CBT for Common Trauma Responses
- Michael J Scott - Private Practice, Liverpool
Cognitive/Behaviour Therapy | Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Counselling
After discussing how to tailor CBT practice to work most effectively with trauma responses in real-world settings, Michael J Scott goes on to explore the step-by-step treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, other commonly occurring disorders and, finally, secondary traumatisation. Those training to work with young people, or already doing so, will find the focus in Part Three on CBT with traumatized children invaluable.
'This book can be thoroughly recommended to those working with victims of trauma. Therapists will benefit enormously from the author's wide experience of the many varieties of trauma response and the conditions that frequently accompany them' -
Chris Brewin, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University College London
In terms of conceptualising the problem, the author is authoritative and thorough. There are questionnaires for assessing various types of condition as well as guided self-help material. I suspect many private practitioners will find this volume useful as a reference point, not least because of the information it provides about understanding and assessing trauma. My professional understanding was enriched by this book and it left me with new ideas for working with clients.
I feel that this book is essential for all CBT practitioners and trainees working with traumatised clients. The author demonstrates how CBT works for real-world trauma clients. The excellent use of case studies makes this both accessible and readable and I value the clinically useful advice that the author gives for applying CBT to treat PTSD.
This is an invaluable book for all CBT therapists and trainees wishing to further develop their practice in working with client suffering from trauma. It addresses a full spectrum of post-traumatic responses and shows step-by-step how to treat trauma responses and how these are interconnected to one another.
A fantastic book for therapists dealing with Trauma
I have found this a useful text for information on working with trauma in a practical and helpful way.
A great book for me but too niche for my student groups this time
I really like the detail of this text. The extensive case studies bring the theory to life and this approach is very helpful for students developing their understanding.
Valuable resource for therapists working with clients where trauma as an underlying issue.
