With trauma-related disorder representing a major public health issue, and considering the increasingly diverse populations being treated for trauma, there is a great need for appropriate treatments. This manual provides detailed guidance for delivering culturally adapted Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of PTSD and other trauma-related disorders. Offering a unique approach that emphasises the somatic and sensorial aspects of experiencing and emotion regulation, this book is also appropriate for diverse populations with a varied range of education levels. This treatment is proven to be well received and effective for a wide range of groups, including Cambodian and Vietnamese refugees, Spanish-speaking populations, Afghan, Egyptian, Syrian, and Turkish populations, and even South African tribal groups. Written in a clear and accessible way to allow the treatment to be understood and utilised by a wide-range of mental health practitioners, students, and trainees working with multicultural populations, refugees and immigrants.
