There are many events that can be traumatic to a child: abuse, death of a close family member, the loss of a home due to a natural disaster, accidents, chronic illnesses, violence in the home, and more. Some children show a remarkable resiliency in handling trauma, but most children show some symptoms in the first few weeks and months after a trauma and many children show symptoms for years to come. The healing activities in this book are designed to accomplish five major goals: To help children express their feelings To help children accept what has happened to them, and know it was not their fault To help children re-connect with adults and other children To teach emotional management and a positive outlook on life To prevent chronic and debilitating symptoms, including post-traumatic stress disorder Although almost all children who have gone through a trauma will benefit from long-time, non-directive therapy, relatively few children will get this opportunity. Most children who see a counsellor will do so for a limited amount of time in a school or clinic setting. With this in mind, this book presents quick, easy and fun activities, which can be done in just 30 minutes or less, by counsellors who are not necessarily specialists in trauma disorders. Each activity has a specific objective, but as you interact with children, you may find that their interests, or concerns take them in a different direction. As you know, children learn and develop in very unique ways, and with your caring guidance they will find their own meaning in each activity. Because many of the activities have hand-outs, we have also provided you with a CD of the book, so that you can print out pages from your computer. The book includes a wide variety of techniques and comes with three different card games and a mini-board game.

Ages: 6-12

Includes: Book, 8 1/2 x 11, 146 pages, spiral bound
