"The first section of this book provides a concise overview of the history of treating posttraumatic stress, which has in the past focused on an illness ideology that emphasizes deficits and abnormal functioning as opposed to health adaptation." (Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal, Winter 2009)
"In sum, TRG is an important contribution to the growing literature on positive psychology. It should be on the reading list of any clinician who is dealing with trauma survivors. It presents a welcome contrast to the immense volume of material on psychopathology following trauma." (PsycCRITIQUES; 1/28/09)
