Helping Your Child with Loss and Trauma: A self-help guide for parents (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


Is your chid struggling to cope with a loss, change or trauma? This essential guide for provides informed advice for parents about how to support your children when they encounter difficulties with bereavement, separation and trauma.

Although loss and change are an inevitable part of life, some children find such events overwhelming and in some cases they can become traumatised by them. Research has indicated that children are less likely to develop problems such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) if they are provided with the appropriate support and opportunities to talk about difficult events and their impact on them. However, often parents are unsure how to go about supporting their children through potentially traumatic events, and may worry that they might actually make things worse if they talk about it.

This book will help you to understand the impact that loss, change and trauma can have on your children; it will help to prepare your children for anticipated events and it will help to increase their resilience in coping.

Helping Your Child is a series for parents and caregivers to support children through developmental difficulties, both psychological and physical. Each guide uses clinically proven techniques.
