Trauma through a Child's Eyes: Awakening the Ordinary Miracle of Healing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential guide for recognizing, preventing, and healing childhood trauma, from infancy through adolescence—what parents, educators, and health professionals can do.

Trauma can result not only from catastrophic events such as abuse, violence, or loss of loved ones, but from natural disasters and everyday incidents such as auto accidents, medical procedures, divorce, or even falling off a bicycle. At the core of this book is the understanding of how trauma is imprinted on the body, brain, and spirit, resulting in anxiety, nightmares, depression, physical illnesses, addictions, hyperactivity, and aggression. Rich with case studies and hands-on activities, Trauma Through A Child’s Eyes gives insight into children’s innate ability to rebound with the appropriate support, and provides their caregivers with tools to overcome and prevent trauma.

Synopsis:

A step-by-step handbook for helping children to face and overcome trauma is based on the author's Somatic Experiencing method and counsels readers on how to address a range of traumatic sources, from abuse and medical procedures to accidents and stress. Original.
