Book Review of The Child Survivor, Second Edition

​By Eva T. Young

Published online Jan 20, 2023

"It takes a bold and delicate hand, a knowledgeable mind, and a compassionate soul to write about the unfathomable while keeping the reader engaged and able to reflect on the unthinkable. This is the brilliance of Joyanna Silberg’s The Child Survivor: Healing Developmental Trauma and Dissociation (2nd edition). The Child Survivor gives clinicians a comprehensive look at the impact of developmental trauma and offers practical concepts, theories and techniques for therapists at every level of expertise.[...]"

"It is easy to say that this book is a must read. It is, of course, for child therapists. But it is a must read as well for adult clinicians because it speaks about the traumatized children the adult clients have been and for whom their inner child parts are a vivid testimony. Adult therapists will find not only new ways to understand their clients’ difficulties but also new, creative, and human ways to help them heal."
