Description - Gentling by E. Krill William
Breakthrough Treatment Offers New Hope for Recovery Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition with 3 new chapters on adolescents 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 Clinicians Acclaim for Gentling "In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all too often treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for how to adapt proven post-trauma treatment to the world of a child." --Michele Rosenthal, HealMyPTSD.com "Congratulations to Krill when he says that 'being gentle' cannot be over-emphasized in work with the abused." --Andrew D. Gibson, PhD Author of Got an Angry Kid? Parenting Spike, A Seriously Difficult Child "William Krill's book is greatly needed. PTSD is the most common aftermath of child abuse and often domestic abuse as well. There is a critical scarcity of mental-health professionals who know how to recognize child abuse, let alone treat it."
