Book Description

Wounded Angels: Inspiration From Children in Crisis uses vignettes of children in crisis situations to portray how troubling behaviors can act as clues for ways children can grow stronger after traumatic stress. This text shows how children can guide caregivers and practitioners through hidden conflicts and, through case examples, provide opportunities to develop emotionally supportive relationships. Practitioners and caregivers can use Wounded Angels to encourage a resilient perspective for children. In return, this text informs readers how children find their own path towards healing.
