St. Clair Shores, MI Clinical Behavioral Health Professional Publishes Children's Book

( My Grandma is Different, a new book by Dr. Cristela Thorne Mitchell, has been released by RoseDog Books.

My Grandma is Different invites young readers and their parents/guardians to engage in difficult conversations about Dementia. The author, Dr. Cristela Thorne Mitchell, is a clinical behavioral health professional with a wide spectrum of experience working with individuals and families. Her work encompassed a variation of age groups (pediatrics to geriatrics). Her personal journey as a mom, and as a daughter of a parent battling with Dementia, prompted her to write this illustrated book as a template to begin a conversation. Dr. Mitchell has observed many young children struggle to express their concerns, fears or feelings about their lack of understanding of certain illnesses and diseases. The intention here is to facilitate a conversation between children and the adults in their lives on the subject.
