    Read this book.

    I have attended trainings on children and trauma, taken classes on child development, etc., and none of those experiences compared to the insight I gained from this book. The subject matter wasn't necessarily new to me, but Perry masterfully wove together his experience working with children impacted by trauma/abuse/neglect, with information on neuropsychology, sociology, evidence-based therapies, and more.

    If you work with children, if you yourself are a survivor of childhood/adolescent trauma, if you are a parent who wants to understand your child's developmental needs, you should read this book. The client stories will stay with you, as will the knowledge of child development and trauma. Our society would be better off if everyone READS THIS BOOK!

    Excellent read!

    I enjoyed the way the author correlated the variety of traumas children and youth endure with how their young brains develope, or in many cases stop growing. The nurturing approach utilizing a team of people including the caregivers gives tangible, if not scientific, evidence that often times the damage done as a result of neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse can be altered. I don't say reversed because once a child has endured trauma the damage to brain development is done. Reversing implies an undoing or negating of something and that is not what this book states. Given the right setting with patient and loving people around them, over time nurturing can "restart" brain development; reframe beliefs which restructures thoughts and how we react to trauma. All parents, primary care givers, social workers, and all professionals need to read this book. It does require a minimal knowledge of the brain or it mght be difficult to understand.

    highly recommended

    AS a mental health professional, I heard about this book at a conference about trauma. This book was a pleasant surprise. Although Dr. Perry talked about some of the technical aspects of the brain's response to trauma, he did it in a reader-friendly fashion which was a nice review for me and would be suitable for a lay person. His stories were riveting and touching.

    Awesome book!

    This was an easy read and really opens the eyes to see more clearly through a psychiatrist work. This is a bunch of his case studies and what he discovered that helps.

    It was pretty good

    If youre purely interested in the stories be warned that most of it is about his therapuatic approach and psychiatric practices
