“This book’s innovative use of succinct but thorough overviews of three prominent evidence-based treatment models, combined with case studies and expert commentary, results in a practitioner-oriented educational tool for those of us treating children exposed to trauma. I recommend it for students in graduate school as well as professionals in community practice.”

—Lisa Amaya-Jackson, MD, MPH, Associate Director, UCLA-Duke National Center for Child Traumatic Stress, Duke University School of Medicine

“Allen and Kronenberg have creatively addressed the important issue of how to effectively infuse evidence-based practices into clinical work with children of different ages. This is an engaging book because of the integration of research with clinical application. The expert commentaries are particularly helpful for enabling the reader to learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of the therapist's approach in each case. This is an important resource for all clinicians who work with traumatized children and their families, as well as for psychology graduate students, child psychiatric residents, and social workers and counselors in training.”

—Joy D. Osofsky, PhD, Barbara Lemann Professor, Departments of Pediatrics and Psychiatry, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center

“An excellent overview of the major empirically based approaches for trauma work with children. The extended case studies with commentaries by major figures in the field highlight the nuanced issues typically encountered in applying these approaches and make this volume incredibly useful for practitioners and students learning these techniques. I recommend this book highly for graduate courses and staff training at agencies. It is useful for introducing the approaches as a prelude to gaining more focused accredited training and/or as follow-up for case discussions.”

—Sandra T. Azar, PhD, Department of Psychology, The Pennsylvania State University

“Provides the practicing clinician with a solid understanding of the core issues in evidence-based approaches for childhood trauma. Case examples from frontline clinicians, along with commentary by treatment experts, highlight real-world applications, choice points, and common challenges. This volume is a helpful addition to the treatment literature, bridging the often-reported chasm between treatment development and clinical practice.”
