from the foreword by Babette Rothschild, author of The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment and 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery
K.L. Aspden's marvelous book is a wonderful contribution to helping people of all ages who are suffering from the continuous sounding of [their] survival alarm. With solid information, good humor, engaging cartoons, and helpful suggestions, this small book speaks volumes for helping young and old to heal from trauma.

This is a delightful and accessible book that allows people, especially young people, to understand their feelings and muddles. Illustrated with cartoon-style pictures it enables the reader to picture and process their confusing experiences and learn the triggers before behaviour gets out of control.

There are triggers that can set off a panic attack, stress, or serious anxiety... There are ways to switch off the problem, and one of the greatest strengths of this little book is the explanation of how to do this, with lots of coping strategies... The comic black stick figures that are continually found through the book make a great way to help understand the text, and the text itself is clear and unambiguous. Managing to couple humour with serious information is a talent one doesn't often find, but it is here in abundance. Great for any over-anxious kids.
