Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the book that clinicians and educators concerned with child traumatic stress have been waiting for! Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the clear 'best-practice' treatment for traumatized children and their families. This book describes this evidence-based treatment approach in a pragmatic manner that every clinician will appreciate. I found the extensive use of case examples and the answers to common clinical questions to be particularly valuable. This book should be read by every therapist and every student working with traumatized children and their families."--Benjamin E. Saunders, PhD, National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina

"For therapists treating children affected by trauma, this is a 'must-have' book. It is truly a clinician’s guide, describing specific treatment strategies to accomplish the proven ingredients of trauma-focused therapy. It illustrates how theory-driven, research-supported interventions can be translated into real-life, complex case situations."--Lucy Berliner, MSW, Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington

"This state-of-the-art treatment manual orients both the novice and seasoned clinician to critical core components for treating children who suffer from trauma and loss. Eminent clinician-scholars in the trauma field have provided a highly effective, evidence-based package, honed by feedback from community-based practitioners. This is a 'must-have' tool for every clinician’s toolkit!"--Lisa Amaya-Jackson, MD, MPH, UCLA-Duke National Center for Child Traumatic Stress


"The ideal source for therapists with children and adolescent clients who have experienced a trauma...and do not appear to be coping well with having had the experience....A manual for the empirically based components of treatment that appear to be critical to help a child recover from experiencing such events and integrate them into the whole of his or her life so that they no longer play a detrimental role in the child's or the parent's life....As a community therapist, I found this book refreshing, usable, and immediately helpful. It will make its way into reader's therapy with the next client seen who has such treatment needs. Already, I have found the handouts in the appendixes useful."--PsycCRITIQUES
(PsycCRITIQUES 2006-06-25)

"Describes what some consider the best available treatment for children who are suffering from the sequelae to trauma....Contains several appendices in which very useful client handouts for both children and their parents are included, additional recommended readings for clients and professionals are provided, and information for web-based training in trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy is described....[It] is well written and the treatment protocol is easy to follow for clinicians with a background in exposure-based therapies. The book is also very accessible given its detailed organization. An added bonus is the inclusion of answers to frequently asked questions, which primarily address commonly confronted difficulties associated with implementing the intervention. Moreover, sample scripts and case examples provided throughout the book help to tailor treatment to specific individual's needs and offer guidance for how to respond to different types of trauma....Highly recommended for clinicians working with child and adolescent clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress symptoms."--Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy
(Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy 2006-06-25)

"Seasoned clinicians will benefit greatly from this text in updating their skills and knowledge of current evidence-based practice in the treatment of children and adolescents who have been traumatized. For novice clinicians, the work by Cohen and her colleagues should be required as a part of any clinical training focused on trauma."--Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal
(Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal 2006-06-25)

"Even more informative and readable than I had expected....This practical book outlines the therapy in a way that makes it come alive....Many good practical examples, as well as a trouble-shooting section, complete each chapter. Handouts for patients and an excellent reference section complete the book. The authors' impressive breadth of knowledge and experience makes this book valuable for any professional who might find families with traumatic experiences in their practice. I strongly recommend it to my colleagues."--Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
(Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry 2010-01-03)

"A well-written, practical, and theoretical guide for individuals working with children, adolescents, and their families. Cohen, Mannarino, and Deblinger, who are accomplished leaders in the field, have successfully compiled their previous research with knowledge gained from community practitioners in an eloquent and practical manner. The book provides a tremendously useful bridge from theoretical construct to hands-on treatment....Particularly refreshing is the recognition and attention given to defining trauma in affective, cognitive, and behavioral domains....In an era of increased accountability and attention to evidence-based practice, this book is on the mark. The authors provide a treatment structure in which the connection between theory and practice is purposeful, apparent, and meaningful. It is a how-to manual for treating trauma and traumatic grief. Practitioners at all levels can use the information presented in this book to benefit children, adolescents, and their families."--Best Practices in Mental Health
(Best Practices in Mental Health 2006-06-25)

I have to agree with the other reviews that describe this book as thorough and well-written. The authors use language that is psychology-based but also accessible to non-psychology oriented readers. It is written in a logical order and covers all the bases of trauma-based therapy work.

One thing that I especially appreciate about this book is that it discusses the various domains of one's life that trauma affects: emotions, thoughts, behaviors, biological/physical factors, etc. I also love how easily it lays out the steps that are taken to help a traumatized child/teen. The "PRACTICE" approach that the authors introduce is easy to follow and to put into action, for the most part. Even for therapists who are not using the CBT model of psychology (which is me), this book gives plenty of good ideas and tips for how to best treat those affected by trauma.

The appendices are also quite helpful in guiding readers to related works and in providing concrete examples of activities suggested by the authors.

Overall, this is a very worthy read!

This book was required reading for a postgraduate course for professionals in treating trauma. Excellent resource for the professional counselor - may even be applied to young adults, adults with delayed emotional developmental issues, or developmentally disabled adults. Highly recommended graduated-exposure and appropriate titration to the processing of trauma experiences using an evidence-based practice.

After attending trainings on this method I was inclined to get the book which went into more detail on the TF-CBT method. I find the book helpful and a good reminder of the "shoulds" and "should nots" for this treatment modality. Worth the money and not a bad price.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of trauma on children. The Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach is described in detail, making it easy for practitioners to implement into their practice. I highly recommend this book for mental health practitioners treating traumatized youth. Other books on this topic that I recommend:

Blending Play Therapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Evidence-Based and Other Effective Treatments and Techniques

Structured Play-Based Interventions for Engaging Children and Adolescents in Therapy

Creative Interventions for Bereaved Children

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Child Trauma and Abuse: An Step-by-Step Approach

This is an outstanding book and should have received five stars from me. Due to the extremely well written and clear content, the information contained in the text is rich and conceptually dense making slow but wonderful reading for me. I hope that my review here is wrong in which case I would gladly give the book five stars.

However, as an L.C.S.W. working in the public schools with over 30 years of experience including 17 years of prior experience working with child and adolescent victims of abuse and trauma, I was appalled at the lack of attention spent on effectively collaborating with schools. The only reference I could find, and I am reading the book as fast as I can digest the scope of information contained, is on page 150 and it states that, "The school does not need to know the details of the child's treatment to to understand the plan for helping him/her return to school. . . There is typically no need to to tell school personnel details about the nature of the child's traumatic experience."

This position denigrates the role of mental health professionals working in the schools, is non-systemic in its perspective, and denies the child and family impacted by trauma or traumatic grief tremendously valuable support. The impacted young person will spend a major portion of their day and of their social interaction in school. The failure to aggressively incorporate school-based resources on a role-specific basis is a major oversight, disrespectful of the capacity of mental health professionals working in the schools, and a disservice to children and families impacted by trauma.

Again, I hope that I misread or misunderstood the position of the authors.

Thank you.
