"I strongly endorse many aspects of the authors’ rationale. Specifically, a text is needed that is from a social work perspective, updates the well-respected existing texts, is focused on clinical interventions, and especially uses psychodynamic and attachment theories. I would buy this book myself.... I am excited about this book. It addresses an area that I believe is extremely important. More helping professionals are realizing the central role trauma plays in many of our clients’ lives and this text has the potential to address the lack of education about trauma. In addition, the psychodynamic perspective is appealing because of the natural fit of this theory with understanding trauma and its impact."
