This is particularly the case in marginalized groups of young people who are subject to loss, grief, trauma and shame. Through a snapshot of the diverse student populous, this book explores the impact of these experiences on a student's learning and success. Topics covered include poverty, obesity, incarceration, immigration, death, sexual exploitation, LGBT issues, psychodrama, the expressive arts, resilience, and military students.
The authors share the children's perspective, and through case studies they offer solutions and viable objectives. Really dealing with loss in productive ways, however, is sometimes easier said than done. It presents words and methods to help initiate discussions of these delicate topics, as well as tools to help children understand and separate complicated grief into parts. These parts in turn can be grieved for and released one at a time. The last study is from the Oklahoma bombing and the outgrowth of a place for the traumatized children and how they still work with kids and family today.
This chapter then contains new activities to work with traumatized grieving children.

The new edition also includes updated resources, books, curriculums, websites, hotlines and another new chapter on bullying and victimization issues. The chapter for educators has been expanded, including the coverage of topics such as at-risk students, gay and lesbian issues, and self-injurious behaviors.
In this timely and much-needed book, Linda Goldman addresses the many frightening events that impact our children by providing the reader with a seamless mixture of theory and practice garnered from her extensive experience in the field. Raising Our Children to Be Resilient includes trauma resolution techniques and case studies, discussions of the respective roles played by parents, teachers and the larger community as well as additional resources for those in a position to help children who have been traumatized.

The goal of Raising Our Children to Be Resilient is exactly what its title promises: to help children through their pain and confusion and guide them into a flexible and compassionate adulthood. I have written this interactive story book, Bart Speaks Out, for young children.

It is my way of giving a voice to the silence of the subject of suicide in today's world. Throughout my research and collection of children's resources on issues of grief and loss, suicide is the only subject where I could not find a child's storybook or workbook. Counselors, therapists, educators, parents, and other caring professionals must explore the topic of suicide openly if we are to break through the barriers of shame and secrecy that accompany this topic, and create fertile ground for the resolution of this complicated grief situation.
It is normal for children to grieve the death of someone who is a significant person in their lives. Suicide, however, and other complicated grief issues such as homicide, AIDS, violence, and abuse creates a set of traumatic emotional issues that tend to separate the child from the normal flow of grief. So often a child can not say that their special person died because they would have to say how that person died. These unexpressed and unresolved life issues, these frozen blocks of time, create a wall of ice between the child and his or her grief and it is up to us as caring adults to help melt down that wall.
Hopefully this book will serve as an effective tool to begin the meltdown process. Children Also Grieve is an imaginative resource, fully illustrated with color photographs, that offers support and reassurance to children coming to terms with the loss of a close friend or relative and to adults who are supporting them through their bereavement. The first part of the book is designed to be read and worked through by children. The story tells of the experiences of Henry, the dog of a family whose grandfather has died.
During Henry's progress through the different stages of bereavement, he learns strategies for coping with his grief. At various stages of the story, Goldman provides readers with the opportunity to share their own reactions to loss through words and pictures, using specific prompt questions that encourage the exploration of different facets of grief. The second part includes a list of useful vocabulary to help children express their feelings about bereavement, a bibliography of other useful resources for both children and adults, and a section that will help adults to understand and aid children throughout the grief process.
