3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Irving K. Augustine on April 13 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr. Johnson looks for resources for effectively helping war trauma survivors. Her language is more than adequate professionally but doesn't get in the way of easily understanding what she is saying and where she is taking us. Her illustrations are earthy, practical and fun, all the while dealing with material that challenges the best of us as therapists. When we wake up in the night in cold sweats, the therapist isn't there. However my spouse is!

Great resource for those working with immigrants with war trauma previously factored into their equation.

An Exceptional Resource for Experienced Clinicians Sept. 28 2007
By Rosemary Bannon Tyksinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This slim volume offers a clear overview of the essentials of successful treatment with this very difficult population.

Trauma survivors frequently evince high levels of emotional pain, can be hostile and controlling in their attachment interactions, have difficulty trusting their partners, and have high needs for reassurance and emotional security. It is not uncommon for trauma survivors to have histories of early attachment disorganization that, even in adulthood, result in high levels of emotional reactivity, suspicion, hostile attribution, revivification of early traumatic experience, affect dysregulation, deficits in metacognition, and low stress tolerance. These characteristics seriously hinder the formation of secure attachment bonds in adult romantic relationships and present a therapeutic mine field for both the couple and therapist.

Johnson clarifies the underlying issues inherent in the couple dynamics of trauma survivors and describes how she models affective attunement, empathic mirroring, and guides the couple into safe mutual emotional disclosure and responsiveness.

Other reviewers have criticized this book for its dry academic style and lack of accessiblity. Because of this there may be better volumes for those who seek to learn the fundamentals of couple therapy or for those who want to learn the basics of working with trauma survivors. However, for the experienced clinician Johnson provides a concise guide that pinpoints precise clinical leverage points and a theoretically coherent rationale for specific interventions.

Johnson's approach is theoretically and empirically grounded and is written with compassion, sensitivity, and clarity. It is the best resource I've found for this important treatment niche.

Systemic treatment for trauma Feb. 15 2007
By Thomas V. Frederick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy with Trauma Survivors: Strengthening Attachment Bonds provides a rich resource for MFTs. First, Johnson argues for the necessity of placing relationship treatment in what is often thought of as an "individual" form of psychopathology. Second, she clearly delineated the differences between the standard approach to EFT and modifications for addressing trauma with EFT. Her inclusion of several case studies has been helpful for understanding the application of EFT with different kinds of trauma. Finally, her text is replete with systems thinking that I find invaluable as both a marriage and family therapist and a professor.

By D. Best - Published on Amazon.com

Thia book was a really good tool in creating a stronger relationship with my husband. The case studies in chapter 6 to the end of the book were the most helpful in providing clear guidance. I am recommnending this book to all my friends to strengthen their relationships.

Great book for attachment based therapists March 26 2006
By E. B. Feldhousen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a doctoral student in marriage and family therapy with an interest in an attachment based approaches to working with traumatized couples, I found this book extremely helpful. Susan Johnson really spells out the theory, and gives powerful examples.

Disapointing and boring Dec 24 2006
By Dr. John Laughlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book adds little to the present litterature on the subject of traum and is written in a boring, academic, removed style. You can get much better informaion about trauma in other works and as for EFT, Dr. Johnson's first book is a gem and just read and reread that.
