The authors have correctly drawn upon some of the most carefully studied trauma effects. Much of the best research has been supported by our nation's Center for Disease Control, which is trying to reduce the costs to taxpayers that result from adverse childhood experiences. The agency (The Children's Psychological Health Center) I direct has 40 volunteer mental health volunteers ready to assess whether or not damage has already occurred to the children's psychological health due to governmental policy of separating the children from parents. We can make recommendations of how to help if there is damage. Gaining access to the children has been obstructed, even for U.S. legislators.
