This book advocates utilising and combining an assortment of trauma treatment models. Based on ideas put forward in ‘The Body Remembers’ Babette Rothschild emphasises the importance of tailoring every trauma therapy to the particular needs of each individual client. Each varied and complex case (presented in a variety of writing styles: case reports, session-by-session narratives, single session transcripts) is approached with a combination of methods ranging from traditional psychodynamic approaches and applications of attachment theory to innovative trauma methods including EMDR and Levine’s SIBAM model.

Read on its own on or in conjunction with ‘The Body Remembers’ clinicians from all disciplines should discover new strategies and gain insight into how to combine various treatment models for increased success with traumatised clients.
