The Boy Who Was Raised As a Dog, and Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist’s Notebook: What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing is a book worthy of such a hefty title. Dr. Bruce Perry writes, in conjunction with journalist Maia Szalavitz, about some of the most distinctive cases that he has worked over his years as a child psychiatrist. In the process, Perry makes powerful arguments for early intervention in the lives of traumatized children, and gives many insights into working with troubled people of all ages. There are some tremendously sad stories contained within these pages. Even so the reader’s eyes are opened to a great number of things that can be immensely helpful.

Anyone who works with children, particularly children who have behavioral issues, should read this book. It is informative, well-written, and enlightening.
