Description

You Can Heal Your Child begins with a fundamental question often asked by parents of children displaying various kinds of difficulties who, at best, feel lost for answers and, at worst, feel failed by the systems that are supposed to help them: What’s Wrong with my Child? Presented in a question and answer format, this book educates parents about their child’s natural responses to the real events of their life: stress and/or trauma.

Numerous resources are described in order to assist parents in taking the first and most important steps toward healing their child. Self-Regulation Therapy (SRT), an effective and naturalistic healing approach to the effects of stress and trauma, is also explained.
