Description

Praise for Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children

"A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with this series, which has all of these characteristics and more."
Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University

"Rubin and Springer have assembled the wisdom of leading practitioners of evidence-based practice interventions, enhancing the likelihood that these practices will be adopted by helping professionals. Written in the language of practitioners, this book represents an exemplar for dissemination of evidence-based practice information."
Joanne Yaffe, Associate Professor, University of Utah College of Social Work

Evidence-based interventions for treating traumatized adults and children

Part of the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children provides busy mental health practitioners with detailed, step-by-step guidance for implementing clinical interventions that are supported by the latest scientific evidence.

Edited by renowned educators Allen Rubin and David W. Springer, this thoroughly useful reference draws on a roster of experts and researchers in the field who have assembled state-of-the-art knowledge into this well-rounded guide, and covers the following interventions that have the best empirical support for treating posttraumatic stress disorder:

  • Prolonged exposure therapy

  • Trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Easy-to-use and accessible in tone, this indispensable resource is for practitioners who would like to implement evidence-based, compassionate, and effective interventions in their care of traumatized clients.

Reviews

A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home-run with the Clinician’s Guide to Evidence-Based Practice series, which has all of these characteristics and more.
Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University

This timely book provides detailed, easy to follow procedures for the treatment of traumatized adults and children, based on a solid foundation of empirically based practice. Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children, as well as others in the Clinician’s Guide to Evidence-Based Practice series, is a must read for clinicians who incorporate notions of evidence-based practice in their work.
Tony Tripodi, DSW, Professor Emeritus, Ohio State University

Rubin and Springer have assembled the practice wisdom of leading practitioners of evidence-based practice interventions, enhancing the likelihood that these practices will be adopted by helping professionals. Each chapter introduces readers to principles which undergird a specific intervention and detailed descriptions of assessment criteria, flow of treatment, and procedural steps.
