This volume sheds new light on addiction and other ailments, detailing a recipe for transcendence. The author describes pattern addiction as the root of a variety of psychologicl and physical afflictions including what is traditionally called addiction. Drug addiction offers one of the most tangible examples of patterning and some of the most tangible evidence that addiction to a pattern can be transcended. Pattern addiction is part of the human condition. It frequently manifests itself in explicit symptoms such as drug addiction, physical pain, chronic ailments including ulcers, and even cancer. Implicit pattern addictions are built over a long period of time because most neurological programming takes place over time. This patterning becomes detrimental when the pattern is harmful to the emotional, physical, and/or spiritual well-being of the individual (or his family or community). All too often, medicine treats the explicit symptoms of an affliction without correcting the underlying and more implicit pattern addictions. This is due, in part, to the inability of current medical theory to do more.

In Treating Complex Trauma, renowned clinicians Mary Jo Barrett and Linda Stone Fish present the Collaborative Change Model (CCM), a clinically evaluated model that facilitates client and practitioner collaboration and provides invaluable tools for clients struggling with the impact and effects of complex trauma. A practical guide, Treating Complex Trauma organizes clinical theory, outcome research, and decades of experiential wisdom into a manageable blueprint for treatment. With an emphasis on relationships, the model helps clients move from survival mindstates to engaged mindstates, and as a sequential and organized model, the CCM can be used by helping professionals in a wide array of disciplines and settings. Utilization of the CCM in collaboration with clients and other trauma-informed practitioners helps prevent the re-traumatization of clients and the compassion fatigue of the practitioner so that they can work together to build a hopeful and meaningful vision of the future.
