from ages 4 right up to 21.

With techniques based on cutting edge science, evidence developed over twenty years of working in the NHS as well as Dr Beth’s own experience as a mother of three, this book will help parents make sense of what their child is going through - and it will also show them how they help their children to not just survive, but to thrive.
