It explores trauma treatment for youth (best practices, treatment modalities, common factors, and trauma narratives). Finally, the Storiez intervention is presented using didactic material, video content, and participatory activities.

She takes a highly creative approach to her work with youth, using narratives, art, music, poetry, and play.
