Brief Treatments for the Traumatized: A Project of the Green Cross Foundation

Synopsis

Trauma is now being recognized as a major mental health challenge, with clients from children to the elderly presenting symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, often with no awareness of the cause. Yet managed care--and the growing incidence of trauma patients, presenting increased demands on existing professionals--requires brief treatments whenever possible. This book explains how to apply brief, existing, generic treatments to help manage the traumatized and diminish or eliminate their traumatic symptoms.
