From the Inside Flap

Childhood traumas range widely in their severity and impact. A car accident, an earthquake or flood, being attacked by a dog, undergoing a frightening medical treatment?all are distinctly different events yet all provoke common symptoms of psychological trauma. These symptoms may include fearfulness, nightmares, and dramatic behavioral or personality changes. And parental anxiety over changes in a child can, in turn, complicate the healing process.Children and Trauma teaches parents and professionals about the effects of such ordeals on children and offers a blueprint for restoring a child's sense of safety and balance. Cynthia Monahon, a child psychologist who specializes in the treatment of psychological trauma, offers hope and reassurance for parents. She suggests straightforward ways to help kids through tough times, and also describes in detail the warning signs that indicate a child needs professional help. Monahon helps adults understand psychological trauma from a child's point of view and explores the ways both parents and professionals can help children heal.

Format: Paperback
Children and Trauma: A Guide for Parents and Professionals is a very informative guide to help us to help our children. I am a Clinical Psychologist who works with children who have experienced trauma in their young lives. This book is well-written and provides information for both the layperson and those who specialize in this field. This book is clearly structured so that one may go to the sections which may be most applicable to the child you are wanting to assist. I highly recommend this book.

Our grandson has PTSD, and this book was extremely helpful in explaining this confusing mental illness and its origins, various manifestations and best ways for us to wrap our minds around it and support him every day. It completely changed our understanding of his symptoms and truly helped us to be more compassionate and to devise more strategies for support.

I thought this book really describes what children go through when they experience a traumatic experience and how they can be helped so they can move forward to a positive future.
The book is also good for an adult who had also experienced trauma in their life as a child or adult.
