Summary, etc.:
This book addresses the multifaceted nature of trauma by bringing together the many theoretical perspectives that explain how people cope with traumatic life experiences. Ranging between attachment, person-centred and anti-oppressive approaches, each chapter takes a contemporary approach and provides students and practitioners with an in-depth analysis of the histories, core assumptions and critiques of each perspective. Rich in theory and practice, case examples and case scenarios run throughout to demonstrate the integration of each approach in to real-life practice and to illustrate the different responses to trauma.
