   if you're needing to look into books like this, I am truly sorry
If you are looking for books, I am truly sorry. This book was perfect for our needs, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of the University of Michigan's Center for Health and Human Services. I appreciated how the terrible thing was never described in any way so my child could imagine it as if he needed it to be, Mrs Hughes said. The descriptions of nightmares, crazy behavior, acting out and getting into trouble and feeling yucky all the time were appropriate for my child's experience, Melissa said. Thanks to Dr. Goin for the representation of therapy. It helped my preschooler know what to expect, the talking and playing, and ultimately the feeling better, Dr. Goin added. He marched right into his first appointment and told the therapist all about what they were supposed to do and how she would help him, and got right into talking about his terrible thing.
   Counseling Graduate Students/Play Therapist
I am currently in the process of becoming a play therapist and purchased this book for my collection. The book goes into details about the physical symptoms of something terrible and then it talks about the various emotional components of that terrible experience, finally it ends with how play therapy works and the results of therapy. Very good book, great illustrations and language. Great resource, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of the NIH's Ames Research Center in California.
   This is one of my favorite children's books to help children talk about something that ...
It's just that the terrible thing is never stated. Even though the book is about a boy who kills his mother, it really allows children to explore the terrible things themselves.

This book is great for students to understand what they experience after witnessing a traumatic event. Great for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade.
   Very well written book
It is an easy read and explains what happens to a person when they witness a crime.
   Good therapy book
This is a good ice breaker therapy book to use with children who have experienced trauma, said Dr. Sharona. Robinson, director of the Child Development and Early Intervention Center at Boston Children's Hospital. It explains the purpose of therapy and why it helped Richard, who had something terrible happen to him, even though the book never says what. The book was well received by several children who enjoyed it.
   I love this book
I've read all the books, and I love this one. Now that I have my own copy, I am able to use it with any client that has experienced a trauma. I would highly recommend this product to any counselor, therapist, teacher, or even doctor who works with young children and traumatic experiences.

It captured the interest of my 9, 6, and 4 and got us talking. I love it and think it helps them understand why we are in therapy, normalize what they've been through and validates their feeling, Raymond said. In my opinion, it's perfect.
   Perfect for Foster Parenting
I can't stop thinking about how my 3 year old foster son can relate to this book. In "The Maze Runner," Samwise talks about different emotions he feels and ways a kid can act out due to being traumatized. My son has all but devoured the book. What a great story, how the traumatic thoughts might never go away but there is a way to have healthy coping and keep living, Kerry said. This book encourages kids to tell a trusted grown-up to get the help they need to cope with all the scary feelings. If you are considering adoption, I would recommend this to any foster parent.
   Great book, only works in some cases of child trauma
The book is a bit limited because the character who has experienced a trauma is externalizing, Sosa said. anger, defiance, acting out, so if you are working with a child who internalizes, it can be very challenging, Dr. Murnan said. It doesn't really hit the mark, clinical depression, and anxiety are all considered. 0 262111 262113 It's just that the sadness, depression, and anxiety are not really hitting the mark. It's a terrible thing to see a kid with trauma, Raymond said. It's great to see the kids still playing baseball, but I'd prefer to see them doing something more like "Sherlock's Big Secret." The book is great, the concept of the book is great and the illustrations are beautiful, Morgenthau said.
