SHINE is a research lab and does not offer treatment for families. If you are concerned about your child’s well-being, the best place to start is to talk to your local GP.

 

Below is a list of books written for parents describing evidence-based strategies for helping your child overcome anxiety or to behave in a more prosocial and compliant manner. SHINE does not profit from sales of these books.
