Summary

"Clearly organized and accessible, the book provides a comprehensive framework for assessing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and other trauma-related symptoms, and for devising a flexible, individualized treatment plan. While the primary theory underlying the model is cognitive-behavioral, the authors also give significant emphasis to developmental factors, the importance of the family system, and humanistic values. Sample scripts, case examples, and troubleshooting tips help the therapist engage children, adolescents, and their parents, and work collaboratively to build and consolidate core skills in such areas as affect regulation and safety. Particular attention is given to ways to tailor treatment to the needs of culturally diverse clients and those with challenging clinical presentations and complex family situations. Useful appendices feature resources, reproducible handouts, and information on obtaining additional training." "This authoritative guide is a vital addition to the clinical libraries of child psychologists and psychiatrists, social workers, and professionals in related fields. It is also a reference for researchers and graduate students interested in child therapy and PTSD."--BOOK JACKET.
