Book Festival: Only as Happy as our Unhappiest Child

Positive social connection shapes a baby's brain from the moment it’s born, developing the resilience needed to thrive and grow. Talking about childhood anxieties plays an important role in building resilience. Join Michelle Jones and Kara Whelan from Craigmillar Books for Babies, research scientist Suzanne Zeedyk and picture book writer Chris Haughton to explore how books can be the gateway to having difficult conversations with children and finding a path to resolution.

 

Chaired by: Dr Stella Chan, Clinical Psychology, University of Edinburgh
