Many children who have experienced serious trauma are withdrawn and closed off, making it difficult to engage with them in therapy effectively. This book offers a compendium of therapeutic activities that will help children who have endured painful abuse to open up, so that they can learn to express their feelings and therapy can be directed towards their individual needs. From useful techniques for bridging memory gaps to using masks for self-expression, the innovative activities use mindfulness, art and play to help children feel relaxed and responsive. The activities require very little preparation, and use only everyday items that are easy to access and can be used time and time again. Case studies throughout offer a helpful demonstration of how the activities work in practice. This is an ideal resource for use with children in therapeutic, home and school settings. It is appropriate to use with children aged 5-17 who have experienced trauma, physical abuse, sexual abuse, forced migration and severe neglect, as well as those with acute depression, anxiety and behavioural difficulties.

Childhood Denied

Throughout history, violence against children has taken every possible form (physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, neglect, and child labor), at times adopting quite strange shapes. He went on to say that in ancient times, even the right to life had to be conferred by a rite; before that, a kid with no rights might be disposed of as casually as an aborted fetus. Throughout much of history, adult-adolescent sexual interaction was not only permitted but often the standard; adult-child sexual interaction was somewhat less common but still reasonably prevalent. Many famous historical characters demonstrate that adult/adolescent, and to a lesser extent adult-child, sexual behavior was widespread and generally tolerated. The man-boy partnerships that were frequent in ancient Greece and Rome are one of the most well-known examples. Individual examples include St. Augustine, Mahatma Gandhi. Child abuse and neglect do not often have visible warning signals. However, by learning to spot the indicators of a problem, you can make a significant impact on a child's life. Child abuse is more than simply black eyes. While physical abuse is horrifying because of its scars, not all indications of child abuse are as visible. Ignoring a child's needs, leaving them unsupervised in risky settings, exposing them to sexual situations, or making them feel worthless or foolish are all forms of child abuse and neglect that can leave profound, lasting scars on children. Abuse and neglect of any kind leave permanent scars. Some of these scars may be physical, but emotional scarring has long-term consequences, affecting a child's sense of self, future relationships, and capacity to perform at home, work, and school. Individuals who have been traumatized as children face unique issues that can be addressed via various healing techniques. The approach used and its efficacy differ from person to person and frequently change over time as the nature of trauma and healing shifts.

Intergenerational Cycles of Trauma and Violence An Attachment and Family Systems Perspective

Exploring the conditions under which children, as a function of their own abuse, become abusive themselves. That experiences from childhood affect our behavior in adulthood, especially in the ways we treat our children and intimate partners, is generally accepted. Indeed, theories of intergenerational transmission of violence indicate that if we ourselves have been abused and neglected as children, we will likely be abusive and neglectful to others close to us—thus extending the cycle across generations. However, many individuals who were maltreated as children do not replicate this cycle, and such models make little sense of the individual raised in a “good family” who is violent either as a child or as an adult. These discontinuities of cycles of violence and trauma have challenged professionals and nonprofessionals alike. However, broadening our vision and attending to new areas of research can help to illuminate this conundrum and open up new avenues of intervention. In this book, Pamela Alexander does just that. She proposes that an increased risk for abusive behavior or revictimization, as a function of one’s own experiences of abuse or trauma in childhood, can best be understood through the complementary lenses of attachment theory (focusing on the relationship between the child and the caregiver) and family systems theory (focusing on the larger context of this relationship). That is, what a child acquires from her relationship with a caregiver is not simply a reflection of what she has “learned” from experiencing or witnessing abuse. Rather, it emerges from the child’s felt experience of the relationship itself—on implicit emotional, physical, and neurobiological levels. Alexander founds the book on this multifaceted parent–child attachment relationship and its place in the wider family system, integrating clinical experience with close attention to the long-term neurobiological and epigenetic effects of trauma. She focuses on common outcomes of a history of maltreatment, and of child sexual abuse in particular, including peer victimization, partner violence, parenting problems, and sexual offending. A detailed review of the literature accompanies instructive case examples. Sources of trauma from outside the family, including combat exposure, political terrorism, foster care, and incarceration of parents are considered. Finally, Alexander analyzes the multiple sources of natural resilience—the neurobiological, the individual, the relational, and the social—to enable professionals of all backgrounds to tailor-make effective interventions for interrupting cycles of trauma and violence.

Child and Adolescent Exposure to Trauma Comparative Effectiveness of Interventions Addressing Trauma Other Than Maltreatment Or Family Violence

This review, the second in the series, addresses the treatment of children exposed to traumatic events other than child maltreatment or family violence, some of whom are already experiencing symptoms.

Approximately two-thirds of children and adolescents will experience at least one traumatic event, creating a critical need to identify effective child trauma interventions. While most children exposed to trauma do not experience long-term negative sequelae in terms of psychological and social functioning, some go on to develop traumatic stress syndromes, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Studies have indicated that childhood traumatic stress syndromes are associated with a high degree of impairment that can carry into adolescence and adulthood. For example, childhood PTSD increases the risk for developing comorbid mental disorders, such as depression, substance abuse, and conduct disorder. Suicidality is a particular concern for children with PTSD. Decreased social, home, school (lower academic achievement), and relational functioning have also been observed in children and adolescents with PTSD. Although several guidelines on the treatment of PTSD during childhood and adolescence exist, the recommendations have not been largely based on evidence resulting from Comparative Effectiveness Reviews. Furthermore, the guidelines offer inconsistent recommendations for interventions. The current review is the second in a two-part series focusing on interventions that address child trauma. The first in the series focuses on the comparative effectiveness of interventions that address child exposure to trauma in the form of maltreatment (physical, sexual, and emotional/psychological abuse, and neglect). This review, the second in the series, addresses the treatment of children exposed to traumatic events other than child maltreatment or family violence, some of whom are already experiencing symptoms. Interventions for children exposed to family violence (i.e., intimate partner violence and other forms of violence exposure in the home) are not covered by either review given the heterogeneity in this population and the interventions used to treat family violence exposure. That is, children who witness but do not directly experience interpersonal violence represent different clinical populations in terms of the nature of the relationship disturbance and implications for treatment. The review also seeks to understand whether evidence exists for differences in the efficacy of interventions by specific child or treatment characteristics or by setting of the delivered intervention. Finally, the review attempts to identify adverse events associated with the interventions reviewed. An overarching goal of this review is to identify gaps in the current scientific literature, and to highlight important areas for future research, to help build the evidence base for interventions targeting traumatic stress symptoms or syndromes with children exposed to trauma other than maltreatment or family violence. Key Question 1: What is the comparative effectiveness of different types of pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, complementary and alternative therapy, or other therapy, such as combined, for children ages 0 to 17 years exposed to trauma other than maltreatment? Key Question 2: What is the comparative effectiveness of different types of pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, complementary and alternative therapy, or other therapy, such as combined, for children ages 0 to 17 years with traumatic stress symptoms from trauma other than maltreatment who are already experiencing symptoms? Key Question 3: Do interventions targeting children who were exposed to trauma and are already experiencing symptoms vary in their effectiveness by characteristics of the child, treatment, or setting? Key Question 4: What are the harms (e.g., low adherence/dropouts, side effects, retraumatization) associated with specific types of therapies targeting children exposed to trauma or targeting children who were exposed to trauma and are already experiencing symptoms?

Evidence suggests that some forms of domestic crimes are growing at an alarming rate. An epidemic of violence and maltreatment within the home and between intimates exists, often as part of an interrelated cycle: abuse victim becomes violent abuser. This book will be of interest to educators, students and professionals in the fields of child health and welfare, criminal justice, women's studies, gerontology, sociology and related areas. Part I is an introduction on domestic criminality that includes an historical review, demographic studies, and a discussion of medical treatments for victims. Issues such as domestic fatalities, battered women and men, conjugal rape, and abuse of elders are covered in Part II. An examination of child maltreatment by neglect and sexual abuse is discussed in Part III and symptoms of domestic criminality are covered in Part IV. Part V addresses theories, causes, and explanations of domestic violence, attempting to bridge gaps between existing studies. The characteristics of incarcerated domestic criminals are reviewed in Part VI; a discussion of efforts to help victims and decrease the level of domestic violence is provided in Part VII. Notes, suggested additional readings, and a bibliography are included.

Tens of thousands of children are removed from home each year due to some form of child maltreatment, usually physical neglect, physical abuse, or sexual abuse, although sometimes for emotional abuse as well. An additional significant number of children are victims of child maltreatment but remain in their home. Extensive research reveals the far reaching and long lasting negative impact of maltreatment on child victims, including on their physical, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. One particularly troubling and complicated aspect is how the child victim forms (and maintains) a “traumatic bond” with his abuser, even becoming protective and defensive of that person despite the pain and suffering they have caused. This book will provide the reader with the essential experience of understanding how children make meaning of being maltreated by a parent, and how these traumatic bonds form and last. Through an examination of published memoirs of abuse, the authors analyze and reveal the commonalities in the stories to uncover the ways in which adult victims of childhood abuse understand and digest the traumatic experiences of their childhoods. This understanding can inform interventions and treatments designed for this vulnerable population and can help family and friends of victims understand more fully the maltreatment experience “from the inside out.”

Because millions of children experience early trauma and attachment disruptions, whether through death, physical or sexual abuse, domestic, community, or school violence, terrorism or other tragic losses, parents and professionals need not just vague theories but a proactive plan for healing relationship avoidant children. Healing Traumatized Children authors Hall, Merkert and Biever have successfully merged mental health, trauma, and attachment, parenting and in-home treatment strategies into a single comprehensive resource for parents and professionals. The authors emphasize the importance of an in-home plan (where the healing must begin), outline how to effectively assemble a support network, provide the keys to the establishment of a therapeutic home environment, discuss psycho-education that identifies the six distinct Trauma Disrupted Competencies and provide multiple types of healing interventions. Healing Traumatized Children confirms that without effective in-home intervention, many of these children will become involved in juvenile and adult justice systems and continue the intergenerational transmission of maladaptive relationships, abuse, and neglect. It is important to remember that these children will eventually become tomorrow's parents.

Child abuse does not always leave visible marks; sometimes the abuse is emotional or sexual. Often, a child is abused in more than one way. Although abuse is never the victim’s fault, they may feel too guilty or ashamed to tell anyone about it. Therefore, it is important for others to recognize the signs. Through informative text, full-color photographs, discussion questions, and detailed infographics, this volume teaches young adults what abuse looks like and how to get help for themselves or for others if they recognize signs of an abusive situation.

ÿGentlingÿis a therapeutic approach to people who have experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse as children and have acquired Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result. Gentling has redefined PTSD in child abuse survivors by identifying child-specific behavioral signs commonly seen, and offers a means to individualize treatment and measure therapeutic outcomes through understanding each suffering individual's unique symptom profile. The practical and easily understoodÿGentlingÿapproaches and techniques can be learned by clinicians, spouses, and adolescent and adult survivors of child abuse and all other caregivers in relationship to survivors. The approach can effect real and lasting healing. With theÿGentling Workbook, you will: Learn how to gently explore and process your abuse history, at your own pace and comfort levelGain the practical, and effective treatment tools that really help to reduce PTSD discomfortsLearn how to manage the often intense reactivity seen in stress episodesUse the Stress Profile to understand your own unique symptom profile and to guide your healing process Praise for Krill's Gentling model "William Krill reminds us that 'gentleness is free', but the methodology and philosophy he puts into designing a protocol for treating stress disordered children is priceless. In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all too often treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for how to adapt proven post-trauma treatment to the world of a child." --Michele Rosenthal, HealMyPTSD.com "William Krill's approach to treating PTSD in abused children employs a common sense oriented treatment that will not only help the child but will direct the clinician through the 'where do I go next?' question. This book is so needed in the world of PTSD and provides step-by-step understanding and treatment of the battered child." --Marjorie McKinnon, Author ofÿRepair for Kids: A Children's Program for Recovery from Incest & Childhood Sexual Abuse Learn more at www.Gentling.org From the New Horizons in Therapy Series Loving Healing Press www.LHPress.com
