The book isn't simply something for the child to read, it's workbook. They can keep it can review it later when bad feeling's come back. I would defiantly recommenced this book, if for some bad reason I knew a child who was or had gone through one of these situation.
This is a much needed book for children who have been sexually abused. With delightful illustrations and a simply guided tour, this can be used by an older child by himself or under the guidance of a family members or adult friend. (There are instructions for an adult who uses the book to help a child.)
The author has set up a six-stage program which she identifies this way:
Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insights and Rhythm. There are work sheets for the child to use in learning about their feelings, building self-esteem and optimism, learning the difference between healthy and unhealthy messages, learning skills to soothe the inner-child, how to reveal inner feelings through drawing, breaking free from false shame, cultivating self-care skills and practices, learning about boundaries and bodies, and how to return to the natural rhythm and flow of life.
The author has used simple terms and created easy tools to help any child work through the devastation of sexual abuse.
-Reviewed by American Authors Association member, Marilyn Meredith, a.k.a. F. M. Meredith, author of Kindred Spirits and No Sanctuary
Many children and young adults endure the stigma of being abused by a friend, family member, neighbor, educator or clergyman. All too often they hide their feelings, keep the secret of what happened locked inside hoping that no one will ever find out and promising the perpetrator they would never tell. But, what happens when the floodgates spill over and the truth behind what happened to these children is revealed? What happens when secrets, lies and betrayals become realities and the child decides to come forward? Will anyone believe them? Will they understand or will they be shunned, cast aside and accused of not telling the truth? Repair for Kids is a resource that can be implemented by parents, guidance counselors, psychologists and medical personal qualified to handle these types of situations. The introduction on page 2 leads the way for parents and adults with how to use this resource and beginning helping the child. Repair: Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insight, Rhythm: when defined in more detail we learn that R-ecognition means telling the truth about what happened, E-ntry: making a commitment to work on the program regularly. P-rocess: learning the tools and exercises to make us feel better. A-wareness: finding the puzzle pieces. I-nsight: putting the picture together so we can see that it was not our FAULT in any way.
R-htyhm: Becoming our own person, SPECIAL AND WHOLE. The first question that has to be answered is: DO WE WANT TO BECOME REPAIRED????
As the author continues she defines the word Repair to mean: to put back into good condition after damage.Read more ›
