"As crisis and trauma increasingly intrude into the lives of children and teens, Webb and her talented team of front-line clinicians once again help us to understand these kids' needs and the value of intervention using a wide range of play and expressive media. The volume captures the ever-evolving nature of trauma, its effects on our most vulnerable populations, and, most important, how clinicians across disciplines can be of help."--Lawrence C. Rubin, PhD, ABPP, LMHC, RPT-S, Department of Social Sciences and Counseling, Biscayne College, St. Thomas University "This book does an eloquent job of combining both the child and adolescent foci of the trauma experience into a digestible text and guide for practitioners. It offers a variety of effective therapeutic interventions in a format suitable for new and seasoned clinicians alike. This is a useful text for a class focusing on child or youth trauma in social work, psychology, or counseling."--Julie Anne Laser-Maira, MSW, LCSW, PhD, Graduate School of Social Work, University of Denver "Rarely is such an informative book so delightful to read. Clinicians at any level of professional development will appreciate the scope and depth of this updated, timely, trauma-focused book. Readers will finish this volume with an enormous advantage in understanding not only how crises affect youth, but also how to work effectively to promote adaptive coping, positive change, and growth."--Janine Shelby, PhD, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles
