Love In, Love Out: A Compassionate Approach to Parenting Your Anxious Child Audiobook

Love In, Love Out: A Compassionate Approach to Parenting Your Anxious Child

Author: Dr Malie Coyne Narrator: Aoife Mcmahon Release Date: July 2020

An indispensable guide helping parents to understand and recognise various forms of anxiety and how to empower their children in developing adaptive coping strategies. An indispensable guide that empowers parents to understand and recognise anxiety in their children, and to help them to develop strategies to manage it together. Parents hold the key to helping their children with the strains of our always-on world. Love In, Love Out helps parents to step back and learn to understand the anxiety that an increasing number of children experience at one time or another. In her book, Clinical Psychologist, National University of Ireland Lecturer, A Lust for Life Mental Health Advisor and mother of two, Dr Malie Coyne sets out to help parents to help their anxious children. Drawing from key psychological theories (attachment theory, cognitive behavioural therapy and compassion-focused therapy), and real-life case studies, Coyne translates her knowledge and experience into practical advice for busy families and stressed-out parents. As parents learn to become the 'emotional anchor' from which their child can learn to trust and begin to explore their world, they will find the balance between helping their anxious children feel safe and encouraging them to face their fears as they grow and develop. Filled with hands-on activities and centred on a compassionate, kind approach to children and their parents, Love In, Love Out will become a bedside bible for parents of children of any age, helping them to negotiate the many bumps in the road to managing their anxiety.

The Island Child Audiobook

The Island Child

Author: Molly Aitken Narrator: Aoife Mcmahon Release Date: January 2020

Twenty years ago, Oona left the island of Inis for the very first time. A wind-blasted rock of fishing boats and turf fires, where girls stayed in their homes until they became mothers themselves, the island was a gift for some, a prison for others. Oona was barely more than a girl, but promised herself she would leave the tall tales behind and never return. The Island Child tells two stories: of the girl who grew up watching births and betrayals, storms and secrets, and of the adult Oona, desperate to find a second chance, only to discover she can never completely escape. As the strands of Oona's life come together, in blood and marriage and motherhood, she must accept the price we pay when we love what is never truly ours . . . Rich, haunting and rooted in Irish folklore, The Island Child is a spellbinding debut novel about identity and motherhood, freedom and fate, and the healing power of stories.
