Psalms of the Children: Their Songs and Laments

What are the troubled children saying? How do they feel? What do they think? What is the effect of violence and of physical and emotional abuse on them? What has happened to the souls of children? In her lecture, Dr. Anderson will explore some of the comments, thoughts and feelings – the "Psalms" – of the troubled young people she has treated during her lifetime of practice and research.
