Based on work carried out by staff at the Cotswold Community over a number of years, Therapeutic Approaches in Work with Traumatised Children and Young People provides a clear and comprehensive link between theory and practice. The author shows how practice in the field of residential child care, fostering and other areas of work with children can be developed in a way that is soundly based on theory.

Meeting weekly to discuss and review their therapeutic practice in the light of relevant theoretical approaches, the staff at the Cotswold Community produced an invaluable record of working with emotionally traumatised children. The result, brought together here by Patrick Tomlinson, is an in-depth account of a 'thinking culture' which provides continual opportunities to respond to issues in innovative ways, and includes useful suggestions on a range of key issues including education and play, sexuality and aggression.
