Review

"This is a comprehensive guide to effectively helping the innumerable children who have lost their way in the world as a result of terrifying experiences. Blaustein and Kinniburgh's highly practical methods for promoting self-regulation, safety, and competency make this book a landmark for understanding and treating traumatized children."--Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD, Medical Director, The Trauma Center; Professor of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine
 
"Written by gifted clinicians, this book presents one of the most helpful therapeutic approaches for complex childhood trauma. It describes the developmental consequences of trauma and provides specific techniques for resolving them. The book is filled with examples, exercises, handouts, worksheets, and therapeutic tools that allow the clinician to directly intervene in the child or adolescent's relational schemas, self-regulation difficulties, and subsequent dysfunctional behaviors. Highly recommended!"--John Briere, PhD, Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California
 
"This book moves beyond the developmentally limited diagnosis of PTSD to fully address the clinical complexity of traumatized children and families encountered in the real world. The authors, both experienced therapists, offer a detailed, theory-based treatment model supported by an array of pragmatic strategies and therapeutic suggestions. The depth and flexibility of this approach allow it to be translated to a wide range of settings in which traumatized children and their families are seen and served."--Frank W. Putnam, MD, Departments of Pediatrics and Psychiatry, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
 
"Provides a lucid theoretical synthesis and an eminently practical toolkit for psychotherapy with children and adolescents with PTSD and other traumatic stress disorders. The emphasis on attachment, self-regulation, and competency is unique. This is an invaluable resource for all therapists who work with children and adolescents, as well as therapists in training."--Julian D. Ford, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Connecticut Health Center


"The book is a comprehensive, practical guide, taking the reader through an introduction of Developmental Trauma and the nine building blocks of the intervention....The toolbox for each chapter was illustrated with case examples and cultural and developmental considerations. The appendix includes over 45 handouts covering specific ideas and techniques for group activities, psycho-education, and worksheets for the young person and their care-givers. I found all of these resources really useful....The tips and ideas on developing therapy routines, and opening/closing activities with children would be helpful for all trainee clinical psychologists, as would many of the behavioural techniques....I would highly recommend [this book] to anyone interested in the field."--Journal of Mental Health

I wish I had bought this book sooner. As a therapist in a community mental health agency I work with complexly traumatized children, including those in foster care. I've been looking for resources that have explicit information on helping children with self-regulation and this book is a treasure.

This is a treatment manual for ARC: Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency. While it has components/ building blocks, the authors encourage you to view it as a framework rather than a rigid structure, so that it allows for clinical creativity. The building blocks addressed are as follows: Caregiver management of affect, Attunement, Consistent caregiver response, Building routines and rituals, Affect Identification, Modulation, Affect expression, Strengthening executive functions (impulse control and problem solving), and Self development and identity. There is also a section on trauma experience integration which reviews various ways to develop a trauma narrative.

Each chapter reviews one of the building blocks. Key concepts are provided for the clinician to review with the caregiver, so that the caregiver is involved in treatment each step of the way. There are steps for the therapist to follow along with suggestions for creative, play or art-based activities to help accomplish each goal. Developmental considerations are addressed with adaptations of interventions based on the child's developmental stage/ age. Cultural issues are also addressed, and the authors review how to work with the components in a variety of settings including group therapy, individual/ dyadic (with the caregiver), and milieu (residential) settings. A helpful "Real-World Therapy" section of each chapter addresses practical considerations.

Excellent book for dealing with children with all levels of trauma. I have experience in dealing with trauma in adults, but this book helped me bridge the gap effectively with children. Contains everything you need (including handouts).

This is an excellent book on treating children and adolescents with traumatic stress. I have never seen a book with such a comprehensive list of tools for dealing with child-related trauma. I was very impressed with how every section included accomodations for development level, handouts, tips, and multiple trouble-shooting ideas. I was particularly impressed with the way that Dr.'s Blaustein and Kinniburgh made interventions concrete yet flexible to meet the needs of the child. The chapter on affect modulation was especially good--and I loved the framework for helping children regulate up and down, learning to monitor their own energy level. I felt the activities were engaging and easily adaptable to the interests of children of different ages. I would recommend this book to any clinician who is doing work with traumatized children!

I'm usually hesitant in purchasing therapy books because often I have found them too technical or too theoretical that I could not apply them to my practice. This book however has exceeded my expectations. I'm about half way through the read and constantly highlighting it. It is rich in application and information that is very relevant to practice - including private practice, group therapy, and inpatient. There are so many ideas offered as well as several appendixes filled with handouts to give to both parents and children/adolescents in helping them know how to relate with themselves and each other effectively. The application of the material is broad too...meaning I could use this material in working with trauma survivors or just teens having a difficult time managing their emotions, or teens/children with Reactive Attachment Disorder. I also found that this book helped me to more easily conceptualize and understand the different stages of development and how they are hindered by trauma, better than any other teaching or reading has been able to explain. This has been an excellent resource for me in my practice and I highly recommend this book.

ARC is one of the most helpful frameworks I have ever learned for treating developmental trauma and building trauma-informed systems. I use these concepts every single day in my work with clients, organizations, and larger systems. Thank you Margaret and Kristine for such a great foundation to always come back to!

When I looked inside this book prior to purchase there was limited info, but from contents I had hoped more understanding of the late teen early adult. However, I am not easily detered and the info here seems useful to be gleaned for understanding further how all ages (especially adults) may still have issues that date back to stages of childhood. It is a useful book to have for a particularly challenging familial situation and seems very evidence based and pragmatic but more directly beneficial for the therapist.
