Audio Book Summary

A renowned psychiatrist reveals how trauma affects children-and outlines the path to recovery'Fascinating and upbeat....Dr. Perry is both a world-class creative scientist and a compassionate therapist.' (Mary Pipher, PhD)
How does trauma affect a child's mind--and how can that mind recover? In the classic The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, Dr. Perry explains what happens to the brains of children exposed to extreme stress and shares their lessons of courage, humanity, and hope. Only when we understand the science of the mind and the power of love and nurturing, can we hope to heal the spirit of even the most wounded child.

    Warning: some of the stories are extremely painful and traumatic to listen to, listeners discretion is advised. A must-listen if you want to know how common childhood abuse is and to what extent some of the kids have to go through just to survive...yet with a little help and the right trauma-based therapy, those innocent souls have the resilience to heal. I want to thank Dr. Bruce Perry and all other people who are working to make the world a better place for future generations.

    Amazing book. Hard in places, but not as emotionally hard as I anticipated. It really illuminates maladaption and psychopathology in a fascinating way. My 13 yo psychology-obsessed kid loved it too!
