Synopsis

Praise for Working With Grieving and Traumatized Children andAdolescents

"This much-needed book effectively argues for the use ofstructured activities as the basis for exploring trauma-specificquestions in clinical work with traumatized children andadolescents. Numerous examples of children's artwork enhance thebook and illustrate the effectiveness of the treatment. Theauthors' methods have been used successfully for many years andrepresent a major contribution to the study of trauma that will bewelcomed by both students and seasoned practitioners."
-Nancy Boyd Webb, DSW, LICSW, RPT-S Professor of SocialWork Emerita, Fordham University, Author: Play Therapy WithChildren in Crisis

"The authors provide a clear theoretical framework anddemonstrate practical sensory-based activities so kids can discoverand reconnect with their bodies' agency and vitality. Refreshingly,this vehicle creates an emotionally safe journey for the child intothe mystery of the experiential, embedded in implicit memory. It'schock-full of invitations to explore self-impressions andworldviews in a way that children feel seen, not assessed."
