"The new edition of best-selling manual Self-soothing (2nd Edition) provides a range of self-soothing techniques that can be used by children and adults to combat everyday and extraordinary stress. Drawing on theories of attachment, stress and trauma, its potential use has been expanded to include working with a broader range of people, from vulnerable adults and others in mental health and clinical settings to traumatised groups receiving emergency support, from children who have experienced trauma or unstable family lives, to the parents struggling to care for them, and from members of the emergency services, to any workers at risk of experiencing secondary post-traumatic stress disorder. The manual provides anyone working with vulnerable or traumatised individuals or groups with accessible theoretical information and guidance, exercises that can be used at any time to induce relaxation and avoid the consequences of chronic stress. - PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
