Reviews

“. . . fills a void in the child and adolescent trauma treatment literature. It promises to be a frequently utilized book in the libraries of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, school personnel and other mental health professionals who encounter traumatized children and their families. The adaptability of the model is one of its greatest strengths as it can be used in a variety of settings.” – Marquita Bedway, PhD, Pediatric Psychologist and Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatric and Behavioral Neurosciences, Wayne State University; Co-director of the ADHD Life Span Center.

“This book is trenchant in its presentation. It is an excellent and accessible way to introduce clinicians to the intricacies and significant relationship between narrative and healing. It is a must for those who work in the field every day hoping to positively impact the lives of the individuals with whom they work on a daily basis.” – Cassandra J. Bowers, PhD, Coordinator of B.S.W. Program, School of Social Work, Wayne State University
