Greenwald, R. (2005). Child trauma handbook: A guide for helping trauma-exposed children and adolescents. New York: Haworth.
This home study training teaches hands-on clinical skills, guided by clear instructions and scripts, for working with children and adolescents who have been exposed to significant trauma or loss. The content and methods are research-supported and proven effective. This in-depth program covers child trauma theory, impact of trauma and loss, therapeutic relationship, self-care for counselors/therapists, identification and assessment of traumatized kids, working with parents and other care-givers to help traumatized kids, and directly helping kids to manage their symptoms, resolve their trauma/loss memories, and prepare to cope effectively with future challenges. The final section focuses on what parents and paraprofessionals can do with distressed children and adolescents whom they supervise in home, school, residential, and recreational settings.
