The book is written to help clients, beginning clinicians or even experienced clinicians that may be new to trauma, family members of people with trauma histories, and students in understanding the impact of trauma to be able to be more compassionate and make sense of what is happening. It is part of academic curriculum at West Chester University in the multicultural courses as it covers race related trauma as well, and is in the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine courses of addiction and trauma.
