Understand how adolescents experience loss and how to provide help and support.

Trauma can result not just from major disasters but also serious loss, sudden disruption and abuse of all kinds.

Children and teenagers can experience the effects of trauma in many ways including wakefulness, vigilance, panic attacks and disillusion.

This innovative resource contains practical techniques and ways of working with children and teenagers, including empowering methods to enable them to take charge of their own feelings. The therapeutic creative arts approaches covered include body work (self-soothing, massage and relaxation), creative play, art-based activities, role-play, movement, story and drama that will help young people to express their feelings, build resilience and allow time and space for healing and to break the cycle of traumatic experience.

The book provides a guide to theory and an outline of contrasting approaches to trauma work, with worksheets for both individual and group work.

Invaluable for teachers, counsellors and therapists as well as social services and health professionals, parents and carers.
