Colin A. Ross, M.D. and Naomi Halpern C.Q.S.W. have developed a new treatment manual for treating Trauma, Dissociation and Complex Comorbidity. The manual builds on a previous book, The Trauma Model by expanding on the ideas and providing concrete, practical skills on the 'how to' of therapy. Trauma Model Therapy is written primarily for therapists, but can also be read by the general public. The book provides hands-on techniques, strategies and interventions in two ways: through description and discussion and through transcripts of therapy conservations. The research, clinical interventions and ideas presented are a combination of the authors' experience, original ideas and a composite of the work of many prominent researchers, and clinicians in the field.

She has presented her nationally and internationally. Naomi has provided emergency consultation related to the development of trauma and psychosocial training programs for the United Nations.

Review:

This is a straightforward, very accessible book that covers in detail the theory, assessment, and treatment of severe dissociative disorders. The authors have spent many years studying and working with the effects of trauma, and it shows. Refreshingly devoid of unnecessary jargon, and relentlessly demystifying. Highly recommended! --John Briere, Ph.D.; University of Southern California

Trauma Model Therapy is a much-needed addition to the professional literature that is also accessible to the lay reader. Authors Ross and Halpern give cogent descriptions of dissociation, dissociative processes, and dissociative disorders and place them in the context of a trauma model. In addition to the practical discussion of the principles of treatment, specific techniques are presented in detail. It is this description of techniques with transcripts that sets this book apart. By studying this section and applying the techniques, practitioners will learn a great deal about how to approach and work with clients who dissociate. A very practical resource that I highly recommend. --Christine A. Courtois, Ph.D. ; Christine A. Courtois & Associates, Washington D.C. - Co-Editor: Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders: An Evidence-Based Guide; Author: Healing the Incest Wound: Adult Survivors in Therapy; Recollections of Sexual A

This is a book that many clinicians and psychotherapy researchers have been waiting for. Trauma Model Therapy is an important step towards the articulation of a treatment protocol for dissociative and personality disordered survivors of childhood trauma. At last, psychotherapists and researchers alike are offered clear, rationale-and theory-based, guidelines that come as close as possible to a much needed therapy manual. Ross and Halpern not only delineate concrete intervention suggestions that will encourage uninitiated clinicians to work with suffering survivors, but they also present a comprehensive psychotherapy model that could be adapted for standardized research purposes. --Eli Somer, Ph.D.; University of Haifa, Israel; President, European Society for Trauma and Dissociation
