5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny!, 26 Nov 2013
This is a great book, one you will be able to refer to and dip into when needed. It is written in a simple way and easily understood. Each chapter is dedicated to a particular subject with top tips and excercises to use with survivors. I would recommend this book for anyone working with survivors, but also to counselling students who will be able to learn more about relationship patterns, trauma and the neurobiology surrounding the responses displayed and how best to manage them.
I have read the authors previous books but feel that this one is a much awaited book in which you can increase your knowledge, your clients knowledge on bodily responses and use of skills beneficial in the therapeutic relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable guide for everyone supporting survivors of abuse, 20 Oct 2013

This review is from: Counselling Skills for Working with Trauma (Paperback)
There is much to praise in this excellent book by Christiane Sanderson. It is not just authoritative, it is blessedly accessible and, as is always the case with work from this immensely experienced therapist and consultant, it is a pleasure to read. The uniquely valuable feature of Counselling Skills is its coverage of the challenges posed by the symptoms of complex trauma, including the role of dissociation and problems posed by attachment and relational difficulties. It is essential reading for those working with survivors of any kind of abuse, including childhood sexual abuse, but its message should be broadcast more widely. Teachers, lawyers, doctors and probation officers should read this book, as should everyone to whom survivors might turn for informed support. Christiane also provides compassionate down-to-earth advice on practitioner self-care. Altogether it will be an invaluable guide to those involved in this demanding field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about Trauma, particularly complex trauma, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Counselling Skills for Working with Trauma (Paperback)
this book is set out so well, so that it can be dipped into when needed. As a counsellor it was so informative and simple to read, containing lots of information about complex trauma and its symptoms and exercises to carry out with clients as they work through this

I would however put a warning here that it can trigger issues related to complex trauma from the past and if so you need to find a counsellor rather than try to use this as a self help book
