A Therapeutic Treasure Box for Working with Children and Adolescents with Developmental Trauma
Creative Techniques and Activities
By: Karen Treisman
Like a treasure chest, this resource overflows with valuable resources - information, ideas and techniques to inspire and support those working with children who have experienced relational and developmental trauma.
Drawing on a range of therapeutic models including systemic, psycho-dynamic, trauma, sensory, neurobiological, neurocognitive, attachment, cognitive behavioural, and creative ideas, Dr Karen Treisman explains how we understand trauma and its impact on children, teens and their families. She details how it can be seen in symptoms such as nightmares, sleeping difficulties, emotional dysregulation, rage, and outbursts.
Theory and strategies are accompanied by a treasure trove of practical, creative, and ready-to-use resources including over 100 illustrated worksheets and handouts, top tips, recommended sample questions, and photographed examples.
Market: Mental health professionals including counsellors, therapists, psychiatrists, nurses, and social workers who work with or are involved with looked after, adopted, or unaccompanied asylum-seeking children, and any other children in need.
