Wednesday Afternoons with Dr. J is a whimsical illustrated children's narrative that serves to add to the rich history of therapeutic literature by exposing children to basic principles of psychotherapy and the discussion of emotions.

In this story, Ari is a 7-year-old client who begins to see Dr. J, a local psychologist, for psychotherapy regarding recent bullying. Whereas there exists much literature geared towards adult audiences that explains child psychotherapy, Wednesday Afternoons with Dr. J is geared towards explaining the process of psychotherapy to the child client to capitalize on the notion that children can be empowered to safeguard both their physical and mental health.

Dr. Jonathan Haywood Jenkins was born and raised in Natick, Massachusetts where he first fell in love with the Boston Celtics and cookie dough ice cream. After attending the University of Denver Graduate School of Professional Psychology where he specialized in pediatric neurodevelopment and multicultural psychology, he received further specialized clinical training at Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School and at The Help Group where he was the postdoctoral fellow specializing in autism spectrum disorders.
