The authors' relational approach has a demonstrable empirical basis that sets a new standard for clinicians. The book is sure to produce a splash in psychology, psychiatry, and social work--and using it with clients will yield enduring benefits. If you do groups with trauma and abuse survivors, buy this book."--John Briere, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California

"This comprehensive resource adds significantly to the available resources on treatment for trauma, walking the therapist through the entire process of group-based exposure and trauma processing. The group format is especially important for the traumatized--it provides a context in which to give and receive support and feedback and to break the isolation and shame associated with trauma. Bravo for this exciting new treatment contribution!"--Christine A. Courtois, PhD, ABPP, private practice (retired), Washington, DC; consultant and trainer, trauma psychology and treatment

"Presenting a well-known group treatment for trauma survivors, this book makes a substantial contribution. The goals and structure of the therapy are described in a clear and accessible way so that providers of various levels of experience can implement it. Sensitivity to the relational aspects of trauma recovery pervades the book and is evident in the careful attention to group interactions, elements of effective co-leadership, and the role of supervision. This principled, practical guide is steeped in clinical wisdom accumulated over years of experience. There is no false step in this book."--Marylene Cloitre, PhD, Associate Director of Research, National Center for PTSD Dissemination and Training Division; Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University

"A comprehensive, practical, evidence-based guide. This volume provides everything needed to successfully conduct the Trauma Recovery Group. The book is unique in combining theory, numerous clinical examples, outcome data, and reproducible forms for everything from advertisement to evaluation. The authors are respected, experienced clinicians whose scientific approach and clinical skills shine throughout the book. It's a trauma clinician's dream come true."--Elizabeth S. Bowman, MD, Adjunct Professor, Department of Neurology, Indiana University, and private practice in psychiatry
