'The authors have done an excellent job of explaining CRM to the reader. They have integrated elements from many different sources, including neurophysiology, EMDR, anthropology, and my own Trauma Model into a novel and original therapy. They make use of many different therapeutic tools including cognitive therapy, eye positions, systems principles, and therapeutic metaphor. I look forward to reading the results of clinical trials of CRM in the future - CRM is a carefully constructed treatment model. Future books expanding on and supplementing this volume are anticipated.'Colin A. Ross, M.D., author, The Trauma Model: A Solution to the Problem of Comorbidity in Psychiatry. 'The Comprehensive Resource Model is an intriguing treatment for trauma-related disorders that is based on novel neurobiological theories. It has the potential to significantly advance our understanding and intervention of the complex emotional difficulties often associated with developmental trauma.' Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and the director of the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) research unit, University of Western Ontario, United States of America.
