Editorial Reviews


"This comprehensive volume should be on the desk of any clinician who works with traumatized children and families, whether in clinical, community, educational, or medical settings. It is an ideal text for both seasoned professionals and graduate students in all of the helping professions. Detailed case examples and descriptions of clinical and community interventions provide 'everything you need to know' about helping clients heal from large-scale traumatic incidents."--Cathy A. Malchiodi, ATR, CPAT, LPCC, National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children

"Much still remains to be learned about how mass trauma affects children and families and how its harmful impact can be reduced. In the absence of decisive evidence, this book fills the gap by outlining what is currently known and making valuable recommendations for practice. Given previous terrorist acts, current threats, and the ongoing separation of children from parents who serve in the military, this book addresses a very timely issue and does so with clarity and wisdom."--Arieh Y. Shalev, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Hadassah University Hospital, Israel

"An indispensable resource for counseling practitioners working with children and families in the contemporary culture....This book is one that could be read in full for the reader interested in learning more about child- and family-focused trauma practice as a whole or in chapters that relate to current needs and interests....I strongly recommend this book for family-based counseling practitioners as it will facilitate the integration of best practices of traumatology into their current and future work in a world that is unfortunately chronically threatened by terror. I also believe this text would serve as an excellent resource for a course, internship, or other curricular experience in family and child counseling."--The Family Journal
(The Family Journal 2004-01-01)

"A timely book....Practitioners who work with these victims will gain a great deal from the various treatment models presented as well as assistance with helping themselves deal with the stressful nature of their work."--Journal of Trauma Practice
(Journal of Trauma Practice 2004-01-01)

Format: Hardcover
Ably edited by Nancy Boyd Webb (University Distinguished Professor of Social Work and registered play therapy supervisor), Mass Trauma And Violence: Helping Families And Children Cope is a deeply serious and comprehensive resource of essays concerning a wealth of ways to help children and families deal with community violence, war, and terrorist attacks. With detailed case examples, the wisdom of expert contributors, and candid discussion ranging from music therapy and sandplay art, dealing with cultural resistance to mental health services, issues concerning the modalities, timing, and treatment of traumatized children and adolescents, and much more. A much needed and welcome cutting-edge contribution to psychology and social work reference shelves.
