We often hear about how depression destroys lives, this book shows that Lincoln may have been able to achieve such great things because he had depression, not inspite of it.

For decades therapists have struggled to heal the wounds of trauma. EMDR offers a new approach that is throughly researched in peer reviewed journals. EMDR offers some incredibly hopefully stories of people who have used the techniques to heal significant psychological wounds in their life. This is not just a book for therapists it is a book for everyone. EMDR can be a really powerful tool but some of the short timelines of recovery may be overly optimistic.

Well researched

Many parents reading this will think, finally someone gets it. The book is advertised as a book about FASD, their son Peter has far more than this. Most children with FASD will not be there severe, but the book will be a helpful guide to many none the less. When Rain Hurts honestly shows the challenges of raising a child with severe behavioral difficulties. The book shows the need for the involvement of multiple professionals and ultimately ends with their son making great progress.

Excellent research and very funny

This book offers an extraordinary journey into how touch affects our lives. Safe touch is essential to our wellbeing but it is becoming less utilized in the modern world.

This book raises some really important questions that examine the wider causes of depression. However I felt the author took what could be a fascinating topic and presented it in a cold clinical way, others may disagree.

I highly reccomend this book to anyone in the fields of psychology, counseling or medicine. It is a complex book, but the depth of understanding that you will gain from this is well worth the effort it takes to read it. It will revolutionize your understanding of anxiety and trauma.

This is a valuable book for those in health and safety, the ideas are important. I felt the examples and the way this was explained could have been stronger.

There are some parts of this book that will give helpful insights for many parents. However the book fails to look at other significant causes of motor issues such as the effects of trauma, soldiers with PTSD often have the exact behaviours described in this book. See the Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk for more detail. Also the suggestion that if it is true sensory processing disorder it can be "fixed" within a few weeks or months of therapy may be very unrealistic.
