Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Trauma Through A Child’s Eyes is an extraordinary body of work. Healing ourselves and our children of the effects of trauma is of the utmost importance. The more aligned we are inside ourselves and with our outer world, the more we will be able to create peace." —Debbie Robins, bestselling author of Where Peace Lives

"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

    Psychologist Recommended

    My son's psychologist recommended this book and it has helped me (his mother) to understand his view of the world, and help change his life so he is able to heal from past hurt. This book is easy to read and a must have for those who are trying to help their child heal from trauma.

    If the subtitle of the book didn't include the word adolescent,

    If the subtitle of the book didn't include the word adolescent, I would have given it 4 stars instead of 3. The book is geared more toward children under the age of 12, perhaps even younger. The overarching principles still apply; however, the "healing" techniques seem to engender young children.

    The most disappointing aspect of the book is that it fails to address what may well be the most prominent form of trauma in the United States today: prolonged or repeated physical abuse by trusted adults. There are full chapters on falls and accidents; surgery and medical procedures; divorce, death and separation; and sexual molestation. Part I of the book repeatedly mentions physical abuse, especially prolonged or repeated abuse, but there isn't a chapter that addresses it. The authors implore parents to seek professional help in cases of either physical or sexual abuse. They include a chapter for sexual abuse but not for physical abuse.

    Even when professional help is sought, I feel it is imperative that parents have resources to help them be good adjuncts in the healing process. The chapter on sexual molestation is an excellent resource for such parents. Where is the chapter on physical abuse? This is a travesty to omit!
