Trauma

Contemporary Directions in Trauma Theory, Research, and Practice, second edition

Edited by Shoshana Ringel and Jerrold R. Brandell

Columbia University Press

An expanded and revised edition of the first social work text to focus specifically on the theoretical and clinical issues associated with trauma, this comprehensive anthology incorporates the latest research in trauma theory and clinical applications. It presents key developments in the conceptualization of trauma and covers a wide range of clinical treatments.

Trauma features coverage of emerging therapeutic modalities and clinical themes, focusing on the experiences of historically disenfranchised, marginalized, oppressed, and vulnerable groups. Clinical chapters discuss populations and themes including cultural and historical trauma among Native Americans, the impact of bullying on children and adolescents, the use of art therapy with traumatically bereaved children, historical and present-day trauma experiences of incarcerated African American women, and the effects of trauma treatment on the therapist. Other chapters examine trauma-related interventions derived from diverse theoretical frameworks, such as cognitive-behavioral theory, attachment theory, mindfulness theory, and psychoanalytic theory.
With the inclusion of excellent chapters on LGBTQ clients, clients who have been incarcerated, combat trauma, the effects of bullying, and cultural trauma, this second edition of Trauma becomes very relevant to vulnerable and at-risk populations. Social workers will appreciate the depth of multiple perspectives and the artful integration of clinical practice throughout. This is an important book for every social work student and practitioner. Joan Berzoff, professor emerita, Smith College
By exploring the theoretical underpinnings of the psychosocial impact of trauma, the authors provide the reader with clear mechanisms for understanding how trauma affects people. An excellent survey of the many facets of trauma and surely the best textbook for teaching. Eileen Dombo, Catholic University of America
Originating from the editors’ rich experience, this is a comprehensive book bringing a diversity of theories and tools centered on new developments in the conceptualization of attachment trauma and trauma-related interventions. This is a must-read, and its scope should prove pertinent to undergraduates and clinicians from all modalities of psychotherapy. Orit Badouk Epstein, editor of Attachment: New Directions in Psychotherapy and Relational Psychoanalysis
The second edition of Trauma is a must-have for mental health clinicians. The book provides expert descriptions of the leading forms of trauma therapy and how to apply them with diverse populations. I encourage any therapist who works with traumatized clients to study this amazing book. Russell Carr, M.D.
The editors offer an expanded view on the topic of trauma through an excellent collection of chapters addressing theory, application, intervention, and research. Environmental issues are addressed, special populations are highlighted, and discussions are research-informed. Students, practitioners, and researchers will find this an excellent resource. Kathryn S. Collins, University of Maryland
