What People Are Saying

Craig Nakken
This book more than any others I've read, addresses in detail the negative interdependence so common between addiction and psychological trauma. It not only explores the theoretical relationship between the two, which it does thoroughly in the first part of the book, but it also speaks well to the simultaneous healing of the wounds of trauma and the illness of addiction. . . . IT PUSHES AND CHALLENGES US to not continue the separation between psychology and addiction theories and techniques, but as clinicians to cross over and bridge this historical divide to better serve the still suffering. (Craig Nakken, LICSW, LMFT, Author of The Addictive Personality: Understanding the Addictive Process and Compulsive Behaviors)
David J. Powell
Therapists at times feel overwhelmed by the complexity of the patients' problems, ranging from mental disorders to substance abuse and psychological trauma. Some counselors might even experience "secondary trauma" as a result. This book OFFERS HOPE FOR COUNSELORS AND PATIENTS. It addresses an important yet rarely discussed subject in the behavioral health field, the relationship between psychological trauma and addiction treatment. These issues often go undiagnosed and under-treated. . . . COVERS A BROAD RANGE OF CRITICAL ISSUES, SUCH AS EFFECTIVE PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC MODELS FOR DEALING WITH TRAUMA AND ADDICTION. It also reviews the neurobiology of trauma and the roles of 12 Step and Creative Arts programs in treatment. THE READER WILL GREATLY BENEFIT from both the theoretical and practical aspects of this seminal book. IT SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING FOR THERAPISTS WHO DEAL WITH ISSUES RELATED TO TRAUMA AND ADDICTION. (David J. Powell, PhD, President, International Center for Health Concerns, Inc.)
Kathryn Bedard
A collection of wisdom that is INVALUABLE, for the beginner in the field through clinicians with advance training and expertise. The wealth of knowledge and experience on these pages is applicable for those in addictions, mental health, correctional and other settings. Each chapter plays a key part in becoming an integrated and whole picture of the trauma experience and the methods available for its' treatment. . . . THE MOST IMPORTANT ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THIS BOOK IS THE STRONG MESSAGE OF ADVOCACY AND HOPE: that there can be an end to the cycle of "treatment failures", that trauma survivors can grow and recover. From an individual who has been in the clinical field of mental health and addictions for over 35 years: THIS BOOK BELONGS IN THE OFFICE OF EVERY TREATMENT PROFESSIONAL: and it should be dog-eared and well used! (Kathryn Bedard, MA, LCADC, CMS, NCADC, Author, Compassion and Courage in the Aftermath of Traumatic Loss: Stones in My Heart Forever)
Jeffrey M. Georgi
NOT JUST 'EXCELLENT BOOK'. IT IS A NECESSARY ONE. . . .Has something for both the clinician new to the field and the seasoned therapist. For the entry level clinician, its overview of approaches provides enough information allowing them to pursue further learning and training in the approach that best suits them. For the more seasoned clinician, there are adequate case studies tied to techniques which will help strengthen their developing eclectic styles. . . .BALANCES A SENSITIVITY OF THEORY AND PRACTICE. The addiction field has long suffered on practice without the supporting theoretical models. . . .Examines a variety of models for the treatment of addiction and trauma providing an integration of theory woven around case histories and technique. Tackling issues of spirituality, 12 step involvement, gender concerns, and DMDR, Creative Arts, and other interventions which might be seen as 'controversial' (through the eyes of an overly stuffy conservative academic). . . . OPENS AN ESSENTIAL DIALOGUE FOR CLINICAL GROWTH. . . . Perhaps Psychological Trauma and Addiction Treatment's most important gift to the field is its acknowledgment of the inseparable nature of trauma and addiction demanding that these co-mingling disorders be treated in an integrated fashion if we are to be effective. It appropriately ends with the unequivocal message that those of us who treat this patient population are not left unaffected and not to address our own issues of self-care is done so at our own peril. (Jeffrey M. Georgi, M.Div., CCAS, LPC, Clinical Associate, Department of Behavioral Medicine, Clinical Director, Duke Addictions Program, Duke University Medical Center)
