PsychCentral: Treating the Traumatized Child Book Review
Human beings are social creatures and trauma is rooted in the relationships we develop. Treating The Traumatized Child offers a comprehensive and strategic approach to move trauma into the relational realm where the family system — not the symptomatic individual — becomes the focus of treatment, and where healing the relationships, systems, and structure of the family forms the basis of recovery. It is a book that should be required reading for any therapist treating trauma.
