The Handbook of Stress, Trauma, and the Family is broken down into three sections, compiling research, theory and practice. The first section focuses on how traumatic stress affects intimate others, what familial characteristics affect individual susceptibility to trauma, as well as evaluation of the effectiveness of various interventions. The section on theory explores concepts of stress and intrapsychic processes underlying the intergenerational transmission of trauma, addressesing how families can buffer or enhance anxiety. The final section, entitled practice, covers assessment (presenting both the Circumplex Model and Bowenian family theory models), treatment models and treatment formats for specific populations. The major family treatment models applicable to stress and trauma are discussed, including contextual, object relations, emotionally focused and critical interaction therapy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This edited text provides a valuable collection of chapters that offer thereotical insights, research experiences, and clinical models from a well respected and experienced group of family clinicians and researchers. It is useful for clinical teaching, as they offer a variety of recommended strategies from a range of theoretical approaches. The text is readable, well presented, and provides a useful addition to the scholarship on trauma and stress. It would be a valuable ancillary textbook for a general couples and family treatment class and useful main textbook for classes on families and stress at the graduate level." -- Journal of Marital and Family Therapy; Marsha T. Carolan, PhD
