" Trauma Transformed is must reading for therapists in substance abuse counseling, mental health counseling, and work with war veterans, and above all social workers engaged in disaster relief efforts. There is a wealth of knowledge in these pages that will benefit all practitioners. The topics covered are timely and highly relevant to social work practice in today's world. Trauma Transformed is one of the most fascinating books to come out in social work in some time. The use of personal narratives by practitioners who have worked in various aspects of trauma therapy& mdash;with children, with disaster victims, with war veterans& mdash;is an extremely effective style of presentation. The situations of relationship, refugee, combat, historical-cultural, and collective trauma are all covered. Rare for an edited volume of this sort, each chapter is as beautifully written as the last. I can't wait to refer my students to this book." -- Katherine van Wormer, author of Human Behavior and the Social Environment, Micro Level
