A Practical Approach to Trauma
Empowering Interventions



April 2007 | 384 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book's intent is to increase our understanding of the field of trauma, shape practice with both traumatized and non-traumatized people, and increase our understanding of the impact of extreme stress and violence on the human psyche.

A Practical Approach to Trauma: Empowering Interventions discusses a brief overview of the field of trauma that includes a history of the field, current theoretical perspectives and methods that provide a paradigm for stage appropriate, culture-based therapy which can be integrated into existing therapeutic orientations. Individual approaches in trauma intervention are included, focusing on specific situations such as rape, domestic violence, child sexual abuse, group interventions, school counseling and secondary traumatization care for practitioners.
