Growing Pains (Hardback)

Mike Shooter


It all begins in childhood. Doctor and psychiatrist Mike Shooter has spent over thirty years listening to patients, especially children and adolescents in crisis, helping them to find their stories and begin to make sense of their lives. Their stories are at the heart of this book. Occasionally strange and troubling, they are also inspirational, funny and illuminating. They open a door to the experience and problems of growing up as never before, sharing the process of children and families as, through therapy, they confront everything from loss or illness to destructive, even violent, behaviour. A passionate believer in the importance of listening rather than labeling, Mike Shooter draws on his breadth of experience - in surgery and therapy as well as his own battle with depression - to help us see how breakthroughs can be made and why we won't always get it right. Compelling and compassionate, this is a book to make us wiser and braver, and help children's stories find happier endings.
