Emotional Wellbeing in Parent Caregivers
My new book Day by Day: Emotional Wellbeing in Parents of Disabled Children is published on Friday 7th May.
I felt the wellbeing of parent carers was rarely considered by professionals, society or even the parents themselves.
I have been researching emotional wellbeing for the last four years. As a Counselling Psychologist and Parent Carer to my son, I wanted to share what I’ve learnt along the way to:
🌿 ensure no one felt alone in their difficulties
🌿 give voice to the many difficult emotions Parent Carers can experience, often all at the same time. It really is a rollercoaster
🌿 share what other parent carers find useful
🌿 bring the research, which is often inaccessible, to parents
