Abstract

This essay explores the challenges of psychotherapeutic work with adult clients who have suffered trauma as children. It discusses the evidence for best practices and how to respectfully integrate client preferences as described in the evidence-based practice process. Despite this knowledge, there are gaps between evidence-based practices as presented in research studies and the reality of putting them into practice in real-world settings.
