An essential guide for recognizing, preventing, and healing childhood trauma, from infancy through adolescence—what parents, educators, and health professionals can do. Trauma can result not only from catastrophic events such as abuse, violence, or loss of loved ones, but from natural disasters and everyday incidents such as auto accidents, medical procedures, divorce, or even falling off a bicycle. At the core of this book is the understanding of how trauma is imprinted on the body, brain, and spirit, resulting in anxiety, nightmares, depression, physical illnesses, addictions, hyperactivity, and aggression. Rich with case studies and hands-on activities, Trauma Through a Child’s Eyes gives insight into children’s innate ability to rebound with the appropriate support, and provides their caregivers with tools to overcome and prevent trauma.

FROZEN: Through the Eyes of a Child, Triumph Over Abuse is written to enlighten the reader regarding what daily emotional and physical trauma happens to abused children. How can a child survive when her shattered family fails to protect her? How can an abused child believe she is loved? How does the child deal with multiple losses, the betrayals, the lies, the blame that she must endure from the abusers? What words can express the child's conflict when the man who sexually abuses her is her daddy who she is supposed to love? What has happened to that child of abuse, is a deep-rooted feeling of "not being good enough." It's a tremendous insecurity which prevails throughout the child's life. Other symptoms manifest such as a fear of closeness. Abused children often grow up choosing emotionally unavailable partners, repeating the cycle of abuse that is familiar to them. Yet, again it confirms that "Families don't work." Imagine a father on top of his seven or eight year-old daughter (or son) slowly attempting to penetrate his child. It's a horrific image, right? That's exactly what too many children endure and have to learn to cope with from their fathers, step-fathers, uncles, brothers, cousins, babysitters, and even mothers. Most of the time, sexual abuse is committed by someone who the child trusts. Children are forced to develop coping strategies to survive the trauma and violation that often haunts them for years, affecting every aspect of their lives. It's very common for survivors to have dissociative amnesia. The brain attempts to bury the traumatic event, preventing the memory out until the person is able to handle the reality of what happened to him or her. Now, however, the Child's Victims Act in New York, allows for child victims of sexual abuse to provide an outlet and legal means for the survivors when they do speak out. Other state laws just say, "Sorry we can't help you. There's a statute of limitations; too much time has gone by. It's too late for you!" Tragically, it seems that, all too often, the laws protect the perpetrators and not the victims. Hopefully, all the US states will adopt NY's Child's Victims Act. In reality, we are only victims if we choose to perceive ourselves as victims! We must not be defined based upon our circumstances or by our family of origin! Only we have the power. We must use our power to define ourselves!

Imagine if you will, living through World War II in England. The times were traumatic and terrifying. Now imagine that you are seeing the war Through the Eyes of a Child. Author Violet Apted describes what her life was like as a young girl in Ashford Kent in the years 1939 to 1945. Experience her perception of the events, as well as the restrictions placed on her and the effects this had on her life. British children during the war years experienced a vastly different childhood from today. They witnessed the deaths of family and friends, and faced the reality that their own lives were in constant danger. Yet the naivety and boundless innocence of a child weaves its way throughout this heartwarming story. Violet and her childhood friends were never sure if there would be a tomorrow. You will feel this young girl's fears and share her hopes, as she remembers the horrors and dangers that no child should ever have to know. Perhaps if we take Violet's story to heart we can learn from history's mistakes, and no longer will we know War, Through the Eyes of a Child. Violet Apted's mother used to say she was born with a pen in her hand. Now retired, the author lives in Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia. War, Through the Eyes of a Child is her fourth book. "This is the book I always planned to write." The fifth is underway.
