Overview

Treatment of abuse and neglect needs to be family-focused in order to reduce troubling symptoms, address family risk and relapse potential, treat cross-generational patterns, and remediate attachment deficits. Evidence-based practices are available for child and family abuse treatment, including Trauma Focused CBT, but new intervention strategies are needed that reduce family and client denial, lower defensiveness, and prevent re-traumatization during the treatment process. Family-Focused Trauma Intervention: Using Metaphor and Play with Victims of Abuse and Neglect translates issues central to abuse and neglect recovery into metaphorical stories and family-based interventions. Each chapter provides a summary of an issue or theme, one or more pertinent stories, and parallel family, group, and individual interventions. These stories and family-focused interventions help clients regulate affect in order to reduce frequency and intensity of troubling symptoms. This volume is the 'missing link' in the current literature on therapy and metaphor, as it focuses specifically on parent-child interaction and trauma. The content of this book, which may be used within any theoretical framework, provides a wide variety of practitioners with a needed bridge between theory and practice.

Editorial Reviews

Athena A. Drewes
A wonderful compendium of metaphorical stories intertwined with practical, play-based applications for use in the treatment of sexually abused and neglected children and their families. This unique book offers clinicians practical hands-on tools that deal with a range of PTSD-based topics from self-control and affect modulation to attachment issues and safety. It is a rich treasure trove of unique narratives and applications that is a 'must have' addition for child and play therapists.
George W. Burns
Delightful, transforming, wise stories and practical interventions. This book has exactly what all therapists need to help kids and families deal with those life experiences that kids should never have to deal with.
