Today's children cannot avoid a constant stream of images and accounts of frightening events. Wars, terrorist attacks, school shootings and the threat of nuclear and biological attacks are all over the radio, television and Internet. While not all of these dangers are unique to the twenty-first century, the constant presence of media images and reports exposes children to suffering and trauma in a way not experienced by earlier generations. Moreover, our increasingly fast-pasted and fragmented lifestyles inevitably subject children to confusing and destabilizing events such as divorce, abandonment and change of household. Additionally, today's children must adapt to harsher and more dangerous forms of bullying and abuse by their peers and struggle to understand issues of sexual and gender identification.

In this timely and much-needed book, Linda Goldman addresses the many frightening events that impact our children by providing the reader with a seamless mixture of theory and practice garnered from her extensive experience in the field. Raising Our Children To Be Resilient includes trauma resolution techniques and case studies, discussions of the respective roles played by parents, teachers and the larger community as well as additional resources for those in a position to help children who have been traumatized. The goal of Raising Our Children To Be Resilient is exactly what its title promises: to help children through their pain and confusion and guide them into a flexible and compassionate adulthood.
