“The author knows caregivers need understanding and guidance to navigate the murky waters of trauma in children. She takes readers by the hand and guides with questions and observations that help turn thoughts into action plans. This book is written at an adult parent/caregiver level, with no prior knowledge of trauma needed. In addition, most professionals in child services would benefit from having this book in their office as a handout to all newcomers to the world of childhood trauma. ****!”

Doody's Review Service

“My four-year-old stayed very calm during our recent car accident, but later he didn't want to drive with me and had terrible nightmares. I was heartbroken and had no idea how to help him until I dove into this book. I learned that trauma, when handled properly, can build resilience in kids. Once I knew what to do and look for, I could stop panicking and focus. I am so grateful to Dr. Goldberg Mintz!”

—Jenn C., Houston, Texas
