Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ricky Greenwald has proven again to be a great teacher for therapists of traumatized patients. He takes us by the hand and, step by step, shows us how to do effective trauma therapy. This book is recommended for therapists who need to learn the intricacies of trauma treatment. Ricky Greenwald is a master teacher and he has produced another clear and structured guide for therapists."

—Danny Brom, founding director, Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma, Herzog Hospital, and professor at the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

"Greenwald's book is at once delightfully captivating and steeped in a deep understanding of the dynamics of trauma. This well structured combination of text and workbook maps out an integrative approach to trauma treatment that is utterly respectful of the client and will enhance the clinical skills and effectiveness of novice and seasoned therapist alike."

—Robin Ticic, coauthor of Unlocking the Emotional Brain: Eliminating Symptoms at Their Roots Using Memory Reconsolidation

"We know that many clients' problems come from unresolved trauma and loss, and we have finally realized the importance of trauma-informed treatment. This book presents a user-friendly trauma-informed treatment approach that is grounded in the trauma research and practice. Such evidence-based approaches are definitely needed, but most focus on very restricted methods and techniques. This book is unique in that common factors in psychotherapy and memory reconsolidation are utilized. The techniques described in this book are easy for clinicians to follow, presented in a straight-forward manner, and include excellent exercises to illustrate the main points. For trauma resolution, progressive counting provides another important tool to include in our tool box. The author has a history of creating and producing innovative and excellent resources in the treatment of trauma. This book continues that tradition."

—Robert Geffner, PhD, president, Institute on Violence, Abuse & Trauma at Alliant International University and editor of the Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment & Trauma and the Journal of Child & Adolescent Trauma
