Co-occuring SA/MH treatment, neurological advances, looking at behavior through a trauma lense
Bob Bennett commented
I believe looking at all mental illnesses through the lens of trauma may prove to be the most important advance made in the past twenty years or more. The effects of trauma does not have to rise to the level of PTSD to have negative impacts. The book Healing Trauma, by Peter Levine should be a must read for all who work in the field of mental health, from Peer Specialists, case managers, social workers, nurses, administrators, psychiatrists and psychologists - as well as all attorneys and judges who work with criminal defendants, and not just individuals with known mental health problems. It has the possibility of restructuring the entire criminal justice system.
