Practitioners helping adult survivors of child sexual abuse need to be aware of the thought processes of offenders. The premise of Anna Salter's major book is that those who do not recognize an internalized perpetrator when they hear one will often be frustrated by the tenacity of the survivor's self blame. Primarily oriented towards treating adult survivors, this invaluable book will also be useful for treating sex offenders. It includes discussion of crucial issues such as: what clinicians who treat survivors need to know about sex offenders; the different ways sadistic and nonsadistic offenders think and the resulting different `footprints' they leave in the heads of survivors; how trauma affects survivors' world-views;

Have you ever looked deep into the eyes of an animal and felt entirely known? Often, the connections we share with non-human animals represent our safest and most reliable relationships, offering unique and profound opportunities for healing in periods of hardship. This book focuses on research developments, models, and practical applications of human-animal connection and animal-assisted intervention for diverse populations who have experienced trauma. Physiological and psychological trauma are explored across three broad and interconnected domains: 1) child maltreatment and family violence; 2) acute and post-traumatic stress, including military service, war, and developmental trauma; and 3) times of crisis, such as the ever-increasing occurrence of natural disasters, community violence, terrorism, and anticipated or actual grief and loss. Contributing authors, who include international experts in the fields of trauma and human-animal connection, examine how our relationships with animals can help build resiliency and foster healing to transform trauma. A myriad of animal species and roles, including companion, therapy, and service animals are discussed. Authors also consider how animals are included in a variety of formal and informal models of trauma recovery across the human lifespan, with special attention paid to canine- and equine-assisted interventions and psychotherapy. In addition, authors emphasize the potential impacts to animals who provide trauma-informed services, and discuss how we can respect their participation and implement best practices and ethical standards to ensure their well-being. The reader is offered a comprehensive understanding of the history of research in this field, as well as the latest advancements and areas in need of further or refined investigation. Likewise, authors explore, in depth, emerging practices and methodologies for helping people and communities thrive in the face of traumatic events and their long-term impacts. As animals are important in cultures all over the world, cross-cultural and often overlooked animal-assisted and animal welfare applications are also highlighted throughout the text.

The definitive new guide on healing trauma and taming our triggers, by Harvard-trained-Psychiatrist and pioneer of mind-body medicine, Doctor James Gordon. Trauma comes to all of us, through grief or from a painful experience; even if our symptoms do not reach that of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, the consequences can be devastating. The good news is that there are self-care tools to help us face the storm, heal our traumas and become healthier and more whole than ever before because of them. In Transforming Trauma, Doctor Gordon equips readers with the first evidence-based program to reverse the effects of trauma on our bodies and minds that he has used to support thousands of people across the world who have suffered - from Syrian refugees and 9/11 survivors to everyday people with emotional or physical illness. Doctor Gordon believes that any challenge can be overcome once you have the right techniques - he will show us how to recognise our triggers step-by-step - those words, actions, perceptions that in some way resemble a past trauma - and let them become our teachers, so we can finally realise that that is then and this is now and in turn, open the door for freedom from our past and a fresh route for hope, purpose and love. 'This is the book on trauma treatment I've been waiting for' - Dr Andrew Weil, New York Times bestselling author + Professor of Medicine 'This book could give you back your life in unimaginable ways, it will inspire you to say 'yes' to the seemingly inconceivable and impossible' - Jon Kabat-Zinn

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR®) has helped thousands of clients haunted by abuse histories or recent traumatic events. It also benefits patients who have not found relief with other therapies and those with chronic conditions or blocked personal and professional performance. EMDR® therapy incorporates eye movements into a comprehensive approach that processes and releases information trapped in the body-mind, freeing people from disturbing images and body sensations, debilitating emotions, and restrictive beliefs. Not only does healing occur much more rapidly than in traditional therapy, but clients also experience a sense of joy, openness, and deep connection with others. EMDR® seems to be a quantum leap in the human ability to heal trauma and maladaptive beliefs.

Whether it's physical, psychological, social, historical, or ongoing, trauma is a universal experience, and this book provides professionals with the approaches necessary for successful and empowering interventions across the trauma spectrum. Part one examines the steps individuals take to heal their traumas. Nicolas survives an attack by his own dog; Tay rebuilds her life after years of incest; Claire speaks out about being molested by a program participant at her mental health clinic; and Erma copes with the shattering memories of childhood abuse. Part two focuses on interpersonal dynamics. Frank is held accountable for his violence toward his wife; Erin and her mother confront the reality of bullying and victimization in schools; Beth faces discrimination because of her sexual orientation; and staff members at a transitional housing shelter deal with the death of a client. Part three recounts stories of resilience and healing at the social and community level. Salome and her family process the historical trauma of the massacre of her American Indian ancestors. A group of boys who became fatherless after 9/11 respond to experiential ways of coping with their grief. Jennifer and Kim live daily with the social trauma of poverty. Three Liberian families survive torture, flight, refugee camps, and resettlement. Amory struggles to find meaning and move on from his experience as a combat veteran, and the story of Angelina Batiste epitomizes the loss and resilience of those who lived through Hurricane Katrina. Trauma Transformed provides insight into the psychological and spiritual resources practitioners need to help victims move forward and improve upon their circumstances. Readers will also learn to strengthen their sense of self to prevent secondary trauma.

"The purpose of this research is to examine transformative healing through dance art; immersing, and processing the pivotal point of traumatic memory and somatic awareness. I investigate the practices of Irmgard Bartenieff and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen in my journey to reintegrate embodied awareness and somatic connectivity. In addition, this research explores the neuroscience behind traumatic experience and the effects on the body and mind. Through the lens of somatic experiencing, my resulting choreography faces the physical and emotional responses of accessing my traumatic memory, and expresses the therapeutic phenomena of reintegrating self by moving for change."--Abstract, p. 1.

In Part One, Anne shares her story along with true stories of other survivors with whom she has journeyed. Biblical stories that demonstrate God's extravagant love are woven throughout the book.

Part Two is written for priests, pastors, ministry leaders, family and friends who want to come alongside trauma survivors.
