It gives information about the brain that is clear and easily understood among elementary, middle and high school age children.

Filled with quotes and exercises, children share their personal feelings about living with a parent who has a brain injury and what life is like at home. This honest and insightful book with colorful graphics is an essential tool to help children cope. The needs of young people are often the forgotten as families struggle to rebuild their lives after a parent has a brain injury. At a time of trauma and uncertainty, they frequently feel upset, confused and excluded from the information loop.

It provides information to reassure young people about the wide range of feelings they might be experiencing as well as strategies to help them deal with these emotions. It addresses that most difficult and frequent question of How can I help our children understand what has happened? How can I help them now? This book has been written in a clear and colorful way that will appeal to young people across a wide range of ages. The numerous quotes, graphics and exercises make it engaging for readers. It can be used as a stand alone resource or to support individual or group work in clinical or home settings.
