This book was written by researchers and clinicians involved in protocol CTN-0015, which is described in several sections of the book and also serves as one of the final chapter's three case studies on moving research to practice.

Clinicians seeking to treat women experiencing both a history of trauma and the effects of substance abuse will find this book to be a hands-on guide. The intertwined nature of trauma and addiction is explored through a review of recent research, with a focus on treatment options for post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction. Vital background material describes the effects of trauma on emotion regulation, interpersonal functioning, parenting, and physical health. Also addressed are the many real-world challenges clinicians face in implementing trauma-focused therapeutic approaches in community-based substance abuse treatment. (Book, Print, English, 2009)
