About this item
Did You Hear That? Help for Children Who Hear Voices is a fully illustrated 85-page children's book about Susie and 4 other children. Susie is a 9 year old who keeps her challenges with auditory and visual hallucinations a secret until a school teacher alerts her parents of her less than optimal functioning at school. With compassion, empathy, love and understanding, Susie's parents encourage her toward seeing a counsellor. Susie builds trust and rapport with her counsellor that finally allows her to share her well-guarded secret. After divulging what had been ailing her for years, with the counselor's help she discovers that she is not the only one on earth that struggles with voices. She proceeds to introduce 4 other children of different ethnicities, ages, backgrounds, talents and interests who have similar struggles with voices. Finally all the children share with readers their personal choices regarding what role they wanted voices to have in their lives (i.e. to keep the voice by managing it, get rid of voice) and how counsellors helped them achieve their individual goals.A beautifully illustrated practical tool for psychologists, psychiatrists and mental health practitioners treating children with auditory and visual hallucinations. Being a user-friendly guide for concerned parents, teachers, paediatricians and allied professionals, it is easy to understand, normalises the experience and assists children in seeking professional help.
