    One thought on “Too Scared To Cry: Psychic Trauma In Childhood”

    1. Pretty good considering it was one of the first books in the field. That gave it an extra star. I wish it had more scientific data to back up some of her more outrageous assertions. I completely disagree with the author's statement towards the end of the book that it is still important for children to have contact with their parents even if they have been sexually abused by them. She laid out the importance of other family members chaperoning and keeping the child's best interest in mind fucking [...]

    2. The insightful parts of this book are when she's observing the behavior of traumatized children, especially the group kidnapped on the bus. The less good parts deal with repressed memory, and the book's 1980's age really shows there. The bad parts of the book read like the papers of a frustrated english student where she draws conclusions about a particular author's childhood trauma from fictional works.

    3. A very interesting and well-written book. Was inspired to read after reading a post-apocalyptic novel involving children, to see how accurately childhood trauma had been portrayed. Still, this is also a horrifying read that I would not recommend to the faint of heart, particularly as the violence in it has really happened.

    4. While there are some really interesting arguments and anecdotes in this book. The woman who wrote it is largely an idiot. The book is riddled with assumptions that have no fact basis, and speculations based on classic artwork. Parts of it are just hard to get through.

    5. I want to give this 4 or 5 stars but the reason I am giving 3 star instead is because the topic is fascinating, and yes, this case study is immensely interesting as well. The execution of the research was well done I felt, the book well written However, they took this important issue in society; this topic which we need to understand so much more about so we can apply it when working with traumatized individuals. The younger a traumatized soul is helped and not left to suffer in their own trauma [...]

    6. this book scared the living daylights out of me. terrifying descriptions of childhood trauma and unresolved PTSD = real life horror. children experience trauma constantly all around us, and reenact it into adulthood while adults compound it by turning a blind eye. I agree that the author could have included citations for credibility- it is anecdotal and reads like a novel. still found it incredibly insightful and could not put it down, even though I had to turn on all the lights in the house. ma [...]

    7. This is a very difficult book to read because it's so heavily doctored to be read as a novel that I don't believe for a moment that what Lenore Terr quotes these children as saying are actually the words that came from their mouths. A great deal of her research, if it can suitably be called that as this book is not at all written as a documented study, is based upon satanic rituals and pseudo-scientific methods of psychological and psychiatric treatments.Additionally, Lenore Terr abides by a gre [...]

    8. I read this book to help me as I work with many traumatized children. I would caution anyone interested in reading this book. It contains disturbing descriptions of physical and sexual abuse and other physical trauma to children. It is not a pleasant read. However, I learned so much about the nature of trauma and how it affects children; and how childhood trauma can affect individuals and entire families throughout their lives. The author was interested in how trauma affected children, but there [...]

    9. This is a comparatively early work on the effects of trauma in childre. I have found that it goes into details of the lives of traumatized children in a way that other books do not, and it's helpful that it considers a wide range of traumas in children of different ages and backgrounds. It's amazing to think just how little was known about childhood trauma when the author wrote it. Things have advanced since then, but not by as much as one would hope.I was somewhat bothered by the mixing of fict [...]

    10. A very accessible overview of the role of trauma in child mental health services. The book also covers the (not always adequate) treatment and understanding of trauma and its aftereffects. Terr takes as her starting point a group of children (and one adult) who were taken from a schoolbus at gunpoint, buried alive, and were rescued by two members of the group -- children who were barely adolescents. She also includes case information from her practice of children who were accident victims, witne [...]

    11. I'm glad Terr decided to document her experiences analyzing trauma victims, for others to learn from. She does a wonderful job explaining the details of real cases (names and locations changed) for the public to understand. I liked the explanations about autonomy and how it can be damaged Of course, it was depressing; I only got half way through the book-- but I can be sensitive to dark, sad things.If you want to learn about psychological trauma or child psychology, this is a good start. It's ea [...]

    12. Hokey at times, but I really enjoyed the tie ins to the world of literature and art that Terr uses to illustrate her point Poe's terror at his mother's dramatic TB death, Wharton's ghastly encounter with a sanitarium doctor, Magritte's mother's suicide by drowning. Felt like a good book to recommend to fellow clinicians or teachers, or really anyone interested in the psychology of trauma.

    13. This book provides fabulous insight into the long-term effects of trauma on children. Terr presents her longitudinal study of a group of children hijacked while on a school bus and left to die. This is a great resource for clinicians wanting to understand the experiences of children who have been traumatized. Also, several suggestions for treatment with this population were given.

    14. The first book I read that told me what I wanted to do as a career. Focuses on the reactions of a group of kids and their families after the kids were kidnapped on the school bus and subsequently buried. Pretty accessible for a psychology non-fiction research study based book. Plus, the title is a perfect descriptor for the kiddos with whom I work.

    15. This is a great book for anyone who wishes to understand childhood trauma. Despite the nature of the topic being academic and by all means a bit uncomfortable to discuss Lenore Terr's writing style manages to make it a very engaging read.

    16. This is a great psychology read that shows the impact of childhood trauma permeating older generations (as the children age). I read it for a graduate level class; however, this is a good read for everyone.

    17. Very interestingng account of the effects of childhood trauma, but really about how trauma affects us all, hmmm.

    18. This is one of the best books for understanding the child (& adult) brain as it processes trauma and stores memory.

    19. The author is an expert trauma child psychiatrist who I saw lecture. The book has been fascinating so far, but has given me wierd dreams!!

    20. One of my mother's favourites. She's constantly referring to it. Looks scary to me. Real life horror. Maybe one day, when I'm feeling brave.
