Based on the authors' extensive experience and interactions with trauma survivors, the book provides a trauma-informed framework and offers practical tools to enhance collaboration with survivors and promote a safer helping environment. Mental health providers in health care, community, and addictions settings as well as health care providers and community workers will find the framework and the practical suggestions in this book informative and useful.

Reviews:

"The authors have done a great deed to human service professionals by pulling together what we know so far about responding to traumatic events and presenting it in a clear, practical, and coherent format. This should be a basic text for undergraduate and graduate students as well as practitioners already out in the field." --Sandra L. Bloom, MD, Associate Professor, Health Management and Policy, School of Public Health, Drexel University

"A detailed overview and comprehensive description of the principles of trauma-informed care. The theoretical framework, clinical suggestions, and concrete advice are spot-on, revealing the authors’ clinical acumen and their understanding of the underlying scientific literature. I strongly recommend this book to health and mental health providers." –John Briere, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Southern California; Director, USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center, National Child Traumatic Stress Network
