The Machine Inside Me:

Empowering Children and Teens To Understand Their Emotions and Thinking

Equipping Children & Teens To Manage Today's Challenges

What if children and pre-teens had buttons and switches that would allow them to turn off or tone down emotions such as anger or hurt and turn up love and compassion? That’s the central question author Michelle L. Steffes asks them to consider in “The Machine Inside Me,” a new educational novel designed to build resilience in post-pandemic youth.

Michelle draws on her years of research into complex topics such as resilience, neuroscience, and emotional intelligence, which has fueled her success as a transformative corporate trainer, executive coach, speaker, and author of “Reframe & Rewire: Greatness Through Daily Routine.” She is gifted at breaking down complex material into simple action steps.

Brilliantly illustrated by Rob Rice, “The Machine Inside Me” is a whimsical depiction of the power and plasticity of the human brain. People of all ages can join Michelle as she breaks down the power of positive thinking with exercises and metaphors to make sense of their complex inner workings.
