“This toolkit is a creative, thoughtful and intelligently written gem for everyone navigating our increasingly complex world. It is refreshing to see such a book full of practical strategies grounded in theory and evidence yet shared in an insightful and simplistic way. This book should be on every child, adolescent and adult’s bookshelf as it will without doubt have a positive impact on all those who pick it up and are inspired to use it. Scilla and Jerrin have created a toolkit masterpiece, I couldn’t think of a more important and relevant topic for people today.”

“What an incredible gift you have delivered with this Creative Coping Toolkit. As a personal use tool, or as a conversation starter for families and friends, it’s clear these are the tools we all need to be better — better individuals, better parents and better friends. As Dr. Jerry Bubrick stated, 35% of children will have a diagnosable anxiety disorder by the age of 18. It’s our job to get engaged and start real conversations now. The exercises in this book provide a simple, approachable and thought provoking approach to understanding and being understood. Well done!!”

The Creative Coping Toolkit is a beautifully simple, heartwarming approach to tackling some of the toughest issues we face growing up.  We are taken by the hand and lightly walked through exercises like how to use language or art to express mood, or to effectively engage others in our journey to better connection. The reader is invited to create their own tools, and empowered to share ideas, thus building trust and resilience for future challenges. Scilla and Jerrin will surely touch the lives of many through this easy and accessible path to better mental health.”

The Creative Coping Toolkit is an incredible book — actually it’s much more than a book. It is a resource filled with ideas, suggestions and illustrations. It is written with an openness and thoughtfulness that just lets a reader in to the concept of feeling hopeful and whole, like a warm chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven. The concepts are beautifully illustrated and the pages leave a space for one to use their own creative artistic energy. This is a “must have” toolkit and rightfully belongs in the library of parents/caregivers, teens and young adults, therapists, teachers and physicians.”

“The world is changing fast, technology is everywhere, and politics are... well, politics. Now more than ever, we need to be talking about how we feel. Unfortunately, the things we need to talk most about are rarely the same as the things we want to discuss. Mental heath is important, yet stigmatized. Hard feelings are universal, though taught to be silenced. Scilla, through 10 brilliant exercises, bridges these gaps. She has managed to take unsung realities of everyday life and transform the discussions around them into approachable, manageable, dare I say fun, activities. If you’ve ever felt anxiety, this book is for you. If you’ve ever not known how to ask for help, this book is for you. If you or someone you know is a human on this earth, the Creative Coping Toolkit is a valuable resource you deserve in your life.”
