Theaters of Trauma: Dialogues for Healing

Front Cover
iUniverse, Jul 11, 2008 - Psychology - 84 pages
This book is an unflinching and deeply personal rendering of the emotional turmoil encountered in healing from trauma that is both physical and spiritual. The reader is invited inside the consulting room to witness the theaters of trauma where dramatic pain, fear, and despair are enacted side by side with courage, honesty, and resiliency. This slim volume presents trauma recovery in a unique style that is both powerful and refreshingly free of psychological jargon. "Theaters of Trauma goes directly to the heart, burning soul, and drama of traumatic experiences. The images created by penetrating prose will captivate and mesmerize the reader. This book is a special gift to everyone: people curious about trauma and its treatment by a master clinician; therapists who want to learn more about their work; and survivors who are struggling to break free of their chains." Stuart D. Perlman, Ph.D. Author of The Therapist's Emotional Survival
