Kindle Judith Lewis Herman Ý Trauma and Recovery eBook Ä Trauma and PDF/EPUB or Ý

When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992 it was hailed as a groundbreaking work In the intervening years Herman’s volume has changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims In a new afterword Herman chronicles the incredible response the book has elicited and explains how the issues surrounding the topic have shifted within the clinical community and the culture at large Trauma and Recovery brings a new level of understanding to a set of problems usually considered individually Herman draws on her own cutting edge research in domestic violence as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism The book puts individual experience in a broader political frame arguing that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context Meticulously documented and frequently using the victims’ own words as well as those from classic literary works and prison diaries Trauma and Recovery is a powerful work that will continue to profoundly impact our thinking

    i just taught this for the first time for some reason this time around the book had a tremendously disruptive impact on me it was simply put like going through a trauma experience the last part about the three stages of recovery gave me palpable relief as if i were going through recovery myself as i read the book with the classreading it with a group made a huge difference at least some of the students experienced some level of traumatization it was important to debrief at the end some felt compelled to share stories all reported discussing the book outside of class the level of attentiveness during discussion was so high you could tell who had done the reading and who hadn't this book is not about a generically traumatizing world it's about regularly misdiagnosed mental pain the number of mental health professionals who are willing to journey with a patient to the roots of trauma is minimal the number of those who have the competence training and wisdom to do so safely and successfully is so tiny if you find one it's a miracle most mental health professionals will misdiagnose post traumatic syndromes most mental health professionals will slap demeaning and belittling diagnoses on you and declare you sick for life and doomed to a lifetime of maintenance drug use most won't even feel the need to talk to you it's amazing the way trauma imposes its stealth on the world of healers the refusal to recognize it and deal with it is as persistent in healers as it is in sufferers a student was brave enough and healed enough to discuss a traumatic experience of their own in class gently we asked questions gently we helped them see how they were reproducing in their narrative the telltale symptoms of the traumatized person it was nothing people have it much worse i am ashamed of my reaction i am trying not to give in to weakness and fear it was pretty intense and i hope healing for all of us the student's openness helped us see that they are okay one can experience trauma and be okay after reading the horrors depicted in this book what a reliefthere are mental health professionals who know how to deal with trauma and if you have a traumatized past you should look for them at the very least you should look for a survivor group the internet will do in a pinch trauma doesn't heal in isolation trauma is a dramatic break in relationship with the world with others with the self with god and can only heal in relationship there are aspects in which this book is dated its feminism is a bit black and white and ignores the myriad ways in which gender related trauma cross pollinates across gender boundaries such as they are they constantly reshape themselves anyway men get beaten threatened and raped too women go to war violent men are often themselves trauma victims the low level traumatization in which all women are steeped qua women has a low level traumatic correspondent in guys if 1 in x women will be raped in their lifetimes 1 in x guys will be raping a woman in their lifetimes as JH demonstrates when she talks of war the perpetration of violence leaves the perpetrator scarred yet she does not extend this observation to civilian life this is a mistake we try to understand and forgive the horrors soldiers perpetrate under orders on the battlefield whatever that is that specific spacial designation no longer exists but we are loath to understand the pressures that push men to take their rage out on women children other men and increasingly strange bystanders in our civilian communities what lies behind school shootings and other civilian rampages? diagnosing and medicating mental pain away clearly is not working we have to restructure our culture of psychic healing from the ground up it has to be based on deep listening deep investigation and a genuine long term commitment to the well being of the patient too few graduate programs in psychology train therapists in the arts of deep listening and deep therapy this is a crisis we can no longer afford to ignore
