When a child has been through an upsetting or stressful event, it can feel overwhelming. Is my child traumatized? Are new behaviors normal, or signs of PTSD? What can I do to make my child feel safe again? In this wise and authoritative guide, psychologist Melissa Goldberg Mintz assures loving parents that the tools necessary for supporting a traumatized child are ones they already possess, from promoting recovery at home, to knowing when professional help is needed. Dr. Goldberg Mintz shares specific, critical information and insights into what trauma looks like at different ages, why some kids exposed to the same event react very differently, how to help a child through trauma triggers, and more. Most important, she shows parents how to ensure that kids don’t feel constrained by fear--and can face future challenges with hope and resilience.
