REGISTRATION REQUIRED – All book discussion sign-ups announced at the beginning of the semester on the Honors listserv

  • Book: THE BOY WHO WAS RAISED BY A DOG by Bruce Perry and Maia Szalavitz
  • Discussion Leader: Dr. Janet Frick, Associate Professor of Psychology
  • Date: Thursday, April 4, 6:00-8:00pm
  • Location: Moore Hall 116
  • Description: How does trauma 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. The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog tells their stories of trauma and transformation and shares their lessons of courage, humanity, and hope. Combining unforgettable case histories with his own compassionate, insightful strategies for rehabilitation, Perry explains what happens to children’s brains when they are exposed to extreme stress—and reveals the unexpected measures that can be taken to ease such pain and help them grow into healthy adults. Only when we understand the science of the mind and the power of love and nurturing can we hope to heal the spirit of even the most wounded child.
