Using his revolutionary biological/physiological-based trauma-healing techniques, Levine leads listeners through a series of exercises for adults to do with children who have been traumatized or as a way to prevent future trauma. This program contains a picture book and study guide for adults and children to work with together.

The ability to heal is innate, making the adult's role simple: it is to help children access their own ability to recover. This is similar in any ways to the function of a band-aid or a splint. The band-aid or splint doesn't heal the wound, but protects it, and supports the body in restoring itself. When appropriately guided, children will grow stronger and will have an increased immunity from the effects of future potential traumas. The suggestions provided here are meant to enable adults to be good "band-aids" for children.
How to use this audio learning set:
It is suggested that you first listen to the two audiotapes without your child. This will give you a broad idea of the nature of trauma in children, and provide you with various things that you can do to help prevent traumatic symptoms from developing in children after stressful events. It also explains how to help children regain balance and resilience after traumatization. Next, it is suggested that you read the provided parent's guide as a review and so that you will know how to best use the final section of the program to help guide your child with the spoken rhymes and fold-out pictures. Finally, to offer best support for your child as you work with the rhymes, it is important to take time to study the verses and the corresponding instructions prior to listening together. This way you will be ready for the various possible responses from your child - and better in control of your own reactions.About the Author:
