This book describes a range of effective ways to help children and families cope with major traumatic experiences such as community violence, war, and terrorist attacks. Detailed case examples bring to life the complexities of assessment and intervention with children of different ages and cultural backgrounds, including both survivors of one-time traumatic events and those dealing with ongoing stressors like the military deployment of a parent. Expert contributors provide guidelines for setting up and running school- and clinic-based support groups; conducting brief and longer-term interventions with individuals and families; and promoting healing with art, music, and play. Grounded in the latest knowledge on stress and coping, bereavement, attachment, and risk and resilience, and including much-needed tips for therapist self-care, this is an essential clinical resource and text.

Industry Reviews

"This comprehensive volume should be on the desk of any clinician who works with traumatized children and families, whether in clinical, community, educational, or medical settings. It is an ideal text for both seasoned professionals and graduate students in all of the helping professions. Detailed case examples and descriptions of clinical and community interventions provide 'everything you need to know' about helping clients heal from largescale traumatic incidents." - - Cathy A. Malchlodi, ATR, CPAT, LPCC, National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children"
