Dr. Courtois and Dr. Ford effectively straddle imparting information that educates the new-to-trauma clinician and advancing the knowledge and understanding of the seasoned expert. How do they do this? The authors weave historic information and contemporary literature and thinking with pragmatic and process elements of treatment; they demonstrate the efficacy of sequenced therapy through different methods, including case vignettes and two composite clients, Hector and Doris, who are discussed throughout the book. All of this creates rich complex trauma context and content. In addition, essential pragmatics are provided, such as evidence-informed assessment instruments paired with treatment goals, screening questions and ground rules for groups, sample treatment policy and informed-consent statements, and vivid trauma vocabulary. But Courtois and Ford go even further and offer supplementary resources on the publisher’s Web site, including self-reflection questions for each chapter, self-help resources, workbooks, useful Web sites, and an extensive bibliography of trauma-related publications.
