My name is Dr. Katharina Manassis, M.D., FRCP(C): Author, certified Child Psychiatrist, and Professor Emerita at the University of Toronto. Although retired from practice, I hope to share some of what I have learned on this site. There are tips for parents and posted talks for mental health professionals. My books are accessible to a broad range of readers, though the ones on childhood anxiety, teen depression, and autistic youth are most relevant to parents; the cognitive-behavioral therapy, problem-solving, and case formulation ones are therapist-focused. “Developing Empathy” is important for us all. Enjoy!
This book is by Jessica Kingsley Publishing. It is written for parents of autistic youth, and describes how to help them navigate the challenging developmental transition from high school to adult life. There are further chapters on planning for the long term.
My recent book on empathy is accessible to all interested readers. It is obtainable through Routledge.
