Description: This is the book that clinicians and educators concerned with child traumatic stress have been waiting for! Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the clear 'best-practice' treatment for traumatized children and their families. This book describes this evidence-based treatment approach in a pragmatic manner that every clinician will appreciate. I found the extensive use of case examples and the answers to common clinical questions to be particularly valuable. This book should be read by every therapist and every student working with traumatized children and their families."Benjamin E. Saunders, PhD, National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina "For therapists treating children affected by trauma, this is a 'must-have' book.
