Reviews
BOOKLIFE EDITOR'S PICK(Read the full editorial review written by an expert Publishers Weekly reviewer on https: //www.jasmine-loo.com/, or on the 18 Dec 2023 print edition of Publishers Weekly Booklife supplement)"Neurodivergent psychologist Loo debuts with this uplifting compendium of recommendations and techniques for late-identified neurodivergent adults to build healthy relationships, self-acceptance, and more...The tone is warm and inviting, ..[and readers] will find the colorful graphics, diagrams, and journaling opportunities particularly useful; Loo utilizes mind maps to illustrate complex topics, and visuals...[that] are bold, bright, and incredibly helpful... While she writes that the material is meant for those who identified their neurodivergence in adulthood rather than childhood, this handbook will also prove a valuable tool for any neurodivergent or neurotypical reader."
Nurturing Neurodivergence is an essential resource for late-identified neurodivergent individuals, health professionals, or really anyone working with neurodivergent adults. During my early career as a psychologist, although I had an interest in neurodivergent adults and was even working in settings where I assessed and supported many, very few written resources existed. The resources that did exist typically focused on children, ignoring the fact that neurodivergent children eventually become neurodivergent adults (or worse, suggesting that they would "grow out of it"). More so, the idea that there were neurodivergent health professionals who had valuable insights to offer from their lived experience, in addition to their professional training and knowledge, was almost non-existent. In this book, Jasmine explores the many facets of what it means to be neurodivergent, whilst offering realistic strategies and ideas to help neurodivergent adults work with the brain they have - not against it.-Emmalee Stefanatos, Psychologist & Board-Approved Supervisor, Founder of Infinity Psychology & Assessments, BA (Psych), GDipPsych, MEd&DevPsych Navigating a conversation in a foreign language is tough. Navigating a strange city without a map is tough. Navigating a (largely) neurotypical world is also really tough, especially when you don't speak the language or have the map. If you are a late-identified neurodivergent adult, or even a family member or friend of a late-identified neurodivergent adult, then Nurturing Neurodivergence is the guidebook that you need. Drawing on a wealth of lived experience, clinical training and knowledge, and research literature, Jasmine Loo has created a practical resource to help guide you in understanding your neurodivergence; navigating the complexities of relationships with others; and most importantly, with yourself.-Dr Shane Costello, Adjunct Senior Lecturer at Monash University, Australia, Educational & Developmental Psychologist, Board-Approved Supervisor
