Using Trauma-Focused Therapy Stories is a groundbreaking treatment resource for trauma-informed therapists who work with abused and neglected children ages nine years and older as well as their caregivers. The therapy stories are perfect for accompaniments to evidence-based treatment approaches and provide the foundation for psychoeducation and intervention with the older elementary aged child or early pre-teen. Therapists will also benefit from the inclusion of thorough guides for children and caregivers, which illustrate trauma and developmental concepts in easy-to-understand terms.

The psychoeducational material in the guides, written at a third- to fourth-grade reading level, may be used within any trauma-informed therapy model in the therapy office or sent-home for follow-up. Each therapy story illustrates trauma concepts, guides trauma narrative and cognitive restructuring work, and illuminates caregiver blind spots; the caregiver stories target issues that often become barriers to family trauma recovery. No therapist who works with young trauma survivors will want to be without this book, and school-based professionals, social workers, psychologists and others committed to working with traumatized children will find the book chock-full of game-changing ideas for their practice.

A great book I bought it in the shop and lots of my work colleagues now have a copy. I work with children and young people who have been sexually abused, this is an excellent resource to have with everything else in the therapist toolkit. A most needed update on the Nancy Davies therapeutic stories and explains trauma really well in an easy and accessible way.
