Dissociation in Traumatized Children and Adolescents presents a series of unique and compelling case studies written by some of the foremost international experts in the study of dissociation in young people. In the new edition, chapters have been updated to include discussion of both neuropsychology and of Joy Silberg's popular affect-avoidance model, and Sandra Wieland's incisive commentaries on each chapter have also been updated. Each chapter lays out a detailed narrative that illustrates both the therapy's progression as well as the therapist's reactions and thought process during case development. The case studies present many aspects of working with traumatized children who dissociate-trauma processing, attachment work, work with the family, interactions with the community-and give frank analysis of the difficulties clinicians encounter in various therapeutic situations and how and why they arrived at particular therapeutic decisions. While the book includes intensive analysis of each author's theoretical framework as well as that of dissociation in general, it also shows clinicians, in the most practical terms, how to translate the theories of dissociation into action.
