“Their clinical model; Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents and Parents (SITCAP) relies upon structured sensory interventions for working with this clinical population. It is time-limited in nature, employs multiple therapeutic modalities (individual sessions, groups, and adjunctive work with parents), and is informed by several different theoretical systems. . . clients are led through a series of structured clinical exercises designed to promote normalization, mastery, and integration of the trauma. . . Finally, the authors report detailed results of several research studies involving the SITCAP model, and offer compelling data attesting to its clinical efficacy. With the publication of this book, William Steele and Melvyn Raider have performed a valuable service both to young trauma victims and to the professionals who work with them.” – Jerrold R.
