Strengthening Family Coping Resources (SFCR) uses a skill-building, multi-family group framework to teach constructive resources to families who have a high exposure to stress and trauma. As an intervention for high-risk families, SFCR can cause a reduction in symptoms of traumatic distress and behavior problems and help families demonstrate higher functioning. The SFCR manual is based on a systemic, family approach and uses empirically-supported trauma treatment that focuses on family ritual, storytelling, and narration, which improves communication and understanding within family members. The manual is organized into three accessible parts: • Part 1 details the theoretical and empirical foundations of SFCR • Part 2 focuses on implementation and the clinical guidelines for conducting SFCR • Part 3 contains session guidelines focused on the multi-family group versions of SFCR Each session included in the intervention is structured according to specific guidelines, and instructions provide examples of what facilitators might say to a group. Formed through the input of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and anthropologists, Strengthening Family Coping Resources will help you reduce the symptoms of traumatic stress disorders and increase coping resources in children, adult caregivers, and the family system. It also provides a novel approach to addressing co-occurring traumatic reactions in multiple family members by including developmentally appropriate skill-building activities that are reinforced with family practice. For anyone working with families in a therapeutic capacity, this manual is a must-have resource.

Now, more than ever, therapists need the time and energy to heal their young clients. Rather than prove on paper that they need healing, we need to single out what is important and look for clear, solution-focused answers in the here and now. We must help our children learn how to live with the fear and uncertainty of today's world, and provide them with the tools to deal with stress. The Behavioral Management Guide is designed to help therapists develop comprehensive treatment plans for the disorders of every child they are working with, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Critical Incident Stress, and Bereavement. For example, it offers therapists guidelines for helping patients avoid hazards when grieving and, using a self-actualization developmental model, rise from the ashes of grief. This book ensures a smooth relationship with behavioral case managers. It will not only help in generating optimal treatment certification and authorization for your clients, but will help in the everyday task of writing chart notes which most practitioners despise, but are required by state law and the regulations of managed care companies. This manual will help the therapist document everything from the first phone call to the final discharge summary. Using this book as a guide, all a practitioner now needs to do for each client is to diagnose the problem, copy the treatment plan from the book, and place it in the client's chart. It's all there: the behavioral symptoms; other diagnostic possibilities; the objectives of treatment and short-term behavioral goals as well as the therapist's interventions to meet them. The plan even includes space to enter a summary of the session with room for your signature, as required, at the bottom of each page. Each diagnosis has been carefully researched and matched with the appropriate interventions for treating children. The Behavioral Management Guide can also be used as a teaching manual to train therapists on what to do in the treatment room, and to help seaso

My Living Will

My Living Will is the story of former major league pitcher John Trautwein, and the unbelievable tragedy which befell him and his family when his fifteen-year-old son, Will, took his own life. There had been no warnings, no obvious signs of anxiety, depression, or unhappiness; nothing. A family and a community were left stunned as they pondered how a young man like Will Trautwein, a healthy, happy, popular, athletic, and musical teenager, who came from such a loving home, could lose the will to live. “John Trautwein writes straight from the heart. And his words will save lives. The story Trautwein shares in these pages––a remarkable journey of passion and purpose––will literally save lives.” • Jeffrey Marx, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Season of Life “John Trautwein’s story inspires hope. It empowers people, and it gives its readers the ‘hope for life.’ The triumph that this story imparts arouses the goodness in everyone as it drives people toward action.” • Joe Girardi, Manager, The New York Yankees “In my twenty-two years of broadcasting, I have told many stories of triumph over tragedy, but the story of Will Trautwein and his family has stayed with me. The loss of such a vibrant young man and the strength of his family to use their heartache to help has had an impact on how I parent my daughter, and how I report stories of teenage depression and suicide. This is a must-read if you have a teenager in your life.” • Stephany Fisher, Anchor, CBS News, Atlanta “Ever wonder if a young person in your own home might be at risk? Read this book. In “My Living Will,” John Trautwein takes the emotions of loss and turns them into a message of awareness and hope. A must read for parents and teenagers alike!” • Dan Shaughnessy, The Boston Globe
