Haworth Maltreatment and Trauma Press, Sep 30, 2005 - Family & Relationships - 220 pages
A child immersed in a conflicted family life may be forced to cope with a multitude of trauma, including violence, abuse, and insecurity. In A Safe Place to Grow: A Group Treatment Manual for Children in Conflicted, Violent, and Separating Homes, highly respected experts provide mental health professionals with a step-by-step guide to group treatment for children scamed by family environments of conflict and abuse. Separate sections focus on two different age groups, adjusting the treatment to be appropriate for big or little kids while presenting a comfortable multi-ethnic, multi-cultural model. This easy-to-understand manual is a developmentally appropriate treatment curriculum for traumatized school-aged children, and includes illustrations, appendixes of supplementary information, and a comprehensive bibliography.
