Treating Traumatic Stress in Children and Adolescents 2nd Edition
How to Foster Resilience through Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency
By: Margaret E. Blaustein and Kristine M. Kinniburgh
Tens of thousands of clinicians have used this book - now revised and expanded with 50% new material - to plan and organize effective interventions for children and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma, as well as their parents and other caregivers. The Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) framework can be used in a wide range of settings to strengthen child–caregiver relationships and support healthy development and positive functioning. Packed with case vignettes and user-friendly clinical tools, the volume identifies key treatment goals and provides flexible intervention strategies and skills. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes 72 reproducible handouts and forms. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
