'This book should be on the shelf of every professional that works with teenagers in ANY setting. As lives become increasingly busy and hectic, emotional health and literacy is often overlooked.

'This book provides a thorough description of emotional literacy... I recommend following the structure, as it builds up skills and understanding in a logical order, although there is still scope to dip into the programme to address specific issues as required.'
