In this groundbreaking book, a leading clinical psychiatrist redefines how we think about and treat victims of trauma. A "stunning achievement" that remains a "classic for our generation." (Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., author of The Body Keeps the Score). Trauma and Recovery is revered as the seminal text on understanding trauma survivors. By placing individual experience in a broader political frame, Harvard psychiatrist Judith Herman argues that psychological trauma is inseparable from its social and political context. Drawing on her own research on incest, as well as a vast literature on combat veterans and victims of political terror, she shows surprising parallels between private horrors like child abuse and public horrors like war. Hailed by the New York Times as "one of the most important psychiatry works to be published since Freud," Trauma and Recovery is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand how we heal and are healed.

An increasing number of students and professionals are choosing to travel the globe to engage with the realities of trauma and human suffering through mental health aid. But in the field of global mental health, good intentions are not enough to ensure good training, development, and care. The risk of harm is real when outsiders deliver mental health aid in culturally inappropriate and otherwise na•ve ways. This book, based on the experiences of the co-editors and their colleagues at Burma Border Projects (BBP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mental health and psychosocial well-being of the displaced people of Burma, sets out global mental health theory allied with local perspectives, experiences, real-life challenges, strengths, and best practices. Topics include assessment and intervention protocols, vulnerable groups and the special challenges they present, and supervision and evaluation programs. An introduction by the editors establishes the political and health contexts for the volume. Written in a style appropriate for academic audiences and lay readers, this book will serve as a fundamental text for clinicians, interns, volunteers, and researchers who work in regions of the world that have suffered the violence of war, forced displacement, human rights violations, poverty, and oppression.

'Childhood Trauma and Recovery' presents best practice in helping children affected by early life sexual abuse to recover and lead healthy lives. At its heart is the SACCS approach, pioneered by Mary Walsh, which was developed to provide such children with specialist care and treatment. By creating recovery teams that cross over traditional boundaries to put the child at the centre of all activity, the approach enables young people to replace unhealthy ways of thinking with stronger, more appropriate cause-effect mechanisms. Drawing on decades of experience with thousands of young people, the authors challenge the view that simply placing traumatised young people in safe, loving environments will be sufficient for them to recover. They expose the challenges of caring for children who may be highly sexualised by abuse then show how, by ensuring that these children feel safe and trusted and learning to communicate with them effectively, practitioners can begin a process of actively helping them to heal. -Describes the evolution of the SACCS model of excellent practice for those charged with caring for, deciding for, and promoting best outcomes for children. -References current theory and practice, enabling readers to develop a critical understanding of therapeutic trauma work with vulnerable young people -Based on decades of experience and the work of a noted pioneer in the field, dedicated to creating real recovery for the most hurt children in society -More than 64,000 children are currently in care in the UK alone, according to NSPCC figures, and more than 60% are looked after due to abuse and neglect

Hereditary Trauma and Recovery

Extreme and traumatic events can change a person -- and often, years later, even affect their children. Researchers have now unmasked a piece in the puzzle of how the inheritance of traumas may be mediated. The phenomenon has long been known in psychology: traumatic experiences can induce behavioral disorders that are passed down from one generation to the next. It is only recently that scientists have begun to understand the physiological processes underlying hereditary trauma. Depression. Anxiety. Chronic Pain. Phobias. Obsessive thoughts. The evidence is compelling: the roots of these difficulties may not reside in our immediate life experience or in chemical imbalances in our brains-but in the lives of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited-that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations. Hereditary Trauma and Recovery builds on the work of leading experts in post-traumatic stress, including Mount Sinai School of Medicine neuroscientist Rachel Yehuda and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk. Even if the person who suffered the original trauma has died, or the story has been forgotten or silenced, memory and feelings can live on. These emotional legacies are often hidden, encoded in everything from gene expression to everyday language, and they play a far greater role in our emotional and physical health than has ever before been understood. Hereditary Trauma and Recovery offers a pragmatic and prescriptive guide to the method, the Core Language Approach. Diagnostic self-inventories provide a way to uncover the fears and anxieties conveyed through everyday words, behaviors, and physical symptoms. Techniques for developing a genogram or extended family tree create a map of experiences going back through the generations. And visualization, active imagination, and direct dialogue create pathways to reconnection, integration, and reclaiming life and health. Hereditary Trauma and Recovery is a transformative approach to resolving longstanding difficulties that in many cases, traditional therapy, drugs, or other interventions have not had the capacity to touch.

Responding to the growing number of psychologically-informed services for people experiencing social exclusion and, in particular, homelessness, this book gives professionals the information and understanding they need to be fully informed in their practice with this client group. It begins with theory, looking at the psychology of social exclusion and the processes that underlie it, and considers the relationship between trauma, complex needs, homelessness and social exclusion. Presenting practical interventions and case studies, the authors then reveal what makes an effective service in practice and a client perspective on social exclusion and recovery is provided. This is essential reading for all those involved in developing services that meet the needs of socially excluded people with histories of complex trauma or presentations of complex needs, including those who are homeless, refugees and asylum seekers, Traveller and Roma communities and people involved with the criminal justice system.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar), course: Envisioning Mad Selves, language: English, abstract: Bryony Lavery's play Frozen consists of two acts and 30 scenes and was first performed by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 1998. The three main characters of the play are Agnetha, an American psychologist, Nancy, a mother whose ten-year-old daughter Rhona gets abused and killed, and Ralph, a sexual serial killer who also murdered Rhona. All three of them can be regarded as traumatised characters and in the beginning of the play they are, literally, frozen. However, Lavery allows each of them to take a journey towards a melting of their frozen states. The term paper investigates how the concept of trauma is represented in the play, which in this case implies a focus on the illustration of the characters' frozen states and their "melting." Therefore I will first provide an overview of the concept of trauma and will place Frozen into the context of "Trauma Drama," before I move on to a close reading of the play.

Military Mind Control provides a single case history written by Dr. Ross. Terese, a woman treated in Dr. Ross' private practice, is a survivor of childhood trauma that included paternal incest, ritual abuse and military mind control. The case history describes the therapeutic goals, tasks, strategies and principles that have contributed to her recovery, including the principle of therapeutic neutrality. It is a documented fact that victims of CIA and military mind control experimentation have been hypnotized, given hallucinogens, held in sensory deprivation chambers, given massive amounts of electroshock and subjected to unethical, inhumane treatment by psychiatrists. Therefore, Terese's participation in a military mind control program is unproven, it could very well be real.

Trauma and Recovery in the Twenty First Century Irish Novel

The desire to engage and confront traumatic subjects was a facet of Irish literature for much of the twentieth century. Yet, just as Irish society has adopted a more direct and open approach to the past, so too have Irish authors evolved in their response to, and literary uses of, trauma. In Trauma and Recovery in the Twenty-First-Century Irish Novel, Costello-Sullivan considers the ways in which the Irish canon not only represents an ongoing awareness of trauma as a literary and cultural force, but also how this representation has shifted since the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century. While earlier trauma narratives center predominantly on the role of silence and the individual and/or societal suffering that traumas induce, twenty-first-century Irish narratives increasingly turn from just the recognition of traumatic experiences toward exploring and representing the process of healing and recovery both structurally and narratively. Through a series of keenly observed close readings, Costello-Sullivan explores the work of Colm Tóibín, John Banville, Anne Enright, Emma Donohue, Colum McCann, and Sebastian Barry. In highlighting the power of narrative to amend and address memory and trauma, Costello-Sullivan argues that these works reflect a movement beyond merely representing trauma toward also representing the possibility of recovery from it.
