A world-renowned child psychiatrist offers a groundbreaking new perspective on how stress and violence affect children's brains - and how they can be helped to heal. What happens when a young brain is traumatized? How does terror, abuse or disaster affect a child's mind - and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has helped children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, murder witnesses, kidnapped teenagers and victims of family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, he tells their stories of trauma and transformation through the lens of science, revealing the brain's astonishing capacity for healing. Deftly combining unforgettable case histories with his own compassionate, insightful strategies for rehabilitation, Perry explains what exactly happens to the brain when a child is exposed to extreme stress - and reveals the unexpected measures that can be taken to ease a child's pain and help him grow into a healthy adult. Through the stories of children who recover - physically, mentally and emotionally - from the most devastating circumstances, Perry shows how simple things like surroundings, affection, language and touch can deeply impact the developing brain, for better or for worse. In this deeply informed and moving book, Bruce Perry dramatically demonstrates that only when we understand the science of the mind can we hope to heal the spirit of even the most wounded child.Biografía del autor:
