Overview

INTRODUCTION TO WORKING WITH ADULT SURVIVORS OF CHILDHOOD TRAUMA: TECHNIQUES AND STRATEGIES represents the first primer for practice with victims of childhood trauma. Author, professor, and practicing social worker Carolyn Knight focuses on skills and techniques for which there is solid theoretical and empirical support, emphasizing strategies that are likely to be useful to practitioners of varying professional backgrounds and working in diverse practice settings.

Dr. Knight is a frequently invited speaker and continuing education workshop leader for topics related to working with survivors of trauma, including ethical implications, considerations for supervision, group work, and strategies that assist trauma survivors in containing and expressing feelings. Dr. Knight also is a sought-after in-service training instructor and has extensive experience with front-line staff and supervisors in juvenile justice, child welfare, and mental health settings.
  • Readers of this text will be able to identify the nature of trauma and its long-term effects, understand the nature and importance of the therapeutic relationship in group and individual treatment, and recognize and manage manifestations of transference and counter-transference in those same settings.
  • The text prepares future practitioners to engage in self-care and professional activities that minimize burnout, distinguish the stages of healing in group and individual treatment, and identify and become proficient using therapeutic techniques designed specifically to help adult survivors of childhood trauma.
  • Detailed case examples illustrate how professional helpers in a variety of settings, wearing a variety of professional hats, can acknowledge and work with the trauma in ways that benefit survivors--even when their energies and those of their clients are concentrated on present-day difficulties like drug addiction, child maltreatment, or mental illness.
  • Case excerpts are drawn from actual clinical practice, although to honor confidentiality of clients and clinicians, names and details have been modified.
