Dance DilemmaHere’s How To Deal: The Dance Dilemma

Written by Shayna Brody Whitehouse, Eleanor Gil-Kashiwabara and Erika Qualls Laing

This first book in a series offers the story from the perspective of both boys and girls as they navigate the same few weeks of a school year and experience several dilemmas from their own perspectives. Topics include such areas as bullying, cyberbullying, friendships, learning disabilities, divorce, cheating, and honesty. The book also offers a Companion Guide that can be used for discussion throughout the story. It can be utilized as a tool by teachers, parents, counselors, or whomever supports the child. Children/teens can also read the book on their own as a means to help with thoughtful decision making and discussion.

About the Authors

3 Docs PressEleanor, Erika, and Shayna were inspired to create their company 3 Docs Press and their first book Here’s How to Deal: The Dance Dilemma, after realizing that many schools did not have funding for full-time counselors and that teachers often had to address issues that kids faced within the classroom setting. The book gives teachers, other adults and kids ways to problem solve and explore those dilemmas through a story format. The authors collectively have a wide range of clinical experiences.

Eleanor is a Research Associate Professor at Portland State University and has focused her professional work around culturally appropriate mental health service for children and families. She lives in Portland, OR with her family, including two daughters, ages 6 and 12.
Shayna lives with her family, including her two sons (a teen and tween), in the greater Boulder Colorado area. Her professional background is in school psychology , private practice, and as a professor in a school psychology graduate program.

Erika lives in Lafayette, Colorado with her family, including her two sons. Her professional background as a psychologist ranges the age span from very young to geriatrics and she has worked in private practice, group and hospital settings.
