    Here you will meet several children helped by Cornerstone who suffered from tragic losses and tragic circumstances. This chapter is essentially practical in its orientation to technique, describing several forms of treatment of bereaved children, with a minimum of theoretical essay. Probably the best definition of "mourning" for our current purposes is, "the totality of reaction to the loss of a loved object."

    Laura Streyffeler Mental Health Expert PhotoLaura Streyffeler, PhD, is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress specializing in individual, couples and family psychotherapy.

    Dr. Streyffeler believes that an being an expert means not only having education, knowledge, and experience , but integrity as well. She wants for you to understand that being an expert in domestic violence, does not mean being an expert only for victims, but for truth.

    As an expert, Dr. Streyffeler is able to discern between those who are truly victims and those who are claiming to be victims in order to get a ‘leg up’ in the court process. Sadly, all too often non-victims use domestic violence allegations, when going through a divorce (or other legal matter), in order to manipulate the court (i.e. attorneys, mental health professionals/ parenting evaluators, judicial outcome).

    “Guns for hire” are not experts. They are people who use their credentials and experience to financially prey on those struggling in the legal system. “Guns for hire” often make sure that their opinion matches the retainer, even if it doesn’t fully match the facts. Dr. Streyffeler will only accept cases that she believes her expert testimony (and/or consultation) will bring justice, not just dollars.

    Dr. Streyffeler provides both forensic and victim related expert witness testimony in both and criminal and civil court cases. She has provided trial consulting services to the State Attorney offices throughout Florida. She has testified and consulted in battery and murder cases on the issue of Domestic Violence, Battered Spouse Syndrome, and/or Sexual Violence. Dr. Streyffeler has also provided forensic services in civil court cases on behalf of numerous victims of domestic violence who are or have been victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

    In addition to being a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress and a Diplomate of the National Center of Crisis Management, in Collaboration with the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, Dr. Streyffeler is certified as an expert in both domestic violence and forensic counseling by the National Association of Forensic Counselors.

    Dr. Streyffeler is listed as an expert witness in domestic violence, sexual violence, and trauma in the National Center for Crisis Management in Collaboration with the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress list of experts.

    Let's face it. Raising kids can be tough. You know, when you buy a new car, you get an owner's manual that tells you what to do if there's a problem. Well, when you take your newborn home from the hospital, they don't give you a manual that tells you what to do if thereare some behavior problems. And kids are a way more complicated than cars. Way, way more.

    Kevin Passer, MD
    This book demonstrates not that the way to raise children has changed, but that it has always been and remains based on logic and common sense. This short book points out three principles, and only three principles, that enable a parent to handle pretty much any situation with consistency and logic, and with excellent results. It is not just an easy and enjoyable read, but, written by a pediatric psychiatrist, it is backed with expertise. It lays out what we all know from our own experiences and thought processes in a way that makes a parent think, "well, of course that would be the best way to handle this problem." Since it resonates so effectively with what we already know, it becomes easy to follow the rules and be consistent.
