Featuring a wealth of clinical examples, this book facilitates implementation of Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in a range of contexts. It demonstrates how assessment strategies and treatment components can be tailored to optimally serve clients' needs while maintaining overall fidelity to the TF-CBT model. Coverage includes ways to overcome barriers to implementation in residential settings, foster placements, and low-resource countries. Contributors also describe how to use play to creatively engage kids of different ages, and present TF-CBT applications for adolescents with complex trauma, children with developmental challenges, military families struggling with the stresses of deployment, and Latino and Native American children.

"Provides extensive, clinically grounded illustrations of how TF-CBT can be flexibly used to address trauma impact for children in varied and complex circumstances. Therapists will find critical information for enhancing therapy effectiveness in diverse populations, from foster children to military families. Chapters provide specific adjustments and adaptations for each of the standard components of TF-CBT, supported with relevant case examples. The volume demonstrates how this empirically supported intervention can be broadly applied to the full range of children and families affected by trauma. It also has utility for graduate students learning evidence-based practice. The book shows that it is possible to remain faithful to a model while making population-specific adaptations."

"This outstanding contribution helps professionals and students gain knowledge about many different applications of TF-CBT. The book conveys the flexibility of this important approach and describes how to adapt it for a variety of settings and populations--for example, military families, children with developmental disabilities, and culturally diverse children. Particularly helpful are the discussions of strategies for tailoring TF-CBT to specific children's needs, such as by incorporating play or drawing on cultural traditions. This book should be required reading for all who work with traumatized children and their families, regardless of theoretical orientation, because it elucidates the impact of traumatic experiences--and meaningful ways to intervene--so well."

"Edited and written by expert clinicians, this book presents state-of-the-art treatments for traumatized children, adolescents, and their families. Cohen, Mannarino, and Deblinger are key contributors to recent advances in trauma-informed mental health services who have decades of experience in the field. A vital addition to the libraries of practicing clinicians, the book will also be of great benefit to students and trainees. I recommend it most highly."
