Trauma and Recovery

The Aftermath of Violence--From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror

Author: Judith L. Herman

Publisher: Basic Books

ISBN: 0465098738

Category: Psychology

Page: 336

View: 9230

A revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking work that changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims. When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a groundbreaking work. In the intervening years, it has become the basic text for understanding trauma survivors. By placing individual experience in a broader political frame, Judith Herman argues that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. Drawing on her own research on incest, as well as on 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. A new epilogue reviews what has changed--and what has not changed--over two decades. Trauma and Recovery is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand how we heal and are healed.

Traumatic Divorce and Separation

The Impact of Domestic Violence and Substance Abuse in Custody and Divorce

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0190276002

Category: Law

Page: 224

View: 9533

Traumatic Divorce and Separation integrates the conflicting mental health perspectives concerning trauma theory and the study of divorce, in what the author has termed "traumatic divorce" -- that is, divorce complicated by the high-risk factors of domestic violence, mental illness, and/or substance abuse. The text's interdisciplinary discussion examines issues of financial disparities for women following divorce, traumatic symptoms in children and adults, and the legal controversies about the admissibility of psychological theories related to abuse. The author also addresses: domestic violence as a gendered crime against women; the need for a trauma-informed judicial response; and the need for a systemic judicial response that incorporates an understanding of domestic violence and child maltreatment to provide services and protections. The book is an invaluable resource for professionals and academics in social work, forensic psychology, law, and related mental health fields, as well as academics interested in gender based discrimination in the courts.

No More Secrets is the story of six women who participated in a narrative healing group at The Second Step - a domestic violence non-profit in Newton, Massachusetts. In a series of deeply personal conversations spanning four years, the women share their experiences of Intimate Partner Violence, and in the sharing, begin to heal. Together, they wrote No More Secrets to educate, inspire, and offer hope to survivors, families and communities. "No More Secrets offers the best kind of help possible for women who are involved with abusive partners: the warmth, the wisdom, and the triumphs of other women who have come through destructive relationships, and who have found their way to freedom." - Lundy Bancroft, author of Why Does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men "By bravely sharing their stories, Allison, Becca, Donna-Marie, Cecilia, Olive and Selma speak to the strength of community in the most challenging times. Overcoming domestic violence requires each of us to support survivors and send them a resounding message that they will never be alone - this book does just that." Congressman Joseph Kennedy III "No More Secrets is an extraordinarily intimate look at the emotional lives and bitter experience of those who have lived through domestic violence and emerged into a community of love and hard-earned wisdom. These voices ring out clear and true." Joyce Kulhawik, Emmy Award-winning journalist JoycesChoices.com

Through an intensive clinical study of forty incest victims and numerous interviews with professionals in mental health, child protection, and law enforcement, Judith Herman develops a composite picture of the incestuous family. In a new afterword, Herman offers a lucid and thorough overview of the knowledge that has developed about incest and other forms of sexual abuse since this book was first published. Reviewing the extensive research literature that demonstrates the validity of incest survivors' sometimes repressed and recovered memories, she convincingly challenges the rhetoric and methods of the backlash movement against incest survivors, and the concerted attempt to deny the events they find the courage to describe.

Recovering from Un-Natural Disasters is a must-read handbook for pastors and church leaders of communities who could or perhaps already have experienced an un-natural disaster, such as gun violence, suicides, or sexual abuse. Unlike natural disasters, un-natural disasters deal with the concept of sin and require a different recovery strategy. In this book, readers will explore the four phases of human-caused disaster — Devastation and Heroism, Disillusionment, Reforming, and Wisdom — and receive step-by-step suggestions to use with their faith community during the recovery process. Example worship resources, including prayers, music suggestions, and sermons that are appropriate to use during periods of trauma and recovery, are included.
