Amanda's Fall

Amanda’s Fall

Reviewed by Lydia Dehning (age 6) for Reader Views Kids (3/20)
Amanda’s Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by Kelly Bouldin Darmofal is the story of a little girl named Amanda who is at school in first grade. Amanda likes to play with her friends outside at recess, they like to pretend like they are horses. One day at recess, Amanda rolls down a hill and hits her head on a rock.

I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

Amanda can’t see the teacher well, she can’t talk to her well, and she starts to shake. Amanda gets taken to the hospital and her parents come, too. At the hospital, Amanda learns that she had a concussion, which is when your head gets hits really hard and your brain moves around. Amanda will have to be careful as she grows up because her concussion might cause problems for her at school. She will also need to be really careful with her head by wearing a helmet while riding her bike and when playing sports like baseball or t-ball. I hope I never get a concussion, and I’ll protect my head by wearing a helmet while I ride my bike and be careful when I play. I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

A Note from Mom: Lydia didn’t know anything about concussions or hurting your head. From “Amanda’s Fall,” I think she is able to picture what’s going on easier now than if I were to explain it to her. Coming from an author who has experienced a severe head injury, she presented the information appropriately for her target audience. I also like the extra resources in the back of the book, such as symptoms of a concussion and facts about brain injuries. A well-done book

Person-Centered Techniques put You Back in Control of Your Destiny

Metapsychology is the science of human nature and experience as viewed by you--the one who experiences--from the inside out, not by an outside "expert" trying to look in. The methods of "Applied Metapsychology" recognize you as the authority at the center of your world of experience, and provide tools to enable you to improve personal relationships, increase personal power, and fashion your world into the loving, fascinating, and fulfilling place you always wanted it to be.

Readers of this book will learn...

  • The principles and methodology of Applied Metapsychology, a truly effective method for understanding yourself, your own mind, and your world of experience.
  • The principles of Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), a technique for resolving the traumatic incidents that build upon each other to produce a network of distress that can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) .
  • Specific other techniques to help you address the issues which concern you most--relationships, job satisfaction, and unwanted emotions such as grief and anger.
  • A systematic method of case-planning for designing coherent and effective strategies for achieving these ends in a relatively short period of time.
