Moving is one of the major stress triggers for children, which is why Child Psychologist, Dr. Lori Attanasio Woodring, released a book last year titled, &ldquo;My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move: A Workbook for Children Moving to a New Home.&rdquo; This award-winning workbook is now available in Spanish, &ldquo;Mi gran mudanza, muy emocionante y un poco aterradora: Libro de ejercicios para ni&ntilde;os que se mudan a un nuevo hogar,&rdquo; to help Hispanic kids as well.</p> <p>The original workbook, designed for children ages 5-11, was a culmination of Dr. Woodring&rsquo;s professional work and personal experience after moving internationally with her family.</p> <p>&ldquo;I wanted to create an interactive tool to guide children through the anxiety and stress of a move. The workbook helps children understand their experience and emotions and empowers them to become active participants in the moving process with a sense of excitement rather than fear.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move: A Workbook for Children Moving to a New Home,&rdquo; became a widely requested resource for real estate agents and military families as well as ex-pats and international schools. However, a resource was desperately needed for families in Spanish speaking homes, which according to recent Census data is over 37 million people. &ldquo;I was thrilled that the English version was so well-received and wanted to extend the reach of this resource to the Spanish speaking population,&rdquo; said Woodring.</p> <p>About the Author:</p> <p>Dr. Lori Attanasio Woodring is a licensed psychologist in New York and Connecticut. She received her BS from Cornell University and her PhD from Fordham University.</p> <p>English Edition &ndash; <strong><a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MOLZNG4/">http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MOLZNG4/</a></strong></p> <p>&ldquo;My Very Exciting, Sorta Scary, Big Move&rdquo;</p> <p>Spanish Edition - <strong><a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692507566">http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692507566</a></strong></p> <p>&ldquo;Mi gran mudanza, muy emocionante y un poco aterradora&rdquo;</p> <p>Contact:<br /> Dr. Lori Attanasio Woodring<br /> Address: 680 Washington blvd., Stamford, CT 06901<br /> Email: drloriwoodring@yahoo.com<br /> Web: <strong><a href="http://movingwithchildren.com/">http://movingwithchildren.com</a></strong></p>
