In their practise guidelines document, BlueKnot revolutionise possibilities for recovery for the large numbers of people with unresolved “complex trauma” – child abuse in all its forms, neglect, family and community violence and other adverse childhood events. They establish insights that optimism about recovery from complex trauma is warranted, and that childhood trauma can be resolved. The comprehensive 150 page ASCA Practice Guidelines are only available for download at the BlueKnot website.
