From the Author
The Men in the Head™ were created as a way to explain to my 5-year old son why he had to go to therapy several times a week and his little sister did not. Changing the language from clinical and therapeutic terms to a language a small child could understand, made me realize that we need a lexicon that is easy, approachable and fun.
So, the goal of this work is to create that language for children, parents, therapists, doctors, and educators to illustrate the inner-workings of the brain.
