Overview

Until recently, there has not been a great deal of overlap in the child welfare and trauma literatures. This text bridges that divide by integrating perspectives from both fields to help practitioners understand and address the special needs of maltreated children and adolescents and their families. Current knowledge on attachment, trauma, and risk and resilience is clearly explained, including the impact of abuse on the brain. Readers learn how to conduct assessments and implement a range of effective helping strategies with youth in foster care and other settings. Featuring extensive case illustrations, the book gives particular attention to diversity issues and the importance of supporting child and family strengths.

In my personal opinion this book has been very helpful. As I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I used it for training purposes and find interesting aspects of the welfare system and better ways to assist children's needs as a therapist. It opens one's minds into looking beyond a child's symptoms and working toward healing process in a comfortable and safety environment for children in need. I hope others are able to enjoy it and gain like I did, which in the end, those in need also gain and benefit.
