Tens of thousands of clinicians have used this book—now revised and expanded with 50% new material—to plan and organize effective interventions for children and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma. The Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) framework can be used with children, parents, and other caregivers in a wide range of settings. The volume guides the clinician to identify key treatment goals and intervene flexibly to strengthen child–caregiver relationships and support healthy development and positive functioning. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, it is packed with case vignettes and clinical tools, including 79 reproducible handouts and forms. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

New to This Edition
  • Reflects the ongoing development of ARC, including important refinements to foundational strategies and treatment targets.
  • More than 30 additional handouts and worksheets; all reproducible tools are now downloadable.
  • Greater attention to caregiver skill development throughout.
  • Addresses ways ARC is being used in nontraditional settings (schools, day care, primary care practices) as well as diverse clinical contexts.
