The Traumatized Child - Complete Series

The impact of abuse and neglect on children - on their behaviors, on their sense of self, and on their capacity to re-form attachments with their parents, or form attachment with new caregivers can pose challenges for those working with children who have witnessed domestic violence or suffered child abuse, foster and adoptive parents, teachers and other professionals.

In this video series, therapists Margaret Blaustein, Joyanna Silberg, Frances Waters, and Sandra Wieland describe how traumatized children understand the world and interact with others differently from other children, and how adults can respond most effectively. They explore such topics as anger and anxiety, trauma triggers, dissociation, de-escalation strategies, grounding techniques, and the process of building a trusting relationship. Their observations are reinforced by the accounts of parents, teachers, and  older children. The presenters emphasize the importance of understanding what drives traumatized children's behaviors, rather than simply reacting to them. They provide concrete suggestions for stabilizing traumatized children and improving adult/child interactions.  Useful for parents, teachers, school counselors and psychologists, and mental health professionals.   Included in the series:
