In community with other educators, discuss the book, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist's Notebook -- What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing by Bruce Perry and Maia Szalavitz.

From the publisher's website: "What happens when a young brain is traumatized? How does terror, abuse, or disaster affect a child’s mind — and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Dr. Bruce D. Perry has helped children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, murder witnesses, kidnapped teenagers, and victims of family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, Dr. Perry tells their stories of trauma and transformation through the lens of science, revealing the brain’s astonishing capacity for healing."

This six-week virtual book study meets every Wednesday evening and there are other optional opportunities to engage deeper and earn additional PDUs.

This book study is free as a benefit of your membership. Participants are responsible for borrowing the book from a library or purchasing the book.
