While recent years have seen a vast increase in the literature on adult trauma, interest in childhood trauma has only recently started to gain momentum, encouraging new research and evidence-based interventions.

Here the editors have brought together an international list of contributors to look at both innovative and established treatments of trauma in a range of contexts, and provide up-to-date coverage of what is on offer in prevention, assessment, treatment and research.

Divided into three parts, main topics discussed are:

  • risk and protective factors for the development of post-traumatic disorders
  • conceptualizations of resilience and suggestions for making them operational
  • evidence-based treatment models for traumatized children

Treating Traumatized Children provides professionals with an up-to-date international perspective on the subject, as well as helping professionals and researchers develop future treatments based on current evidence.
