Attachment-Focused Trauma Treatment for Children and Adolescents: Phase-Oriented Strategies for Addressing Complex Trauma Disorders


Product Description

Published USA, 2015
This book, by an author who is an active member of the ISST-D, brings together two very important models: phase-oriented psychotherapy - which has been the predominant approach taken in the treatment of complex trauma in adult survivors of childhood abuse - and attachment-informed psychotherapy, which is rapidly becoming the predominant approach in the treatment of children with complex trauma histories. How these models work in the therapy room, in the real world, with real children and their families is the focus of this book. The author offers insight into the complex and often puzzling ways that trauma affects regulation, relating and behaviour. She provides numerous practical suggestions for stabilization and intervention that can be applicable to clinicians. An appendix of photocopiable worksheets gives interactive tools for therapists to immediately use with clients.
