Our local community college picks an 'Book of the Year' each year. They ask that it be a topic that applies to as many of their programs and clubs as possible. I proposed the book Childhood Dysrupted by Donna Jackson Nakazawa. I took their course catalogue and gave them a bibliography on how the ACE's apply to most of their programs. If you would like a copy of the bibliography feel free to email me email@example.com.
Specifically with regard to childhood maltreatment the University of Maryland has a program called Family Informed Trauma Therapy http://fittcenter.umaryland.edu/
Following the work of Bessel Van der Kolk my current focus has been trying to get the Creative (also called Expressive) Therapies recognized by my state so that they can get in the reimbursement system. (Currently only Social Workers and Art Therapist licenses are recognized). Education for these is changing. In the U.S. There are two universities that offer PhD level programs. Drexel offers an Creative Therapies degree. Leslie offers an Expressive Therapies degree. I am a Case Manager. I am always looking for resources that touch other parts of the brain than just talk therapy. One of the most valuable online resources comes from the field of Psychodrama http://ac-ts.com/
