Hi Leanne,

I'm a psychologist so very familiar with the exciting world of child psychology. I recommend the book "The Psychology of the Child" by Jean Piaget, which is a classic. It's not necessarily 'fun' to read and is pretty dense, but is full of fascinating information about child development; intellectual, emotional, and social aspects of child development. There's also "How to Talk so Kids Will Listen...And Listen So Kids Will Talk" by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, which is a practical and helpful book. If you're looking for books about childhood mental illness, there's "Disorders of Childhood: Development and Psychopathology' by Robin Hornik Parritz or "Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology" by DeDe Wohlfarth.  Also, a helpful book is "Creative Interventions for Troubled Children and Youth" by Liana Lowenstein and a really comprehensive book about how trauma affects kids and people at any age called "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel van der Kolk.

Hi Jo,

Thats great thank you! 
would you recommend starting with “The Psychology of the Child“ ? 
I’ve had personal/professional  experience with children who have witnessed “trauma” and how their behaviours have resulted in  “reactions” And working through them to gain a “happier and more settled” mind.
Im wanting to understand more,  so I can guide them, so it doesn’t have a knock on affect in later life.

 

 

Thank you

Leanne 😁

Hi Leanne,

The most comprehensive book about childhood trauma repercussions and treatment is “The Body Keeps The Score” by Bessel van der Kolk. There are some great online resources:

https://www.childtrauma.org

https://www.childmind.org

https://www.crisisprevention.org

https://www.nctsn.org

(national childhood traumatic stress network)

These websites have a lot of resources and information.
