Damion Grasso has developed a resource which will be helpful for developing and experienced clinicians. This is a highly flexible resource which provides a range of tools for working with traumatized children, adolescents and their families, and which can be drawn upon and incorporated into the intervention that the clinician is using. I liked the breadth of this work, with ideas for all stages of the therapeutic journey with the children and their carers. This resource is visual, creative and attractively set out. A good book to have on the shelf when fresh ideas are needed.

Dr. Damion Grasso has created an extraordinarily valuable resource for all therapists working with children, adolescents and families in the aftermath of traumatic experiences. The clinical ideas, therapeutic exercises and helpful forms provided in this text reflect Dr. Grasso's exceptional creativity, clinical sensitivity and dedication to supporting the effective implementation of evidence-based treatments with this vulnerable population of children.

This book provides outstanding practical guidance and exercises to augment clinical work using evidence-based models of therapy for traumatized children and adolescents. It is vital addition to the libraries of practicing clinicians, and the book will be of great benefit to trainees. I recommend it highly.

This Workbook is a unique and invaluable resource for clinicians and clinical trainees who treat traumatized children. It will be required reading for every therapist and trainee whom I supervise in the UConn Child Trauma Clinic, and should be required reading in every children's mental health clinic and every graduate training program preparing mental health, social work, and counseling professionals to work therapeutically with children and teens.
