Helping Abused and Traumatized Children

Integrating Directive and Nondirective Approaches

by Eliana Gil, Ph.D.; foreword by John Briere, Ph.D.

Here is the distilled wisdom of a remarkably talented therapist. 

This uncommonly helpful book draws from cognitive-behavioral, expressive, and family therapies to present an integrated approach to treating traumatized children. The author tailors treatment to the needs of each child by using both directive and nondirective approaches. She shows how to target trauma-related symptoms while also helping children process painful feelings and memories that are difficult to verbalize. Detailed case studies illustrate the unique situation of each child, the decision-making process of the therapist, and the effectiveness of developmentally informed, creative, and flexible interventions.
