Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Psychotherapist Cori (The Tao of Contemplation: Re-Sourcing the Inner Life) translates the dark language of trauma in this primer of agony and recovery, with a deep understanding of the tortuous journey many suffer after sexual assault, war, violence and childhood abuse. Skillfully, she avoids the bevy of usual tales of misery found in self-help books on trauma, focusing instead on the resilience of the spirit, regaining control and resuming a renewed life. Very timely and informative, Cori's guidebook includes a long segment on PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), recognizing the emotional and moral conflicts faced by troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and attempting to reintegrate into society. The author offers solid information on types of trauma disorders and stresses the importance of selecting caring, sensitive health practitioners and therapists as critical to speed the healing quest (she offers sensible specifics on choosing a therapist). Concluding with her own story as an incest survivor (based on recovered memories), the book is a compact, knowing work of atonement, grace, compassion and healing. (Nov.)

    A Wonderful Resource for Those Affected by Trauma

    If you are a trauma survivor -- especially if you are just beginning to deal with your trauma and symptoms -- please read this book. This is, finally, the book I've been looking for and really needed a year or two ago when I first started dealing directly with my trauma history and its affects on my life! I recommend this whole heartedly as a great resource for survivors and their loved ones. It is the best general guide to the subject that I have read. I have read most of the other books folks typically recommend, and usually found them interesting and helpful. At the same time, I felt like they were either too detailed and technical 'Levine, Herman, Rothschild, etc.' to really be practical. Or, they had too many exercises, reflections, and inspirational quotes for me 'The Courage to Heal and its kindred' and I found them a bit too sappy and off-putting for where I was in my process. In this book, Cori strikes just the right balance of information, suggestions, and tone. She also does a wonderful job of summarizing what trauma is, how it affects the body and mind, what therapeutic methods can be helpful, and how to generally care for oneself through the healing process. She also provides tools for self-reflection, and intersperses stories from other survivors that make the data relevant and come to life. If this book had been available when I started dealing with my trauma, I think I would have understood the situation better and would have been more equipped to make good choices and deal with things in a caring and effective way. While this is clearly a sort of overview or handbook, Cori provides plenty of additional references and resources so you can do further investigating on your own. My one small quibble 'and it's is very small', is that she only mentions meditation and mindfulness practices in passing. I have found these practices to be essential to my healing. But I recognize that they are a bit outside the mainstream, and may not be right for everyone. Overall, a wonderful resource!
