Many children who have experienced serious trauma are withdrawn and closed off, making it difficult to engage with them in therapy effectively.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.

Dr. Stuart Shanker revolutioniert die Erziehung unserer Kinder: Seine Methode der Selbstregulierung ermöglicht Kindern aller Altersstufen – und deren Eltern – zu einer besonderen inneren Balance zu finden, einem Zustand von ruhiger Wachsamkeit. Von klein an wirken zu viele Reize auf sie ein, spätestens ab dem Schulalter sind sie einem oft unvorstellbaren Stress ausgesetzt. Das macht unruhig, unkonzentriert, aggressiv und hyperaktiv. Erwachsene reagieren meist mit einer Forderung nach Gehorsam – was leider nur dazu führt, dass der Druck weiter erhöht wird. Dr. Shankers Methode geht an die Wurzeln und bietet eine wirkliche Lösung. So kann Kindern – vom Kleinkind bis zum Teenager – geholfen werden. Jedem einzelnen.
