"This book is amazing, bringing together research with issues of practice to provide a treasure of usable knowledge that will help create better practice and improve future research. The outstanding editors and authors provide lucid reviews of research findings and connect them directly to key practical issues about trauma, stress, and memory. This book demonstrates emphatically how careful research can shape and inform practice for courts, parents, teachers, and clinicians." --Kurt Fischer, Charles Bigelow Professor of Education and Director, Mind, Brain, and Education Program, Harvard University "This is a superb volume. It is remarkably broad in scope, including both basic research on the neurobiological correlates of trauma and memory, and applied research on best practice in child interviewing. At the same time, it does not sacrifice depth for breadth, with the leading researchers in their respective fields providing quite comprehensive reviews of the most recent literature. Researchers will better understand how their work might translate into practice, and practitioners can update their understanding of the theory underlying evidence-based approaches." --Thomas D. Lyon, Judge Edward J. and Ruey L. Guirado Chair in Law and Psychology, University of Southern California "A must read for anyone who seeks to understand how adverse childhood experiences, from natural disasters to child abuse, are experienced and remembered, and how those memories affect our development. As foremost experts in the field, the editors lay a foundation for decision-making in social work, counseling, psychology, medicine, law, and law enforcement informed by the latest findings in neuroscience and human development. Practitioners, students, educators, policy-makers, and researchers alike will gain a rich understanding of the intricacies, underpinnings, and diverse viewpoints in the field not available elsewhere in the literature."----Karen J. Saywitz, Department of Pediatrics, Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities, UCLA School of Medicine
