Ignatius is a little too "hugnacious" — in fact, he's been getting into a lot of trouble lately, and even his friends are avoiding him. Finally, he pays a visit to Dr. Pelican, who teaches him new ways to handle his problems in a story that explains psychotherapy to children.

For most children, the first visit to a psychotherapist can be uncomfortable and frightening. Ignatius Finds Help is aimed at assisting children who have been referred with their parents for psychotherapy to have realistic expectations about what might happen during the course of evaluation and treatment. Ideal for parents to read with their children, the lively story and enjoyable illustrations will help children with behavioral difficulties learn to solve their problems while establishing better relationships with family, friends, and peers.
