Book study - The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog

This book study is ideal for those who would like to develop a much deeper understanding of child trauma through a clinical lens. The Boy Who Was Raised As a Dog is a book written by Bruce Perry, a leading clinical researcher into the impacts of trauma on children. Our study will connect Perry's clinical insights to our classroom practice. 

Book study format: 5 weeks, approx 50-60 pages per week. Asynchronous discussion online with 1 “live” Q&A webinar on July 24, 7:00-8:00 pm EDT


 *Please note*  - this book contains many graphic and disturbing descriptions of child abuse - part of our discussion format will include paying attention to the feelings and emotions this reading elicits.
