about this book

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.

"Some books are said, in their originality, to 'break the mold.' Trauma Through A Child’s Eyes goes one further: it creates its own mold in a way that everyone concerned with the health and happiness of children will be grateful for."
—Gabor Maté, MD, author of Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers
"A truly remarkable book that captures the essence of what it is to be a traumatized child, while simultaneously helping us understand, appreciate, and facilitate their natural capacity to heal. Written with a deep sense of compassion and wisdom, this book offers clear insight to those who care for and about children."
—John Stewart, PhD, author of Beyond Time Out; clinical director, Maine Medical Center; consultant to public schools, Child Psychiatry Fellowship Faculty
