Overview

When a child has experienced sexual abuse, he or she may struggle with low self-esteem and find it difficult to trust others. Though the mental damage from such abuse is significant, it can be substantially reversed if a caring adult is willing to dedicate a few minutes each day to helping the child heal. This book contains forty compassionate activities kids who have suffered abuse can do to raise their self-esteem, establish boundaries, and identify people they can trust.

These simple activities drawn from a variety of therapeutic modalities are best used in combination with counseling to help kids recover from trauma and build confidence. As children work through Finding Sunshine After the Storm, they will learn to deal with painful feelings in positive ways, reach out for support, and feel proud of themselves by taking a bow after important accomplishments. This workbook can help them reclaim the pride, joy, and security they may feel as though they have lost-the sunshine after the storm.

This book is an incredible resource to help kids heal.
