Gentling: A Practical Guide to Treating PTSD in Abused Children

 
Share

Gentling represents a new paradigm in the therapeutic approach to children who have experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse and have acquired Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result. This text redefines 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 child's unique symptom profile. The practical and easily understood Gentling approaches and techniques can be easily learned by clinicians, parents, foster parents, teachers and all other care givers of these children to effect real and lasting healing. With this book, you will: 

  • Learn child-specific signs of PTSD in abused children
  • Learn how to manage the often intense reactivity seen in stress episodes
  • Gain the practical, gentle, and effective treatment tools that really help these children
  • Use the Child Stress Profile (CSP) to guide treatment and measure outcomes
  • Deploy handy 'Quick Teach Sheets' that can be copied and handed to foster parents, teachers, and social workers
