Helping Children Work Through Trauma In Sri Lanka A Guide for Caregivers
: "Compassionate response from the global community has brought much attention to the needs of children affected by the tsunami and its aftermath. This basic manual is intended to provide support to caregivers who wish to address the specific needs of children during the six-month period following the event. Much more can be said, and certainly much more has been written about trauma and children than is mentioned in this guide. Many resources are available to families and professionals, but few take into consideration the underlying cultural needs of this gentle nation. After a great deal of time in discussion with community leaders, local teachers, parents and caregivers as well as considering the many different spiritual traditions of this unique culture, this guide has been assembled as a prelude to an ongoing effort to support Sri Lanka in the months and years ahead.
With the deepest respect, I hope this guide will be of value to every child and caregiver now and in future generations. ----William Spear of Fortunate Blessing Foundation
