An innovative somatic and attachment-based treatment for working with children and adolescents who suffer from complex trauma and neglect

“[This] is a ground-breaking new approach to treating traumatized children, based on the combination of keen clinical observation, sensory integration, and a deep understanding of the latest advances in the neuroscience of trauma.”—Bessel van der Kolk, MD, best-selling author of The Body Keeps the Score

The SMART (Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment) program addresses three key processes that can be derailed by developmental trauma–somatic regulation, trauma processing, and attachment-building–and uses movement and sensation to target the neurological structures that support emotional and behavioral regulation. Transforming Trauma in Children and Adolescents teaches therapists the eight key skills required for SMART mastery and provides seven regulation tools for clients, helping children and adolescents manage their feelings and attend to developmental tasks like making friends, participating at school, learning to play with others, and developing a sense of self that includes–but isn’t defined by–the trauma they’ve experienced. Enriched with case studies and recommended adaptations, the book includes resources for parents and other caregivers who want to provide ongoing supportive care outside the clinical setting.

    A comprehensive and accessible practice model to address childhood complex trauma. Using a three-pronged “spiral" approach "SMART" therapy provides a roadmap for reworking traumatic childhood experiences with an emphasis on the child’s physical and emotional needs. Citing a variety of case examples through a combined sensory motor, attachment building, and trauma processing lens, readers will learn how to evaluate and provide "SMART" interventions across different settings. Intervention highlights include video reflection, therapeutic use of self, and tools for regulation.
