Your child has just experienced a distressing event: a bicycle fall, a medical procedure, a frightening encounter with a dog. What do you do? Most of us would try to comfort the child, and then hope for the best.

There is more you can do than just hope, teaches Peter Levine. On It Won't Hurt Forever, Dr. Levine offers his 35 years of expertise in healing emotional trauma to show you a better way to help your child.

Stress researchers now know that after a painful or fearful experience, children may endure such symptoms as unexplainable pain, nightmares, bedwetting, nervousness, aggression, and other problems. Why? Because all animals, including humans, possess a natural physiological process for discharging the energy of such experiences, explains Dr. Levine. When that process is thwarted, a child may suffer long after the event.

Course objectives:

  • Utilize awareness of the feeling states the body undergoes when stressed
  • Describe how to fluidly move from a state of stress back to wholeness
  • Apply the tools to creatively express emotions
  • Explain how to prepare a child for surgery and reduce a procedure's traumatic effects
  • Apply the skills of using rhymes and stories to prevent and heal trauma

Now, with this groundbreaking audio-learning program for parents and caretakers, you can gain the skills you need to help a child recover from frightening events in a healthier, more natural way using the body's own healing mechanisms.

Children possess the innate ability to respond and recover from potentially traumatic circumstances. With It Won't Hurt Forever, you will learn how to activate this priceless resource within any child in need.

Includes 18-page study guide and 10 full-color illustrations.
