    Ask BR: Any Suggestions for an 8-Year-Old Who Was Recently Almost Hit by a Fast-Moving Truck?

    I am looking for Guided Imagery for an 8-year-old girl who is now living with her Grandparents. Her mother is severely mentally ill and this child suffered multiple traumatic experiences while in her care.
