Patchwork - children, trauma and therapy / Miriam Grossman-Harel
מבוא- פרופ' מולי להד
Miriam Harel's book is a pioneer exploration of the creation of resilience in infants, children, and their families living in modern israel. The chapters move well from children's adaptation to kibbutz life, to the more traumatic accommodations to war and the intifada.In each instance harel offers insights, therapeutic object lessons for clinicians,caregivers and interveners. The book is an exceptional reading experience.

In"Patchwork", Miriam Grossman Harel permits us to see the trauma children suffer living in a world with the constant sense of danger, the threat of violence, and violence witnessed.Through her caring and highly expert therapeutic work, many children have gradually come to renew their confidence in the adult world to protect and in their own capacity to cope.
