Andrew the Psychologist – a free children’s book

Initially written for a five year old, this colourful 20-page book helps children understand what a psychologist does, especially if they are going to see one soon. This book is free to download here.

You can use this album to print a hard copy through Snapfish.com.au (if you’re patient enough, 50-70% discount deals come up every now and again). Although I’ve laid one out a photobook in snapfish, they don’t allow me to share that link.

Please note: Although the psychologist featured in this book is male, about 80% of psychologists in Australia are female.

For Counsellors

Some counsellors have said the book largely describes what they do too, so here’s an alternative version titled: “Andrew the Counsellor.” The main difference apart from the colour, is the explanation to parents about counsellors in Australia, how to find a suitably qualified one, and explaining the difference between counsellors and psychologists.
