You Matter - Be Your Own Best Friend is a hands-on, positive book to help children work with 'strong' emotions. 

There's no doubt children are facing extreme stress and uncertainty at the moment. In fact, studies by the University of Melbourne and Deakin University reveal a worrying increase in children's mental health issues.

What can we do to help children cope?

Join Geelong authors, Sue Lawson and Sue Hindle, to chat about helping children recognise and navigate feelings and emotions, and share how to use their beautiful new book, You Matter - Be Your Own Best Friend.

This session is perfect for parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and all adults with young people in their lives.

Sue Lawson writes books for children and young adults. Her books have won the Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature and been short-listed for the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards and the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. This is her latest and 31st book.

Sue Hindle has spent over 25 years practicing and researching wellbeing, energy and sound healing. She runs workshops and private sessions for all ages, and offers school visits to support and nurture staff and students. Sue – a talented singer and music teacher – incorporates her love of singing and music with her wellbeing work which she shares in healthcare, schools and community settings. You Matter – Be Your Own Best Friend is her first book.
