For too many traumatized children and their families, chronic stressors such as poverty, substance abuse, and family or community violence—coupled with an overburdened care system—pose seemingly insurmountable barriers to treatment. This empowering book provides a user-friendly blueprint for making the most of limited resources to help those considered the “toughest cases.” Evidence-based strategies are presented for effectively integrating individualized treatment with services at the home, school, and community levels. Written in an accessible, modular format with reproducible forms and step-by-step guidelines for assessment and intervention, the approach is grounded in the latest knowledge about child traumatic stress. It has been recognized as a treatment of choice by state mental health agencies nationwide.

"Trauma Systems Therapy (TST) provides a theoretical rationale for integrating various systems and providing case management and advocacy services when needed. The treatment model covers a wide therapeutic scope: from primary safety issues to innovative ideas for working with highly traumatized children. The authors clearly demonstrate their in-depth understanding of the community mental health setting and the types of barriers clinicians face. Presenting a wealth of information on how to implement the model, this book is an excellent training tool for graduate students, interns, and seasoned clinicians." - Lisa Amaya-Jackson, UCLA-Duke National Center for Child Traumatic Stress, USA
"This impressive work, representing a collaboration of child psychiatry and psychology, exemplifies the next generation of treatment manuals. The authors' approach goes beyond a narrow focus on psychopathology to encompass the social, interpersonal, and environmental contexts in which it occurs. The book incorporates the latest thinking on everything from the neurobiological effects of trauma to the disorganized social systems that may exacerbate these effects. This clearly outlined, step-by-step treatment approach will be invaluable for all clinicians dealing with trauma in the difficult social contexts where it most often occurs. Every child clinician will want to be familiar with this approach." - David H. Barlow, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University, USA
"A valuable resource that strikes the balance well between just the right amount of jargon-free theory and maintaining its focus on practical issues. The book is friendly and easy to read... Here is a book that offers a model that moves theory to practice in order to help all of us who endeavour to treat, support, and care for traumatised children and adolescents." - Counselling Children and Young PeopleAbout the Author:
