The book is well set out and is full of practical strategies to apply whilst working with clients. It also gives a thorough overview about trauma and
how it effects the body and how vicarious trauma occurs. Clear case studies help one to fully understand how the strategies work.
I found I was on the brink of burnout and the useful easy to
apply ideas in this book made a huge difference in managing the symptoms of vicarious trauma.
It gave me skills I will continue to use for many years to come.
I'd highly recommend this one.
