«How can parents talk with their children about unspeakable terrorist attacks? How can they help them make sense of actions that most of us find irrational? How can they comfort them despite the perception of ongoing threat? In 'What is terrorism?', world-renowned clinical psychologists have distilled wisdom from decades of work with children and families to answer these topical questions... 'What is Terrorism?' is a highly accessible book that empowers parents and carers to support children after terrorist attacks.»

«This book succeeds in doing a difficult and vital job: explaining a particularly frightening phenomenon to children in a way that's fair and in language that's understandable. Having read or listened to the book, children will feel clearer and less scared. Carers and professionals will, in turn, feel more confident about having the conversations that really matter.»

«<p>The authors do an excellent job transforming scary concepts into clear and candid explanations so they are much less frightening to children. A section for children provides practical coping skills to manage worries of dramatic news. Another section equips teachers, parents and other adults to answer tough questions while providing<br />much needed reassurance.</p>»
