Overview

Safe and effective principles and strategies for recovery from trauma.


Trauma recovery is tricky; however, there are several key principles that can help make the process safe and effective. This book gives self help readers, therapy clients, and therapists alike the skills to understand and implement eight keys to successful trauma healing: mindful identification of what is helpful, recognizing survival, having the option to not remember, creating a supportive inner dialogue, forgiving not being able to stop the trauma, understanding and sharing shame, finding your own recovery pace; mobilizing your body, and helping others.



This is not another book promoting a new method or type of treatment; rather, it is a necessary adjunct to self-help and professional recovery programs. After reading this book, readers will be able to recognize their own individual needs and evaluate whether those needs are being met. They will have the tools necessary to put themselves in the drivers seat, navigating their own safe road to recovery.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Psychotherapist Rothschild (The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment) here provides a practical explanation of her novel approach to trauma recovery and therapy, which strives to make healing less painful than the traumatic incident. Drawing on her personal experience with trauma and her treatment process, Rothschild realized that treatment does not necessarily require vivid remembering of the originating trauma's level of distress. Her keys to recovery include plotting a course of treatment, realizing that remembering is not required, stopping flashbacks, reconciling forgiveness and shame, taking small steps, and making the best of the situation. In each passionately written chapter, Rothschild provides a description of the key principle, a case example, a lay-oriented discussion of the theoretical underpinnings of the issue, examples of how to apply the principle, and practical exercises. Rothschild's valuable information is not designed to replace established therapeutic approaches but will serve as a nice adjunct. VERDICT Readers who have experienced traumatic events will find this a helpful tool as they work with their professional therapist. Also of interest to self-help readers and professional therapists.—Dale Farris, Groves, TX
Glenn R. Schiraldi
“Superbly written! Babette Rothschild has the rare ability to explain trauma's complexities in a way that makes sense. Brilliant in its clarity and simplicity, profound in its wisdom, and practical in its counsel, this book is a major contribution to the trauma literature which will greatly benefit survivors and therapists alike. Highly recommended.”
Journal of Mental Health
“A succinct and easy read, founded predominantly on compassion-focused and mindfulness-based approaches, this book is certainly one I would recommend to my own trauma clients.... [S]traight-forward and enlightening to read.”
