Meet The Psychologists
Here are the four psychiatrists who helped us so much with the production of Min's Move.
They were instrumental in getting the psychology right of a young child moving abroad. We framed the whole story around the advice they gave us, from how parents should proceed with breaking the news to their children, all the way to decorating their new home and packing their bags for the flight.
You can see their influence on every page of the book. Thank you!
