This book is aimed at practitioners working with couples and families dealing with the impact of a traumatic/stressful event, with chapters considering events such as the loss of a child, infertility in a couple, sexual abuse of a partner, traumatization of a parent, traumatization of a child, impact of a homicide, and the impact of health problems of aging parents. Therapists are continually faced with these issues in their practices, and cases involving these situations are often among the most intense and emotionally demanding that they will confront. One of the supports a therapist can have available when confronted with such a situation is a practical guide to effective intervention. This book would provide the practitioner with just that -- a hands-on, practical guide that deals with how to appropriately respond to each specific stressor that is outlined in the book. Because each chapter is devoted to a different stressor, the practitioner is able to easily reference the desired material, in order to anticipate relevant issues, and plan for an intervention that will be based on the solid experience these authors will bring to the book.
