This book looks at how to effectively engage traumatized clients, who avoid attachment, closeness, and painful feelings.

A large segment of the therapy population consist of those who are in denial or retreat from their traumatic experiences. Here, drawing on attachment-based research, the author provides clinical techniques, specific intervention strategies, and practical advice for successfully addressing the often intractable issues of trauma.

Trauma and the Avoidant Client will enhance the skills of all mental health practitioners and trauma workers, and will serve as a valuable, useful resource to facilitate change and progress in psychotherapy.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Clinically perceptive, theoretically clear, and research-informed, this book is filled with clinical gems.'
- Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor, York University

'In this sensitive yet intellectually robust volume Muller shows, in the face of loss and trauma, how self-defeating and health-endangering avoidant strategies can be.... A major, highly accessible contribution to the attachment literature and required reading for all mental health clinicians.'
- Jeremy Holmes MD, Professor of Psychological Therapies, University of Exeter, UK, and author, Exploring in Security
