One of the world’s leading experts on the psychology and neuroscience of resilience, Elaine Fox, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Oxford has given her professional opinion on the Sadsville book and its power to change the outlook for children.


She says:


“Depression is maintained, and perhaps even caused, by deeply entrenched negative thinking. Negative thoughts about themselves, the world around them, and the future can capture a child’s mind and drag them into a downward spiral. SADSVILLE helps to break this toxic cycle by getting kids to think about sadness in a unique way, providing them with a platform to challenge the negative gremlins inside their heads and to realise that the gremlins are just that – gremlins- and not a true reflection of reality”


Nice work!
