Developed by child psychologist Louise Lightfoot, the Guidebook, Picture book and Draw-along book in this three-part set will help key adults support children with depression. Practical guidance, tools and strategies are supported by a narrative picture book and a draw-along version, which explore the thoughts, feelings and sensations experienced by many children with depression.
