But when we started, I didn't really know what I was doing, at least as a writer. Unlike Maia, I had never written a book. We had several discussions about how to put everything together. We decided to use a series of clinical narratives—stories, basically—about patients whose experiences illustrated key concepts about the brain, development, or trauma. We sought a balance between these detailed, individual stories and the teaching of scientific material; we wanted the reader to be engaged and not overwhelmed by either the complexities of the brain or the emotional intensity of a child's painful history. It was a fine line, and, as it turns out, for some readers the intensity or complexity were too much. So please note: if you are reading this book for the first time and have a history of traumatic experience, be aware that it does contain some extremely disturbing material. Pace yourself accordingly. Fishpond works with suppliers all over the world to bring you a huge selection of products, really great prices, and delivery included on over 25 million products that we sell.

I see you believe that our companions can’t talk to us. I have always been able to know what certain animals are thinking about. These same animals can read me like a book.

To develop a self one must exercise choice and learn from the consequences of those choices; if the only thing you are taught is to comply, you have little way of knowing what you like and want.” This post literally took my breath away. These are conclusions I have made on my own over the years. And I have never seen them gathered together in such a clear, cogent way. I am going to gobble up every resource you mentioned.

This is so fascinating to me. I wonder if it’s also true with people that they may seem fine after a experiencing a traumatic history, but once they start to feel more safe, secure and relaxed is when the issues can arise. I have noticed this a few times in dogs and, even tho it makes sense, it always surprises me. Are you the Author or Publisher of a book? Or the manufacturer of one of the millions of products that we sell. We could make guesses as to some things that might have happened to him….. (It was only later, when he was xrayed for a respiratory issue, that we discovered he’d been shot, and still carried at least two pieces of metal in his body……..) In this book, the reader learns that it is possible to remodel the brain of a traumatized child using patterned and repetitive experiences carried out in a safe space.Most of the time, the kids would gravitate towards one adult or the other either to talk or to play a game. The adult would offer the needed support or the appropriate response as required by the child at the time.

Food and water deprivation were also practised and when aprehended Diotima suffered from emaciation and dehydration. Sorry, this has turned into a book but clearly it’s a topic that really resonates with me. Thanks for the book recommendations. I’m looking forward to any clues they provide as I work with my damaged dog.How do we identify the dogs? We can’t ask them, and they can’t tell us that something horrible happened to them in the past. So often dogs are “diagnosed” as “dominant” or aggressive for some reason that involves what we’d think of in people as character flaws. To my surprise, this happens commonly with children; many of Perry’s cases involved victims who were diagnosed with a range of issues, from ADHD, to just being plain stubborn or manipulative. Rarely had anyone ever asked what had happened in their past that might explain their behavior. Negative emotions often make things even more memorable than positive ones because recalling things that are threatening—and avoiding those situations in the future if possible—is often critical to survival.”
