MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book brilliantly offers essential tools for parents, teachers, counselors, and others who are concerned about the psyched of children growing up in today's, sometimes terrifying, world. Mrs. Goldman discusses ways in which one can foster a sense of optimism, courage, and realistic goal-setting, humor and self-confidence. These lessons are not for children only, and it would do anyone, of any age, good to read this book." -- The Laurel Connection (D'ESOPO), Karen L. Carney, RN, LCSW, CT, Book Reviewer
"The first thing you'll notice when you flip through this 348 page paperback book is that it is full of children's hand-written stories, quotations, artwork and photographs. Author Linda Goldman clearly understands that if you want to help children, you must start by listening to them. In this book Goldman suggests positive rituals and simple projects that allow children to be recognize as mourners. She concludes by defining key traits, models and activities to promote resiliency in children and perhaps-in ourselves." -- Parents' Book Club, Reviewed by S.C. Torrington
"In Raising Our Children to Be Resilient: A Guide to Helping Children Cope with Trauma in Today's World, Ms. Goldman breaks new ground in the Literature of grief and recovery for children. There are many books with good advice on dealing with children's traumas, but this one contains a different kind of advice; namely, teaching our children to become more resilient in order to prevent the traumas from happening in the first place. It should prove to be a useful primer for parents, teachers, therapists, scout leaders, and others who work with children in this time of worry and anxiety. School teachers and counselors should find the discussion of bullying, victimization, and school violence especially helpful. The book spells out how schools, families and communities can come together to head off such behavior before it happens and to form a safety net for children." - Helen Fitzgerald, CT, Training Director, American Hospice Foundation


"Goldman offers a very helpful, thorough, interesting and informative text to enable adults to take grief of children seriously and their capacity for resiliency humbly. Her text is enriched by many illustrations, drawings, pictures and stories created by children as they do the work of grief and demonstrate their resilient strength." - The Forum, Rev. Paul A. Metzler, Reviewer
"Linda Goldman provides a guide for parents and educators to help children cope with trauma and develop resiliency. Compliments to Linda Goldman for writing such a meticulous and user-friendly guide. Raising children to be resilient is a task that requires time, dedication and love." -DEATH - Counseling . Research . Education . Care . Ethics, Volume 29, Number 8, Iphigenia Vavasis, Reviewer
