Recent terrorist acts, and the media they have generated, means that children are more exposed to hearing about terrorism than ever before. Using simple language suited to children aged seven and up, this book is designed for an adult to read along with a child to help ease their misunderstanding and fear. The authors, child psychologists, tackle a broad range of important but difficult questions, including: Why do some people and groups use terrorism? What are adults doing to prevent societies being hurt by terrorism? And what can we do when we feel worried and afraid? An honest and helpful guide to talking about terrorism, this reassuring book helps adults address children's questions and concerns.

Reviews:

How can parents talk with their children about unspeakable terrorist attacks? How can they help them make sense of actions that most of us find irrational? How can they comfort them despite the perception of ongoing threat? In 'What is terrorism?', world-renowned clinical psychologists have distilled wisdom from decades of work with children and families to answer these topical questions... 'What is Terrorism?' is a highly accessible book that empowers parents and carers to support children after terrorist attacks.
European Journal of Psychotraumatology

This book succeeds in doing a difficult and vital job: explaining a particularly frightening phenomenon to children in a way that's fair and in language that's understandable. Having read or listened to the book, children will feel clearer and less scared. Carers and professionals will, in turn, feel more confident about having the conversations that really matter.
— Nick Luxmoore, psychotherapist, trainer, supervisor and author

The authors do an excellent job transforming scary concepts into clear and candid explanations so they are much less frightening to children. A section for children provides practical coping skills to manage worries of dramatic news. Another section equips teachers, parents and other adults to answer tough questions while providing
much needed reassurance.
— Carol Lozier LCSW, author of DBT Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Working with Teens
