Transforming Trauma Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma

Transforming Trauma Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma

Author: Doctor James Gordon Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/11/2019

Trauma is an integral, inescapable part of life. Even when our symptoms do not reach the level of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma can challenge our ideas about who we are with devastating consequences for our health. Often enough, it compounds our pain and confusion with feelings that we've been responsible for what has happened to us - whether that be a broken relationship, a loss or a traumatic, painful experience or triggering event. In Transforming Trauma, Harvard-trained Psychiatrist and world-recognised authority and pioneer of mind-body medicine Doctor James Gordon, presents the first evidenced-based program that will help to reverse the psychological and biological damage caused by trauma. He will equip readers with the tools and techniques of self-care that he has used over the last 50 years to help thousands of people across the world who have suffered - from Syrian refugees and 9/11 survivors to everyday people with emotional or physical illness. He will help us re-establish broken brain connections and promote the healthy integration of thoughts and feelings; be freed from the hopeless rumination that binds us to our traumas and offer a new path for hope and healing and an opportunity to reclaim our daily lives and experiences.

Landscapes of Trauma The Psychology of the Battlefield

Landscapes of Trauma The Psychology of the Battlefield

Author: Nigel Hunt Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/08/2019

Integrating trauma studies with historical research and social psychology, Landscapes of Trauma examines a range of battlefields from across history, including Waterloo, the Battle of Sedan, the Battle of the Ebro and the Battle of Normandy, to bring to light what these battlefields say about our collective and individual psyches. Hunt explores how war shapes the nature of trauma, not only by its innate horror but also by the historical and societal contexts it is fought in, from the cultural and social conventions of the period to the topography of the settings. This book provides a deep analysis of how war is experienced and remembered in different eras and by different generations. Moving beyond the clinical concept of post-traumatic stress disorder, Hunt discusses how trauma can be understood socially and historically, as well as through the lens of individual suffering. This book also investigates the psychological foundations of memorialisation, remembrance and commemoration that shape the legacy of the battles discussed. Using interviews with veterans, their letters, journals and diaries, as well as literary and historical sources, Hunt locates the battlefield as a place where humans explore the parameters of human behaviour, thought and emotion. This book is in important resource for students and scholars interested in the psychology of trauma and war, as well as military history.
