Perry,Maia Szalavitz Online


In this instant classic of developmental psychology, a
renowned psychiatrist examines the effect that trauma can have on a
child, reveals how PTSD impacts the developing mind, and outlines the
path to recovery.

What happens when a young brain is
traumatized? How does terror, abuse, or disaster affect a child's mind
-- and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Dr. Bruce D. Perry
has helped children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors,
murder witnesses, kidnapped teenagers, and victims of family
violence.
In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, Dr. Perry
tells their stories of trauma and transformation through the lens of
science, revealing the brain's astonishing capacity for healing. Deftly
combining unforgettable case histories with his own compassionate,
insightful strategies for rehabilitation, Perry explains what exactly
happens to the brain when a child is exposed to extreme stress -- and
reveals the unexpected measures that can be taken to ease a child's pain
and help him grow into a healthy adult.
As a senior fellow at the
Child Trauma Academy, Dr. Perry and his clinical group worked with
hundreds who endured severe childhood neglect and abuse with incredible
resilience and strength. Through the stories of children who recover --
physically, mentally, and emotionally -- from the most devastating
circumstances, Perry shows how simple things like surroundings,
affection, language, and touch can deeply impact the developing brain,
for better or for worse. In this deeply informed and moving book, Bruce
Perry dramatically demonstrates that only when we understand the science
of the mind can we hope to heal the spirit of even the most wounded
child.
