July 30, 2015 Digging Deep_Cover_SpanishResonance House is proud to announce the long-awaited publication of Explorando Hondo (ISBN: 978-0-9891039-3-0), the Spanish version of Digging Deep, which began shipping July 30, 2015. Please see Order Page  to learn how to get complimentary copies. It can be ordered through our distributor IPG Books or on Amazon.com.

According to Coauthor Sheri Brisson: “Young, Spanish-speaking patients face a double whammy when they are hospitalized in this country with serious, long-term illness. They have the same fears and worries as English-speaking patients, but they may have a harder time expressing those feelings because of language barriers and cultural differences. Explorando Hondo will help them discover and express their emotions and give them an important sense of control over their own emotional health. This is so critical for their well-being.”

Alan Schroeder M.D., Director of In-patient Pediatrics and Pediatric intensive Care, Valley Medical Center Foundation, San Jose, California said: “We know that journaling can help support a child or teen emotionally during serious or chronic illness and that resources for Spanish-speaking youngsters are harder to find. Explorando Hondo is a world-class resource and one that I’m all for making available to our patients!”
