Dr. Greenwald's Child Trauma Handbook strikes a new chord as it hits several critical points often missing in discussion of trauma treatment for children. He emphasizes the need for collaboration between therapist, caregivers and other professionals to establish and maintain safety and stability for the child. Dr. Greenwald describes a trauma-informed case formulation that provides an understanding of how important the trauma piece is for everyone involved and why it's important in changing a child's behavior. The importance of understanding and working with triggers is explained, as is identifying and planning for anticipated challenges.
Dr. Greenwald's book is straightforward, clear and concise. It is an invaluable tool both for the beginning therapist learning to work with traumatized children and the more seasoned professionals who have been looking for just this framework to enhance their practice.
