More About the Author

Lynne Namka, Ed. D. is a Happy Psychologist in private practice in Tucson, AZ, and an occasional storyteller. Her last three books are about finding and keeping love: Love as a Fine Species of Madness - which is a tear-jerker; the metaphysical fairy tale, Castalia Ever After; and the hysterically funny, feminist fairy tale, The Loathsome Lady: The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnell. Collectively, these three books take a hard-eye look at the wrong kind of loving.

Woven into the fabric of her numerous book and articles are models and metaphors of the science, psychology and the mystical spirit-world. Her writings contain ideas from Native American lore, Sufism, Buddhism and Taoism, with a basic overall Christian approach to becoming a kind, loving person.

The ideas in her popular children's self-help books are based on years of working in programs for children with severe behavior problems. These books include Good Bye Ouchies and Grouchies, Hello Happy Feelings: EFT for Kids of All Ages, Parent's Fight, Parents Make Up and the best selling, The Mad Family Gets Their Mads Out. In addition, she has written several curriculums for therapists, teachers and parents to work with angry children and has a CD for children called Get Your Angries Out, which features anger management techniques.

Her award-wining web site, www.AngriesOut.com, features a write-in advice column for angry children and has over 300 pages of articles on anger management information. Her web site receives 30,000 hits a month. She has also written an inclusive book on anger management called Your Quick Anger Make Over Plus Twenty Other Cutting-Edge Techniques to Release Anger.

Lynne's free weekly newsletter, Inspiration and Transformation is available at www.angriesout.com. Currently, the newsletter has over 3,800 viewers and goes out across the world. In the newsletter, Lynne often writes about love and living in healthy relationships. One of her talents is translating the psychology research into everyday people-language, to provide practical ways of living a healthy life. Her light-hearted writings encourage the readers to be their highest and best self by using positive tools and techniques to work with their emotions. Her extensive research and writing has instilled a constant drive to practice what she "preaches."

Having a mystical bent, Lynne also has a separate practice listed at www.tucsonshaman.com, and takes people on shamanic journeys to accomplish healing.

In a recent interview she said, "I know the ways of the depths of the human heart and our longing for love. As a therapist I work with people who want love but try for it with the weapons of war--the ego and its defense mechanisms which separate us from others. Intimacy is a set of skills to be learned, which happens when we address our deepest fears. I love being a Love Coach! It's part of my job as a healer helping people address their unruly and aggressive feelings and the negative ways of coping with them. Life is a great, grand mystery and we are here to connect with each other in loving relationships. There is a science and an art to creating loving relationships and my writings combine the two with practical advice and some fun."

Over the years I have struggled to explain social conventions and what makes certain behaviors acceptable or unacceptable. Since my 8 yr old reads at a 3rd grade + level, we can read this book together. The perception of kids with autism tends to be very black and white where social interactions are shades.

Specifically, I have had difficulty explaining the difference between joking with somebody and teasing them. Page 28 - Rules of Good Teasing - is a PERFECT CONCRETE guideling of how to joke with a person but not offend them.

Other amazing pages are page 32 - I don't want to - my daughter uses the first complaint "Agggh! This is too hard" multiple times a day. I try to give her support for calming down and giving the unwanted action a try. Some days I am successful, others I am worn out and struggle to offer valuable help. Now I will always have pages 33-36 to pull out and read when my brain is out of steam!

So now for the meat of the book - EFT! I had used EMDR a similar tool to help control my PTSD/Anxiety with great success but never thought of using a tapping method for my child. After years of time outs, quite time, propreceptive sacks, sleeping bags and compression shirts, yoga, classical music, white noise machines, chewing toys (letter P), ice cubes, etc. Now I can teach her a method for calming herself that she can take everywhere and use completely descretely.

Very HIGHLY recommended new way to approach helping kids control unwanted outbursts! Thank you Lynne for your great work!

This is probably one of the two best kids' EFT book on the market. I will say there are several references to "someone tried to touch her private parts" in different sections, if that is an issue for you. I didn't like it at first, but then I thought it's ok. There are two pages though, which I don't see why need to be included in a young child's book. Maybe for older kids, maybe as a pullout page (which is exactly what I did- rip them out)- they are NOT bad pages, but they are about overeating for stuffing feelings, and substance abuse basically for numbing feelings. Ummm, my 10 year old doesn't do either of those things nor do I want him to have that in his brain right now. There is enough else going on. Isn't there enough going on with any kid who is learning EFT? What about for a 7 year old? Anyway, you may take a sharpie to the few "touching" references and pull out the 2 pages I did. Maybe the author should do these as a series of cards in a ring binder? Or one book for teens/adolescents, and one for younger kids? Just a thought. But definitely buy this as a guide for reading-age kids who know how or are learning EFT. Also see my review on "Tap Into Joy"- another awesome EFT book for kids.

Not a book for children to read but more of a reference book for parents to help children of all ages with problems/issues. Excellent ideas. Would highly recommend.

I think maybe this book is geared to younger children. My grandson is ten and I think if he took up the tapping method it would lead to more "bullying" and name calling.
