JACQUELINE GOLDING discusses HEALING STORIES: Picture Books for the Big and Small Changes in a Child’s Life. “Mommy, I’m scared.” Hearing these words can be as fear-inducing for the parent as the situation is for the child. Knowing what to do and say when a child is going through a difficult situation does not necessarily become instinctual once someone has a child. For generations, picture books have been effective parenting tools to ensure children are presented a situation in a manner they can understand. Jacqueline Golding, a psychologist who works with children and an adjunct professor at UCSF, has carefully selected over 500 books essential for any adult looking to help children cope with their growing pains through reading. Annotated with helpful commentary, these titles cover everything from everyday trials to more emotionally stressful events. Jacqueline will offer a range of titles as examples, and will tell a tale or two – bring your questions and curiosity!
