Trauma: Treatment and Transformation

Front Cover
iUniverse, 2004 - Psychology - 252 pages
In this post-9/11 world, therapists need to expand their toolboxes to deal with trauma and its effects. This book provides a new way of dealing with the devastating emotional residue of a traumatic event. It centers on the innovative application of hypnotherapy to help trauma victims "self-actualize," regain their lives, and move forward again. This book outlines the effects of trauma on mind and body and provides comprehensive systems and treatment plans for the mental disorders caused or exacerbated by trauma. Many people are familiar with the famous "fight" or "flight" responses to trauma, but few now about the "freeze" response. "Freeze" is the most dangerous of the trio since it inhibits any reaction and leaves he victim immobile. It can lead directly to Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Also included is a brief survey of brain research and its implications. Dr. Warren takes readers on a brief journey of self-discovery to unlock their full self-potential and raise it to a new level.
