"The first edition of this book was written in response to the proliferation of research on psychological trauma, along with the growing need for scientifically based evaluation of posttraumatic disturbance and its assessment. The second edition updates and expands on this endeavor. It reviews in detail a number of new trauma-relevant tests that have become available since the last edition and discusses a variety of critical issues associated with trauma-relevant DSM-IV (American Psychiatric Association, 2000) diagnoses. Also included in this second edition is information on additional forms of trauma (e.g., mass violence against noncombatants, including the terrorist attacks of September 2001; life-threatening illness and medical procedures; stalking; and sex trafficking), as well as added material on acute stress responses, complicated grief reactions, adjustment disorders, posttraumatic depression, panic disorder, trauma-related psychosis, "culture-bound" stress responses, peritraumatic dissociation and other dissociative responses, and complex posttraumatic syndromes. In addition, this edition includes a brief analysis of "assault syndromes" (e.g., rape trauma syndrome and battered woman syndrome) as they relate to trauma assessment in forensic contexts. This book devotes considerable attention to different forms of trauma exposure and describes in detail the full range of potential posttraumatic responses. In addition, the reference section is relatively extensive. Although children also experience a variety of difficulties in response to major stressors, this book is limited to adult posttraumatic responses--Intro.

This volume provides an overview of the research describing the effects of child maltreatment on mental health, cognitive and social-emotional development. It offers descriptions of selected empirically based treatments (EBTs) written by scholars associated with its development, training, or research on its effectiveness. Each contributor presents the theoretical foundation of the EBT and evidence of its efficacy, describes the treatment process and illustrates this process with a case study of its use with a maltreated child, and discusses possible limitations. Following the chapters describing the interventions, the editors address key issues of the dissemination and implementation of these EBTs. They describe the strategies the selected interventions have used to ensure treatment fidelity in training and dissemination from the perspective of implementation science’s core components of implementation. The challenges of implementing EBTs, and the difficulty of fitting protocol to the reality of clinical practice in community mental health settings are also discussed. This volume offers a central source of information for students and practitioners who are seeking effective interventions to address problems associated with child maltreatment.

Strategic Interventions for People in Crisis, Trauma, and Disaster enables therapists to walk into difficult situations with a thorough understanding of interactional dynamics and a plan of action. With the stressful turbulence of our present culture, more and more clinicians are called upon to intervene in crisis situations. Violent interactions, once considered rare or beyond the province of the therapist, have become familiar events to many practitioners. This volume provides them with both the theoretical background and practical techniques to help people learn from crisis experiences and move toward change and growth. Of special interest are practical guidelines and specific intervention strategies for conducting psychotherapy with different types of violent persons and of victims. Treatment principles for each crisis situation are then illustrated in detailed case studies. As the authors demonstrate, with these troubled people a therapist must be ready to make quick decisions, draw upon all available resources from the family and community, and offer continuing support as traumas are worked through and new behavior patterns are learned. In addition, the authors discuss the legal and ethical responsibilities of the therapist.

In Treating Complex Trauma, renowned clinicians Mary Jo Barrett and Linda Stone Fish present the Collaborative Change Model (CCM), a clinically evaluated model that facilitates client and practitioner collaboration and provides invaluable tools for clients struggling with the impact and effects of complex trauma. A practical guide, Treating Complex Trauma organizes clinical theory, outcome research, and decades of experiential wisdom into a manageable blueprint for treatment. With an emphasis on relationships, the model helps clients move from survival mindstates to engaged mindstates, and as a sequential and organized model, the CCM can be used by helping professionals in a wide array of disciplines and settings. Utilization of the CCM in collaboration with clients and other trauma-informed practitioners helps prevent the re-traumatization of clients and the compassion fatigue of the practitioner so that they can work together to build a hopeful and meaningful vision of the future.
