How Jenna Takes Control of Her Emotions and Eating

While supplies last, you save $1.99 (20%) The book is written as a series of e-mails and helps readers relate to the struggles and feelings of the main character, Jenna. It provides information about different strategies that young people can use to cope with their feelings and stress instead of emotional eating; and deals with the real-life issues that overweight children face (their inner struggles as well as difficulties with peers and others). Lynn R. Schechter, PhD, is a licensed psychologist in private practice. She received her undergraduate degree from Cornell University and her doctoral degree from Columbia University. Dr. Schechter has long been interested in issues related to overweight and obesity in children and has provided therapy and behavioral interventions to many overweight children and their families. She was inspired to write My Big Fat Secret when a search to find a children's book to help overweight children yielded no results. She strongly believes that tackling the emotional eating component that contributes to compulsive eating is an essential but often ignored aspect of the complex problem of childhood overweight and obesity. Ages 9-12. 48 pages. 2009
