Description
Are children and adolescents being silenced and their growth stunted in the age of quick diagnoses and overmedication? In The Silenced Child, Dr. Claudia Gold shows the tremendous power of listening in parent/child and doctor/patient relationships. Through vivid stories, perceptive insights, and new research, she shows the way children grow from these relationships and how being heard actually changes their brains. She helps both parents and caregivers make the time and space for listening.
