Ms. Lowensteins wisdom with regard to the integration of trauma work, play therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy truly shines in Cory Helps Kids with Sexual Abuse. It is a must-have for clinicians doing trauma work with children! Her knowledge, compassion and skill are evident in the way she weaves psycho-education, coping skills and exposure work in a creative and engaging way. For those clinicians doing TFCBT, it is a wonderful companion to the treatment model!
