The Mental Health Clinicians Trauma Pack includes:
Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors – integrates a neurobiologically informed understanding of trauma, dissociation, and attachment with a practical approach to treatment, all communicated in straightforward language accessible to both client and therapist. Readers will be exposed to a model that emphasizes “resolution”—a transformation in the relationship to one’s self, replacing shame, self-loathing, and assumptions of guilt with compassionate acceptance.
The Resilient Practitioner – gives students and practitioners the tools they need to create their own personal balance between caring for themselves and caring for others. This new edition includes a new chapter on resiliency, an updated self-care action plan, self-reflection exercises in each chapter, and a revised resiliency inventory for practitioners.
Humanising Mental Health Care in Australia – explores the trauma-informed perspective across four sections. The first outlines theory, constructs and effects of abuse and trauma. The second section addresses the effects of abuse and trauma on specific populations. The third section outlines a diverse range of individual treatment approaches. The final section takes a broader perspective, examining the importance of culture and training as well as the organisation and delivery of services.
Trauma Informed Practices with Children and Adolescents – a sourcebook of practical approaches to working with children and adolescents that synthesizes research from leading trauma specialists and translates it into easy-to-implement techniques. The approaches laid out address the sensory and somatic experiences of trauma within structured formats that meet the “best practices” criteria for trauma-informed care: safety, self-regulation, trauma integration, healthy relationships, and healthy environments.
Treating Chronically Traumatized Children – if left untreated, the memories of childhood abuse and neglect can have a devastating effect on the development of children and young people. How can these children be motivated and engage in trauma-focused therapy? Treating Chronically Traumatized Children: The Sleeping Dogs Method describes a structured method to overcome resistance and enable children to wake these sleeping dogs safely, so these children heal from their trauma.
Treating the Trauma Survivor: An Essential Guide to Trauma-Informed Care – a practical guide to assist mental health, health care, and social service providers in providing trauma-informed care. This resource provides essential information in order to understand the impacts of trauma by summarizing key literature in an easily accessible and user-friendly format.
PEP Talks for Overcoming Anxiety & Fear – Each card has three parts: on the front is a quote or simple psychological technique, on the back is an explanation of the quote or technique, and also on the back is a behavioural assignment. You can use the cards any way you like. You can try a new card every day or every week or whenever you need a little “pep talk.” Just pick a card and you or your clients will take another step forward towards a deep sense of emotional control and well-being.
