Description

Creating safety, hope, and secure attachment to transform traumatic memories.

In this accessible guide, Courtney Armstrong distills discoveries from attachment theory, brain science, and post-traumatic growth into practical strategies you can use to: 1) build trust and a secure therapeutic relationship; 2) transform traumatic memories into stories of triumph and courage; and 3) help clients cultivate resilience and a positive post-trauma identity.

Packed with dozens of scripts, step-by-step worksheets, and inspiring client stories, this book gives you tools for each phase of the trauma therapy process and shows you how to:

 

 

  • Engage and motivate clients based on their attachment style
  • Manage trauma-related dissociation, anxiety, and anger
  • Transform traumatic memories so they no longer haunt your client
  • Work with different types of trauma, from sexual abuse to traumatic grief
  • Evoke inner resources for healing and positive emotional states
  • Counter compassion fatigue and burnout so youcan thrive as a therapist
