This will be a concise and practical resource for a range of carers and practitioners working with children who experienced trauma. It will highlight their characteristics in contrast with those for children living in stability, and will describe specific techniques and strategies to help them in different environments and situations. The aim will be to equip practitioners with a range of approaches for these groups of vulnerable children, which are appropriate to sensitively meet their needs and make a difference to their emotional well-being. Key features: case studies; work-sheets; and, evidence-based interventions. It is authored by Dr Panos Vostanis, Professor of Child Psychiatry, University of Leicester; Consultant Child Psychiatrist, Leicestershire Child Mental Health Service.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an easy to read guide to issues and ideas for working with young people who have faced trauma. I would recommend this book for counsellors, teachers, social workers an also students across a range of disciplines. There are several general chapters exploring the area and then specific chapters on different experiences - for example, adoptive families, looked after children, young offenders and young homeless people. Each chapter provides insight, reflective learning exercises and practical tips or guidance. There is a detailed biography. However, one key advantage of the book is it is laid out in an easy to read, straight forward manner - making it useful for a busy practitioner." - Dr. Sara Whittaker, Consultant Clinical Psychologist
