Clinicians Acclaim for "Gentling"
"In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all toooften treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for howto adapt proven post-trauma treatment to the world of a child."
--Michele Rosenthal, HealMyPTSD.com
"Congratulations to Krill when he says that 'being gentle' cannot be over-emphasizedin work with the abused."
--Andrew D. Gibson, PhDAuthor of "Got an Angry Kid? Parenting Spike, A Seriously Difficult Child"
"William Krill's book is greatly needed. PTSD is the most common aftermath of childabuse and often domestic abuse as well. There is a critical scarcity of mental-health professionalswho know how to recognize child abuse, let alone treat it."
--Fr. Heyward B. Ewart, III, Ph.D., St. James the Elder Theological Seminary, author of "AM I BAD? Recovering From Abuse"w
