Editorial Reviews

International Hypnosis Research Institute

“What a great book. Plainly written, packed with information and resources, the author demonstrates an astonishing depth of knowledge, grasp of scores of trauma therapies, along with compassion and warm empathy for trauma survivors. All this underscored with a scientific objectivity and a lively sense of humor….This book gives the therapist – novice or experienced – a massive choice of approaches to apply to a specific traumatized client.”
The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
“[A] practical resource for those needing a comparative overview of the various trauma treatment methods available.”
Diana Fosha
“This is a thorough, accessible, and very practical book, filled with resources and sound ideas, filtered through the intelligence and experience of a savvy, compassionate, down-to-earth, and very experienced clinician. It is like a travel guide to the land of trauma and trauma treatment: if you are new to it, it will orient you to all there is to do and see; if you’re a frequent traveler, it is a worthwhile reminder of all that is out there, above and beyond the familiar places you always visit. One couldn’t ask for a better guide. I highly recommend it.”
Stephen W. Porges
“Robin Shapiro's user-friendly, easy-to-read handbook succinctly informs professionals of the numerous clinical treatments available for trauma patients. In a systematic format the volume provides an elegant vehicle for the clinician to unravel the complex overlapping features of treatments, and to understand how many contemporary treatments are historically dependent on early innovators and common theoretical models.”
Onno van der Hart
“The Trauma Treatment Handbook is a most welcome addition to the vastly growing trauma literature. Robin Shapiro, a gifted clinician and writer, helps readers understand what it means to be traumatized, how it may affect people in various domains of their lives and what healing entails. In particular, she expertly helps those who need trauma therapy to consider which therapeutic approaches might be most suitable to their needs.”
Kathy Steele
“Clinicians new to the field of trauma will delight in Robin Shapiro's latest contribution. The Trauma Treatment Handbook distills highly complex theories and treatments down to their essence, a gift to those not yet informed about the wide array of important therapeutic approaches for those who have been traumatized. And this book is not only for clinicians: traumatized individuals will discover a clear map to help negotiate the complex maze of treatments currently available, in order to find the right combination for themselves.”
