SMARTmoves Partners New Book: Transforming Trauma in Children and Adolescents


“The intervention model was explicitly developed to alter chronic patterns of trauma-induced somatic dysregulation by incorporating sensory inputs from the vestibular system, proprioception, and touch (tactile system) to facilitate the healing process. Through poignant case examples, the authors illustrate how these “movement senses” contribute to an individual’s sense of agency, self-regulation, groundedness and identity across time. SMART has been implemented with a wide range of clients and service settings, from outpatient and home-based work with mothers and their toddlers and young children, to older adolescents with developmental impairment or severe emotional disturbance in residential treatment settings. The book includes helpful charts and beautiful colored insets that summarize therapist skills and illustrate various youth trauma symptom characteristics and state shifts.

Overall, it is an extremely valuable clinical resource for therapists undertaking complex trauma intervention with children, adolescents and caregivers.”
