World Book Day: Mental Health Books We Love!

Washington Psychological Wellness celebrates World Book Day by promoting some of our favorite mental health books and resources!

 

Happy World Book Day!

The world has been collectively experiencing trauma a result of COVID-19. We, as mental health practionners are not immune. The past year has affected us like none other and we’re still learning how to deal with the mental and emotional effects not only for ourselves but our clients. 

As mental health professionals, it's important we lean toward each other, colloborate and share as many resources as we can during tiring times. That is exactly why our team at Washington Psychological Wellness put together this list of mental health resources and books we jointly love. 

Here are two books we love:

􀀀 “It Didn’t Start with You” by Mark Wolynn

􀀀 “The Body Keeps Score” by Bessel Can Der Kolk 

For a complete List of Resources Check Out:

       Feel free to use this resource or share it with clients or colleagues! 

       What are some mental health book suggestions to add to our list!?

       We are always looking for more recommendations! 

 

COVID: Helping Children Cope

We are continually inundated with COVID information. Processing this information may be especially difficult for children. Their unresolved fears may present as anxiety both at home and in the context of treatment. A self-help book designed for practitioners and parents who work with children who are struggling with COVID-related fears and uncertainties may be beneficial for mitigating related symptomatology.

"A Kid's Guide to Coronavirus" By Rebecca Growe, MSW, LCSW, and Julia Martin Burch, PhD addresses these issues and is available on Amazon.

Totally Booked: Practitioners’ “Good Reads”

Occasionally, a good book comes along that really resonates with us. Mental health practitioners may enjoy reading about peoples’ lives, struggles, hopes, dreams, achievements, cultures, and values. Consequently, non-fiction, particularly biographies and autobiographies, may appeal to us. These stories may function as a means of escape or a form of entertainment. Perhaps most importantly, these works contribute to our appreciation of human perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Continuing on that note, here are some books that have stood out to me, for one reason or another…

- Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
- A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown
- Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson
