"A marvelous conise yet comprehensive collection of tools for the trauma therapist. Dr. Sweeton describes the techniques in just the right level of detail to enable the reader to both deliver the intervention and provide a cogent, motivating rationale for its use. There's something in here to help every patient! I'll be consulting this creative volume for years to come."
- Alex Jordan, PhD, Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital
"This book is a tremendous resource for mental health providers and their clients. It is jam-packed with worksheets that lead readers through brain-based tools including focused breathing, awareness of body, movement, meditations and cognitive techniques. The meat consists of an extensive set of tools based on bottom up (using the body to change the brain) and top-down (using the reflective capabilities of the brain) approaches to brain change designed to help trauma survivors. An amazing book! Every therapist will want to use the tools in this book whether they specialize in trauma or not."
- Debra Burdick, LCSW, BCN, author of numerous books on mindfulness and ADHD, including Mindfulness Skills Workbook for Clinicians and Clients
"I love this book! With information and research for clinicians followed by protocols and scripts for each trauma tool, these top down (cognitive) approaches are very different than the usual thought challenging methods of CBT. I definitely will be adding this book to my current library and urge everyone working with these clients to do the same."
