"This vivid, raw and haunting account of children caught in the crosshairs indeed gives voice to the voiceless, as Robinson intended. It’s a clear-eyed, intimate peek behind a disturbing curtain of abusive family behaviors that offers no easy answers...Devastating in content, it should be read by all as a wake-up call toward prevention."

Synopsis

The Silenced Child is based on Dr Robinson's experiences. It is not based on specific cases but a compilation of spellbinding experiences that were put together to create this book to give the child a voice. It is based on facts but no one patient's case were used to portray these attention-grabbing stories. It was various fascinating experiences that were put together to explain what children go through during daily life. This book reads as a journey of what children has gone through and is a collection of enthralling stories that shows the trauma our society is letting our children live by. The book has been written to be an easy, non-complicated read that holds the reader by mesmerizing the reader with powerful stories about children's pain and suffering. The intensity is balanced with how Dr Robinson from a young student to a well-known name in the field of psychology had to cope with what she was faced with on a daily basis starting of as a 17 year old student at Stellenbosch University and through her years of therapy in private practice.
