Overview

Dr. Lynn Karjala unravels the mystery of dissociation in this “must-read” book for psychotherapists who treat the aftereffects of trauma, as well as for trauma survivors and their loved ones. In simple and clear language, she explains the connection between dissociation, trauma, and the devastating physical and psychological symptoms that stem from them. She offers a thorough description and understanding of the three phases of trauma treatment, with an eminently practical guide for using the Quintessential Safe Place to minimize the terrifying experience of retraumatization by the flooding of traumatic feelings and thoughts. There is an engaging description of the “critical voice/protectors,” a very active internal system aimed, among other things, at derailing treatment and preventing the patient from experiencing any hope of recovery. Finally, there is an introduction to mind-body techniques and their application to the treatment of trauma. An essential addition to the library of any psychotherapist working with dissociative patients and a valuable resource for trauma survivors and their loved ones.

    A Must read for therapists and patients

    I found this book very helpful and easy to read. The author does a good job of taking you through the steps of some newer techniques to use in healing. This is a must read for anyone 'patients or therapists'recovering and healing from trauma, regardless of the source of the trauma. If you are healing from trauma, it may be best to work with a therapist until you get the techniques described in the book working well.
