This fully updated second edition presents theory, research, and practice guidelines for short term, evidence based individual treatment for adults experiencing the effects of complex relational trauma. Disrupted narrative and emotional processes are common effects of complex trauma, and emotion focused therapy for trauma (EFTT) is well suited to address these difficulties. Clients with complex trauma often suffer long term challenges after repeated exposure to violence and betrayals of trust, typically by attachment figures in the form of child abuse and neglect. The authors bring more than 25 years of research and clinical expertise to this evidence-based treatment model, which enables therapists to skillfully navigate the unique challenges facing these clients. Chapters present practical aspects of EFTT alongside supporting research, allowing clinicians from different theoretical perspectives to either apply the complete package, or integrate aspects of the model into their current practice. This comprehensive and essential resource is fully updated with current developments in research, clinical practice, and training.
