"Klein and Schermer are brilliant scholars, and their contributions are the glue that unites this sophisticated collection. Chapters offer disparate perspectives on what the editors refer to as 'creating a healing matrix.' In particular, the volume addresses the group's specific power to bring together the dissociated aspects of the traumatized patient's personality by engaging the whole group and its members as mirrors and healing agents. This book is ideal for seasoned clinicians, researchers, and teachers, although novices also might find huge benefit in the liberal use of clinical examples. Bravo to the editors for producing a volume of great value to the group therapy field, with a clarity that is badly needed in the area of healing trauma."--Anne Alonso, PhD, Past President, American Group Psychotherapy Association; Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
"Klein and Schermer have brought together clinicians from diverse perspectives, who present practical and innovative ways of using group treatment in overcoming the impairments caused by a wide spectrum of traumata. All therapists will find important insights in this book. I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in gaining deeper understanding into the manifestations and treatment of trauma in group psychotherapy." --Walter N. Stone, MD, Past President, American Group Psychotherapy Association; Professor of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine
