Ordered it for a graduate class, and it seems ok so far.
Althought I don't plan on running trauma groups I thought this was an effective tool to assist Counselors in working w/ trauma situations. I would recommend this book.
We ordered this for our DV women's counselor; haven't heard any feedback but she's great at ordering materials for I assume it fit the bill.
