Hélène Romano is, today, a part of a movement of practitioners’ research that explains that an event will have different effects depending on the age, the his- tory and especially the family and cultural context of the injured party. Drawing on her 20 years of in-the-field experience with emergency responders, this practitioner researcher presents a clear picture of what trauma- tised children are and how one can help them pick up the pieces of their lives. She gives a complete and open analysis of the changing picture as opposed to the sectarian spirit of some older publications. Moreover, Romano’s book is a pleasure to read, well illustrated with vignettes that make it easy to understand ideas that one thought abstract!
