Presenting an integrative model for treating traumatized children, this book combines play, art, and other expressive therapies with ideas and strategies drawn from cognitive-behavioral and family therapy.
Eliana Gil, internationally recognized for her expertise in working with abused children, teens and their families, ‘moves mountains’ with her most recent contribution. It distinguishes itself from other trauma resources in that it combines both a directive and non-directive approach to working with traumatized children and families. Through in-depth case examples, Dr. Gil demonstrates ways to individualize treatment by attending carefully to the personal meanings and experiences of each child. Novice and seasoned clinicians who work with traumatized children will consider this a must have work.
