Lizzy Lives In An Angry House: Learning to Thrive In the Midst of an Angry Environment

by Karen Addison MSPH

This resource will help children and families make sense of an angry parent, show how to love them and still be able to stand/speak up, and teach ways to keep themselves safe. It is one of few resources that speaks about verbal and emotional abuse from a child's perspective. Addison has children who have experienced abuse share their feelings and what works in helping them heal and overcome.
