From the innovators of psychodramatic experiential treatment for trauma comes this exciting and exhilarating new book on the art, science and craft of experiential treatment for trauma survivors. The book is a delightful weaving of academic research, practical clinically-based and research-tested tools and techniques, and compelling stories of personal change and growth from practitioners at the front lines of trauma treatment around the world.

This book is a crystal, each facet of which is complete in itself. It glitters with the simplicity of the core principles of the Therapeutic Spiral Model, facilitating embodied learning and reframing in the brain.

An eloquent and moving account of how trauma can be healed; a literary tapestry describing both the supporting neuroscience and the creative collective that is TSM. Transcending time, place, and cultures, [this book] gives us more than hope - it gives us a design for global healing.

This book is a fascinating mixture of history, theory and practice, recounting the development and application of the Therapeutic Spiral Model... The case examples... include clients with eating disorders and addictions, domestic violence survivors and perpetrators, traumatised families, and offenders with unresolved trauma... this book does a good job and makes fascinating reading.
