I couldn’t put this book down once I received it! Truly an incredible read. I would recommend this one to anyone who has had trouble communicating or relating to a person who might have had trauma from past experiences or has had trauma in their life. This book has given me new insight in how to communicate and cope with both people around me and how to effectively communicate with those close to me. A must read.

This book is wonderful for helping understand how to handle a conversation on people who have had trauma. I had a copy myself and got this one for a client because I know she wants help navigating the situation with her son.
