Somatic Methods for Healing Traumatized Youth is a unique resource that presents a variety of approaches for working somatically with youth.
Chapters provide an overview of the relevant neuroscience research with a specific focus on affect regulation. The somatic techniques showcased in the book are evidence-based and illustrated with case studies showing their impact.
Importantly, the chapters are also chock full of practical information, including strategies for working with dysregulated youth, information for collaborative and cooperative care, and an appendix with checklists and worksheets to help clinicians plan, guide, and assess their work.
