• Clinical Skills for Managing Complex Traumatisation by Leah Giarratano, ISBN 9781920902100 (Softcover)

This text provides practical skills for use by mental health clinicians working with survivors of child abuse and neglect, and other forms of complex traumatisation.

 

Since the conceptualisation of Complex PTSD, a range of clinically effective treatments for some of our most challenged and challenging clients has emerged. There is a paradigm shift in treatment occurring, and with that a need for all treatment providers to understand when cognitive behavioural interventions for the traumatised are indicated, and when other, more experiential, but still empirically-validated, approaches are required. There is more hope for our traumatised clients than ever before, and this text will equip mental health clinicians with immediately practical skills to treat their clients who have survived complex traumatisation.
