IntroDUCKtion to Very, Very Big Feelings is an engaging and empowering app for very young children and their parents/caregivers to experience together. Through story, in video and interactive formats, children learn about their feelings and what adults can do to help them when their feelings get too big to handle alone. Separate guide for adults. Bilingual (English and Spanish).



"Dr. Claudia Kohner has created a wonderful app translating ideas from contemporary theory into words and images that will be readily grasped and useable by young children and their caregivers. The app’s basic messages—that emotions are universal and good, that intense emotions felt in isolation can be disruptive and disorganizing, and that we all need attuned responsiveness from others to help with such intense emotions—are invaluable ones."

:: Robert D. Stolorow, Ph.D., Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles

"This app is both consonant with current developmental research and grounded in an essential tenet of childhood emotional health: that only in having our big feelings understood by another can we begin to effectively manage them for ourselves. . . . With her app, Dr. Kohner has given parents, therapists, and teachers an unparalleled tool to help us promote the emotional experience and vocabulary necessary to assure a child's essential mental health."
