Sam Feels Better Now: An Interactive Story for Children

Published by: Loving Healing Press

Illustrations by: Kevin Scott Collier

“Sam Feels Better Now: An Interactive Story for Children” began as a project for a traumatology course taught by Dr. Greg and Dr. Cathy Brack at Georgia State University. It incorporates elements of trauma therapy, as well as play and expressive therapies to assist children in working through crisis situations, traumatic events, and grief by helping the character, Sam to feel better after his own difficult situation.


“This beautiful little picture book is the

ideal guide for a series of therapy ses-

sions that will focus the child’s atten-

tion on positives and help to deal with

the traumatic memories”

Bob Rich, PhD.

Sam Feels Better Now” provides the child and therapist a safe

metaphor for exploring trauma issues. The story teaches chil-

dren that coming to therapy can be a good thing.”
