    Using It Already

    As a therapy grad student, I purchased this book because it was on the recommended list for a class I am taking on Adult Trauma Interventions. Even though the class has not yet begun, I have started Phase I from Treating Survivors of Childhood Abuse with two new complex trauma clients I’m seeing. Already I am seeing the benefits. The text is well-written, easy to understand, and comes with handouts for clients at the end of the chapters. I would recommend this book to anyone working in the counseling field.

    Another therapist endorsing this book

    As a psychologist working with trauma survivors for many years, I have found this book to be my go-to for handouts that are clinically relevant to survivors of abuse, and a nicely organized (and evidence-based) approach to treating survivors.

    I have not finished reading this book, but i find it very helpful and informative. The work appears theory driven with good empirical support. It is a pleasure to read, well-organized. This will be one I go back to and one that I apply in my clinical practice.

    All good but the first chapters are exceptional

    I really like the way the book explains the complexity of trauma in childhood. It really helps the therapist and client come to an understanding of how this continues to be problematic in their adult life.

    Exactly what I was looking for fantastic book I feel this book can help many people willing to learn about their lives and how they have been effected by any kind of abuse to little to big the insight of this book will teach you the things that most self help books that aren’t able to revel the circle stops here and the journey begins.

    This has been an enormously helpful book. It helped me to understand and to explain what happens to the adult survivor of abuse. I am a new therapist and this book has been unparalleled in the amount of helpful information and forms of constructive directions. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a clear understanding of the psychological and emotional processes that take place in an adult survivor of abuse.
