A Coherent Guide to Treating Trauma

Trauma Therapy expert Dr. Robert Rhoton launches  groundbreaking guidebook for mental health professionals

Wanting to shift treatment approaches to a competency-based, salutogenic approach which greatly improves clinical outcomes for those being treated for trauma, Dr. Robert Rhoton, shares his knowledge about the process for effective trauma therapy work to help them better understand how to treat trauma in a way that focuses on assets over deficits. 

Trauma Competency for the 21st Century: A Salutogenic Active Ingredients Approach to Treatment presents an innovative guide specifically for therapists, psychologists, and clinicians to assist clients suffering from chronic stress/PTSD by implementing an innovative, salutogenic (competency and resource-based) philosophy into their trauma therapy. With this groundbreaking work, Rhoton seeks to point out to mental health professionals that focusing on a client’s assets is a better way of providing treatment and care suited for their needs. 

“What keeps me going is that I see all of the ineffectual work done and I mourn for the underserved clients,” says Rhoton. 

The book identifies four active ingredients that should be present in all trauma treatment and the Empowerment and Resilience Structure treatment manual which pinpoints the critical components and baseline standards for the field of trauma counseling that are not model dependent and are designed for immediate application.
