Rich with expert, practical guidance for therapists, this book presents an evidence-based group treatment approach for survivors of interpersonal trauma. This time-limited treatment is designed for clients who have achieved basic safety and stability in present-day life and who are ready to work on the more enduring ways that trauma has harmed their self-perception and relationships. Vivid case examples and transcripts illustrate the process of screening, selecting, and orienting group members and helping them craft and work toward individualized goals, while optimizing the healing power of group interactions. In a convenient large-size format, the book includes reproducible handouts, worksheets, and flyers.

"This comprehensive resource adds significantly to the available resources on treatment for trauma, walking the therapist through the entire process of group-based exposure and trauma processing. The group format is especially important for the traumatized—it provides a context in which to give and receive support and feedback and to break the isolation and shame associated with trauma. Bravo for this exciting new treatment contribution!"
-Christine A. Courtois, PhD, private practice, Washington, DC

"Presenting a well-known group treatment for trauma survivors, this book makes a substantial contribution. The goals and structure of the therapy are described in a clear and accessible way so that providers of various levels of experience can implement it. Sensitivity to the relational aspects of trauma recovery pervades the book and is evident in the careful attention to group interactions, elements of effective co-leadership, and the role of supervision. This principled, practical guide is steeped in clinical wisdom accumulated over years of experience. There is no false step in this book."
-Marylene Cloitre, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, New York University Medical Center
