Making Sense of Aggression
Aggression is one of the oldest and most challenging of human problems. Dr. Neufeld exposes it’s deep developmental roots, revealing why conventional approaches to the problem are so ineffective. There are many indications this troubling phenomena is escalating among our children and youth. What tends to grab out attention is the more violating acts of aggression but what is truly alarming is the ground swell of attacking energy within and between our kids that erupts in their interaction, music, language, play, games and fantasies. This attacking energy is also fuelling an alarming increase in suicide and suicidal ideation among children. Dr. Neufeld provides a way of understanding that not only explains what is happening around us but also provides insight into the individuals–both children and adults–who present with these problems and points to a way through. His approach is refreshingly sensible, historically accountable, and congruent with today’s brain science. His conceptual model has clear implications for practice and treatment and is applicable in any arena: home, school, or in treatment.
