Breakthrough Treatment Offers New Hope for Recovery


Gentling represents a new paradigm in the therapeutic approach to children who have
experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse and have acquired Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder as a result. This text redefines PTSD in child abuse survivors by identifying
child-specific behavioral signs commonly seen, and offers a means to individualize
treatment and measure therapeutic outcomes through understanding each suffering
child's unique symptom profile. The practical and easily understood Gentling approaches
and techniques can be easily learned by clinicians, parents, foster parents, teachers and
all other care givers of these children to effect real and lasting healing. With this book,
you will:
  • Learn child-specific signs of PTSD in abused children
  • Learn how to manage the often intense reactivity seen in stress episodes
  • Gain the practical, gentle, and effective treatment tools that really help these children
  • Use the Child Stress Profile (CSP) to guide treatment and measure outcomes
  • Deploy handy 'Quick Teach Sheets' that can be copied and handed to foster parents,
    teachers, and social workers


    Clinicians Acclaim for Gentling


    "In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all too
    often treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for how
    to 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-emphasized
    in work with the abused."
    --Andrew D. Gibson, PhD
    Author 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 child
    abuse and often domestic abuse as well. There is a critical scarcity of mental-health professionals
    who 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 Abusew
