Broken Three Times
Written by the Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress Research Director, Joan Kaufman, Broken Three Times is a story about child abuse in America. It begins with snapshots from a mother's abusive childhood, then fast-forwards to her family's first involvement with Connecticut protective services when her children are eleven and ten. Each chapter of the book provides a launching point for discussing state-of-the-art policy, practice, and scientific updates relevant for understanding risk, promoting resilience, and improving the child welfare system.
John Fairbank, Co-Director of the UCLA-Duke University National Center for Child Traumatic Stress states, "Kaufman seamlessly links her authentic, compelling, and riveting case history of one family's journey through the US child welfare system to the underlying research in neuroscience, epidemiology, and evidence-based practice. I highly recommend this powerful clinical, scientific, and policy page-turner to all concerned with improving services for children and families who have experienced trauma."
Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress Yoga-Based Psychotherapy Group Manual
The Yoga-Based Psychotherapy Group (YBPG) protocol was developed by the Mind/Body Clinic at the Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress at Kennedy Krieger Institute for children 8-12 years old who have been abused, neglected, exposed to violence or at-risk for experiencing trauma.
The YBPG Manual is intended for mental health and health care professionals, yoga teachers and teachers in academic settings. A literature review, the 14-week protocol for facilitating YBPG, weekly yoga practices for group participants and handouts are included in the 96-page manual.
The Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress was a recipient of a SAMHSA Grant 2007-2012 which in part supported this project. The cost of the YBPG Manual is $39.95 and shipping. To order, complete and submit the below order form using the shipping cost sheet to fill in the shipping amount.
