Summary

What parents, educators, and health professionals can do to recognize, prevent, and heal childhood trauma, from infancy through adolescence—by the author of Waking the Tiger

Trauma can result not only from catastrophic events such as abuse, violence, or loss of loved ones, but from natural disasters and everyday incidents like auto accidents, medical procedures, divorce, or even falling off a bicycle. At the core of this book is the understanding of how trauma is imprinted on the body, brain, and spirit—often resulting in anxiety, nightmares, depression, physical illnesses, addictions, hyperactivity, and aggression.

Rich with case studies and hands-on activities, Trauma Through a Child’s Eyes gives insight into children’s innate ability to rebound with the appropriate support, and provides their caregivers with tools to overcome and prevent trauma.

Trauma Through A Child’s Eyes . . . 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

Critic reviews

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

“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

Fabulous book.

What an amazing amount of information I got from this book, I found it really helpful with lots of tips that I can use in my setting and lots of samples I can relate to the children in my care- I can’t wait to start putting the advice into practice.

Incredibly disappointing

The narrator reads the book as though it were a bed time story, so loses the impact if the subject matter. The book ir feels is read, rather than narrates which results in challenging content being brushed aside. The content itself was sort of agreeable, but lacks the urgency and enlightenment to the books and studies it refers to.
