"Treleaven's writing is engaging and accessible... [He] has written a timely book about how to modify and accommodate for trauma experiences when practicing mindfulness... Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness is practical, well-organized, and will undoubtedly help clinicians be more cautious and effective when using mindfulness approaches with clients who have trauma histories." -- Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy
