Format Booklet
ISBN 9780578459714

From the author: "As a trauma therapist, whenever I realize that I've given the same psycho-educational mini-lecture to multiple clients, I create a one-page handout that summarizes the topic.  After doing this for five years, I have more than thirty handouts.  At the encouragement of colleagues, I have put them together in a collection for other therapists to use with their clients.  These handouts cover three broad categories: handouts about trauma treatment and recovery; handouts about EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing); and general psychotherapy.  The page opposite each handout contains notes to therapists about the origins and use of the handout."
