As of 2009, The Council of Accreditation and Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) mandated that all counseling programs must address trauma within their curriculum. Trauma Counseling, written by a Fulbright scholar who is internationally recognized for her work with traumatized populations in Rwanda, is designed to help counseling students and professionals approach and treat trauma survivors with confidence. In so doing, it not only fulfills but exceeds the requirements of CACREP standards.

The text provides a comprehensive review of the many causes of trauma, including interpersonal violence, hate crimes, school violence, and war and terrorism. It includes evidence-based trauma counseling techniques and integrates the latest findings from neuropsychology and psychopharmacology. It also addresses macro-level issues such as community violence. This interdisciplinary textbook will be of tremendous use to graduate counseling students and professional counselors, as well as social workers, psychologists, and other human service providers.

Key Topics:

  • Trauma and context
  • Trauma of loss, vulnerability, and interpersonal violence
  • Intolerance and trauma of hate
  • Large-scale trauma, crisis, and violence
  • Community, school, and organizational violence
  • Clinical assessment and treatment issues
  • Other issues in trauma counseling

Industry Reviews

[This book is] heavy in weight and heavy in substance...It may be that you will not read this book from cover to cover, but it is likely that you will jump in and out, and often."--Illness, Crisis, And Loss
[Lisa Lopez Levers's] work delivers an important contribution to enable beginning professionals to be familiarised with the basics of trauma and to provide specialists with her hidden gems of insight. Her decision to cover trauma, in its broadest sense, allows her textbook to provide innovative insights into real-world concepts such as: hate, racism, oppression and evil, in respect to trauma."--Intervention
...[A] worthy addition to [a] graduate training bookshelf... I was a bit daunted by the large, almost 600-page book that landed on my desk, but once I started reading it I had a hard time putting it down!"--Melanie D. Hetzel-Riggin, PhD "Penn State, Journal of Trauma and Dissociation "
