Book description

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.

Reviews

‘Dr. Devon Hinton's new book Multiplex CBT for Traumatized Multicultural Populations: Treating PTSD and Related Disorders is an innovative, timely and invaluable contribution to the clinical literature. In this book, mental health problems are thoroughly understood by not only bridging mind and body issues but by also embedding patients into their social and cultural contexts. The interventions described benefit from patients' cultural backgrounds which makes clinical interventions more applicable to ethnic minorities and refugee communities. Furthermore, Multiplex CBT describes a systematic set of evidence-based affect regulation strategies, including somatic affect regulation interventions that are illustrated in simple and concrete terms. The broadness and depth of Dr Hinton's multiplex conceptual model is only matched by the richness and clarity of its therapeutic tools.'

‘This book distills Devon E. Hinton's excellent research on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for PTSD into a hands-on approach designed specifically for clinicians working with refugees and minoritized ethnoracial groups. The material also covers clear explanations about the role in PTSD of emotion regulation, negative affect, traumatic associations and triggers, and catastrophic cognitions. Specific examples based on the author's first-hand experience with various cultural groups provide useful suggestions for every CBT step. A helpful balance between psychological and somatic approaches is maintained throughout, grounding usual CBT techniques in step-by-step instructions for mindfulness, visualization, and relaxation exercises. Based on findings from multiple treatment trials with diverse cultural communities, this book is a necessary adjunct for any therapist caring for people living with PTSD.'
