Becoming A Superhero provides young children specific coping skills that will build their sense of resiliency and reduce PTSD symptoms. This book can be used both as prevention and intervention when working with children who have experienced a traumatic event. Becoming A Superhero is based on proven, research based techniques such as psychoeducation about trauma and emotion identification, the development of coping skills and affect regulation, and mindfulness activities. These components are based on cognitive and behavioral interventions such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, TARGET-Trauma, and Affect Regulation, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Becoming A Superhero includes bibliotherapy techniques that have been identified by research to help the book be more attractive and useful to children. A separate chapter provides methods of adapting this book to the child’s developmental level and alternative skill-building activities. Becoming A Superhero is an excellent way to open a discussion between the therapist, the parent, and the child.
