Client groups with complex trauma
Pages 28

This chapter discusses typical categories of clients who have complex trauma. The social, societal, and historical context in which severe violence occurs is an important factor in effectively interpreting a client’s specifi c situation and invaluable for the therapeutic process, both for the client and the therapist. This chapter does not aim to provide an exhaustive description of the client groups; it merely offers some information about dynamics that may be useful during treatment.
