Summary, etc.:
"Are children and adolescents being silenced and their growth stunted in the age of quick diagnoses and overmedication? In The Silenced Child, Dr. Claudia Gold shows the tremendous power of listening in parent/child and doctor/patient relationships. Through vivid stories, perceptive insights, and new research, she shows the way children grow from these relationships and how being heard actually changes their brains. She helps both parents and caregivers make the time and space for listening. Praise for Keeping Your Child in Mind: "A very useful, thoughtful book. It lays out the best thinking of our time to help parents make decisions about nurturing their child's development." -T. Berry Brazelton, MD, professor of Pediatrics, Emeritus Harvard Medical School"-- Provided by publisher.
"Are children and adolescents being silenced, and their growth stunted in this age of labels, medication, and frantically rushed lives? Claudia Gold reveals the astonishing power of listening in parent/child and doctor/patient relationships. Through vivid and perceptive stories and new insights from neuroscience, Claudia Gold shows how being listened to relieves conflict, builds resilience and actually changes a child's brain. This happens in all kinds of relationships: parent and child, doctor and child, doctor and parent, teacher and student, in the healing of adolescent depression, and in the prevention of postpartum depression. She helps parents and caregivers resist the pressures of hasty diagnoses and make the time and space that children of all ages, and parents themselves, need in order to grow and to flourish"-- Provided by publisher.
