Editorial Reviews

Review

"A remarkably thorough book. Trauma systems therapy (TST) provides a theoretical rationale for integrating various systems and providing case management and advocacy services when needed. The treatment model covers a wide therapeutic scope: from primary safety issues to innovative ideas for working with highly traumatized children. The authors clearly demonstrate their in-depth understanding of the community mental health setting and the types of barriers clinicians face. Presenting a wealth of information on how to implement the model, this book is an excellent training tool for graduate students, interns, and seasoned clinicians."--Lisa Amaya-Jackson, MD, MPH UCLA-Duke National Center for Child Traumatic Stress

"I am quite pleased to see the publication of this book. The trauma systems therapy model fits very closely with how we at the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) believe traumatized children can and should be treated by providers of mental health services. Glenn Saxe and his colleagues have translated complicated concepts into a brilliant, user-friendly approach that is understandable to clinicians and applicable in most systems. This important work should have a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and families."--Kevin Ann Huckshorn, RN, MSN, National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors

"This book is an exciting addition to the field of child and adolescent trauma treatment. The well-organized volume introduces the reader to trauma systems therapy (TST) in an engaging, readable format. Informed by recent research on the impact of trauma on the developing brain, TST offers a concise, structured assessment and intervention plan. What is unique about this approach is that the treatment is focused not only on the child, but also on the systems that support the child. The link between research, theory, and front-line clinical practice is clear and direct. This text will be invaluable to clinicians in the field and to students learning about trauma treatment and child and adolescent therapy."--Susan Hansen, LCSWR, RPTS, Ulster County Mental Health Department, Kingston, New York

"First and foremost a pragmatic manual, Collaborative Treatment of Traumatized Children and Teens provides an organizing paradigm and practical tools to address the pain and family chaos of child abuse and domestic and community violence. Written for all members of the therapeutic team, it integrates the emerging neuroscience of stress and trauma together with a wealth of clinical experience. Recommended for all disciplines, this intervention draws on the strengths, synergy, and support of a team approach to the complexities of working with traumatized children and their families."--Frank W. Putnam, MD, Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center

"This impressive work, representing a collaboration of child psychiatry and psychology, exemplifies the next generation of treatment manuals. The authors' approach goes beyond a narrow focus on psychopathology to encompass the social, interpersonal, and environmental contexts in which it occurs. The book incorporates the latest thinking on everything from the neurobiological effects of trauma to the disorganized social systems that may exacerbate these effects. This clearly outlined, step-by-step treatment approach will be invaluable for all clinicians dealing with trauma in the difficult social contexts where it most often occurs. Every child clinician will want to be familiar with this approach."--David H. Barlow, PhD, Boston University

"Trauma Systems Therapy provides an elegant way to systematize intervention planning for complex trauma cases, whose multiplicity of problems can often overwhelm the clinician's ability to think clearly and set priorities. Anyone working with families with difficult, unstable lives will appreciate the lucid, clear approach contained in this valuable manual. The curricula of all social work and clinical psychology training programs should include trauma systems therapy."--Robert Abramovitz, MD, Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services, New York, New York

"This is an outstanding text that provides, for the first time, an integrative model of mental health care for children and adolescents exposed to traumatic life events, abuse, and community violence."--Terence M. Keane, PhD, National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System and Boston University


"The authors adopt a broad definition of trauma, including issues such as ongoing stress, poverty, family and community violence, and parental mental illness and substance misuse. This inclusivity makes the book realistic and relevant to a wide range of child and adolescent groups....A valuable resource that strikes the balance well between just the right amount of jargon-free theory and maintaining its focus on practical issues. The book is friendly and easy to read....Here is a book that offers a model that moves theory to practice in order to help all of us who endeavour to treat, support, and care for traumatised children and adolescents."--Counselling Children and Young People

Format: Paperback
This is a great book! It is organized very accessibly and is a good reference and teaching tool. It is clear, well written, and explains trauma in a way that is both grounded in science and very understandable. The best book I have read on this subject!

I consider this book an essential resource in understanding trauma and beginning treatment. The information is presented effectively using vignettes of cases, clear illustrations and diagrams (which is very useful if you are a visual learner), and excellent visual organization of the info. The first part goes into survival circuits, regulation of emotional states, social environment and systems and signals of care. Part II goes into the Ten Treatment Principles, assessment and planning. Part III gives you a comprehensive look into how to use Trauma Systems Therapy. When paired with a good course in learning how to look through a trauma lens, it proves an excellent starting base for trauma treatment.

The information is very easy to understand and good for professionals or those just wanting to learn about trauma treatment. I would recommend this for anyone in a helping profession, not just social workers, psychologists and nurses, but also especially teachers- as they can serve as a frontline for recognizing trauma.
