Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders in Children and Adolescents : Scientific Foundations and Therapeutic Models, Paperback / softback Book

Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders in Children and Adolescents : Scientific Foundations and Therapeutic Models Paperback / softback

Edited by Julian D. (University of Connecticut Health Center, USA) Ford, Christine A. (PhD, ABPP, private practice (retired), Washington, DC) Courtois

Description

With contributions from prominent experts, this pragmatic book takes a close look at the nature of complex psychological trauma in children and adolescents and the clinical challenges it presents.

Each chapter shows how a complex trauma perspective can provide an invaluable unifying framework for case conceptualization, assessment, and intervention amidst the chaos and turmoil of these young patients' lives.

A range of evidence-based and promising therapies are reviewed and illustrated with vivid case vignettes.

The volume is grounded in clinical innovations and cutting-edge research on child and adolescent brain development, attachment, and emotion regulation, and discusses diagnostic criteria, including those from DSM-IV and DSM-5. See also Drs. Courtois and Ford's edited volume Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders (Adults) and their authored volume, Treatment of Complex Trauma: A Sequenced, Relationship-Based Approach.
