A large segment of the therapy population consist of those who are in denial or retreat from their traumatic experiences. Here, drawing on attachment-based research, the author provides clinical techniques, specific intervention strategies, and practical advice for successfully addressing the often intractable issues of trauma.
Trauma and the Avoidant Client will enhance the skills of all mental health practitioners and trauma workers, and will serve as a valuable, useful resource to facilitate change and progress in psychotherapy.

Reviews:

“Clinically perceptive, theoretically clear, and research-informed, this book is filled with clinical gems.” — Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor, York University

“In this sensitive yet intellectually robust volume Muller shows, in the face of loss and trauma, how self-defeating and health-endangering avoidant strategies can be.... A major, highly accessible contribution to the attachment literature and required reading for all mental health clinicians.” — Jeremy Holmes MD, Professor of Psychological Therapies, University of Exeter, UK, and author, Exploring in Security

“I very much enjoyed reading this book, and it is rare to find one so practical, focused, and well researched. Avoidance is a common and notoriously difficult to treat sequelae of trauma, but taking on the challenge, Muller helps readers recognize and use the therapeutic relationship as the key to reaching these clients effectively. Constructed thoughtfully and insightfully around relevant research, his use of case examples, dialogue of key therapy moments, and point summaries all make it an eminently accessible and practical book.” — Clare Pain, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Director, Psychological Trauma Program, Mount Sinai Hospital
