Aimed at school staff and other caregivers on the front lines of providing assistance without in-depth training or an understanding of how trauma manifests, this book offers a detailed approach to helping children who have experienced trauma.

Trauma in children varies in how it presents—in behavior, emotions, learning, and social interactions—and how to address it depends largely on its presentation. Children may exhibit many types of behavior that could be attributed to trauma, such as telling lies and feeling shame, lacking focus or having outbursts in class, and distrusting peers and adults, among many more.

When you read this book, you'll learn how to support a child with severe trauma by employing a sensitive yet structured approach. Discussion of a kaleidoscope of case studies using the new Basic Pyramid model, developed by the author, will help you to determine appropriate intervention.

  • Introduces a new intervention model used as the basis of care for children with trauma
  • Offers clear application of intervention practices in case studies
  • Emphasizes the link between trauma, behavior, learning, emotions, and social interaction skills among children
  • Demonstrates that supportive action can produce positive responses in children with trauma
  • Available to buy
